Eureka!

It's been ages since I've taken a class in Photoshop (15 years ...) and it's not loaded on this computer, so I'm trying to learn again to work with layers and make digital collages in Photo Studio. I mean no offense to anyone, but below is my favorite...in fact I'm curious as to whether or not people would wear this image as a necklace. We live in a fairly conservative area of the nation, and I know I won't be brave enough to wear it in public, but I made a really cool magnet out of it for my studio:

I just used the word "I" more times in that sentence than President Obama did in his entire speech. He's amazing. I'm going to get up, dust myself off and get to work.

Very emotionally layered and probably a very personal self portait(for many) or visual of those layers. To wear this publicly would be to say that one feels very comfortable with their layers laid out for all to see. It would be a very brave position. I just said very more in this comment than Obama did in his entire speech! JK...lol

NICE. Reminiscent of the vintage Fryer figurines that Goebel made so popular in their various stages of intoxication!! I LIKE!

Good for you to brush up on your Photoshop skills.
Honestly? I wouldn't wear it but it would make a fun magnet.

Rachel~ I would happily wear this! No question. As a matter of fact, I think it is very clever!
