No, I’m not *really* playing hooky, honest!! Classes are cancelled for today and tomorrow due to a power outage on campus. Whatever shall I do with my time??? Write up a blog post? Good idea! <vbg> I can tell you what I got accomplished this weekend! I spent much of the weekend playing with Photoshop. I have a love/hate relationship with that program. I love that the creative possibilities are endless and I hate that I have so much to learn!
I wanted to make a new background for my Twitter page using my current favorite picture of Richard Armitage (did I tell you I met him? squeeeee!) and a tornado photo. Yes, I already made a wallpaper & a sig using those two elements, but I am obsessed. I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to make the background look decent on my laptop *and* on our 22inch monitor as well. That almost drove me over the edge! I looked online for some guidelines, but found a lot of conflicting information. After talking to bccmee, I came up with something I could live with. (Thank you, bcc. You ROCK!!)

I liked the image and tornado photo so well, I made a version for my iPhone!

My Twitter page and iPhone were taken care of so I turned my attention to my Facebook cover photo. I’d wanted to change it for a while, but wasn’t sure what to do. The screencaps of my beloved John Standring are not high-res (and where are the promo shots from Sparkhouse, hmmm? Seriously – I need those photos!) and making wallpapers, etc can be tricky with low quality images. I decided to try again anyway.

Not *too* bad, I guess. Now I need a new project!!! Any ideas? 😛
