Monday Mosaic


Maddening, I tell you!

I spent hours. No, really, seriously, truly.


And there's no reason for it to have taken so long. I had the photos. I had an idea of what I wanted. I plunkered them all up onto my screen and began to work. But when I went to commit layers or save this or that...

Well, let's just say it was winter rather than autumn.
As in, the blasted thing froze.
And froze again.

And it is now nearly 1 am, hours past my bedtime.
But it's done.

I was going to do a pony one for Mustang U, but at this rate, I think it'll simpy have to wait until next week. I'm certainly not going to do it tonight. Or this morning, as the case happens to be.

I'd encourage those of you who are interested in Steve Holt! to read
the blog entry just south of this.

And now for the rest of the details, if you'd like to participate in Monday Mosaics, trot yourself right on over to Mary's place and sign up! It's great fun (when the blasted thing doesn't freeze on you!)

Okay, I'm off to bed before the sun rises and the critters begin crying for their breakfast.

Beautiful, and I like the old tree trunk.

I feel your pain. Photoshop loves to mess with my Mac when I'm doing something creative and fun and IMPORTANT. I've found it works best when I shut down every single other program...but even then it's not a guarantee.

I love the collage though! Have you dove into some of the free digital scrapping stuff available on the net?

I understand the word "froze" and how frustrating that can get, BUT your mosaic came out great. Unique and colorful - it tells a good story.

All your long efforts paid off. I love this mosaic. I shall be back to read more about the mustangs. Sharon

Lovely mosaic, I'm sorry you were having trouble.

I'm sorry it was so much trouble, but it certainly tuned out great. What a beautiful part of the country you live in! Thanks for sharing your lovely images at MM. :)

Hi Tracey, I also echo how you feel, but in my case I just turn my power off and restart over again. I am a beginner on PS and my daughter gives me advise to save my files in PSD before I convert it to JPEG for posting.

You have a beautiful place. The autumn leaves are so much in its glory, the reds and golds.

You did well with your creativity.
