Hello, everyone! It's me, Cam, here with Maggie. We have some miscellaneous photos for you this Sunday to help you feel serene. Our mom has been continuing to try to fully understand her photo editing program (Affinity Photo) and instead of using the instructor's photos for the lessons, she uses her own. Naturally, most of the are of us. (Birds come in a close second.). Without further ado, let's get to the photos!
Here's a nice one of us girls out front:

After going through the workflow checklist on that, she followed a tutorial to learn how to convert to a pencil sketch:

After that, she figured out on her own how to bring a little color back in, to make it look like a colored pencil drawing:

I think she's starting to catch on!
I can't remember what she was learning how to do on this, but here's Maggie from a recent pool party:

Our mom started following a lesson on how to cut a subject with a lot of hair out of one scene and paste it into another. The instructor used a supermodel with long, flowing hair. Mom used us, of course. Affinity Photo is allowing her to get down to each strand of fur (unlike PhotoShop Elements) to make the selection look more realistic. She did great on that part of the lesson, but the pasting into another scene didn't work like in the lesson, so she improvised. If you follow her on FaceBook, you've already seen this, but we think it's cool, so here it is:

We like her version better than the lesson! It looks like album art for some kind of Celtic rock group or something. Like maybe Blackmore's Night
!!! Don't you think?
That's about it for this week!

"She learned how to do her own Orton Effect. I thought this would be a good closer."
We hope you have a wonderfully serene Sunday!
Cammie! (and Mags)
