The Motif A Day can be found under “Collection” on the side bar, and today is a greyscale of two birds on a leafy branch. It was greyscaled from photo and i thought this would be an easier way to see the basic shapoes and outlines.

Got the scanner back running and even have figured out some things on the new digital camera..i am pretty excited about the new ways of capturing and keeping images!
Have also been playing around in MS Paint and my PSP program just to remind myself of the tools available. Here’s a color swatch i came up with in PSP. It was made by using the airbrush tool at its largest(and therefore most diffuse spray of color) setting. I thought it would make a really pretty piece of fabric so i saved the basic swatch.
