Flower Power: An Art Book

I've become obsessed with photo books. My latest creation is called "Flower Power". Its being printed through Shutterfly. Here's a sample of the pages.

Each page was created digitally using Photoshop Elements, personal photos and commercially available digital supplies. I love flowers. I love taking photos of flowers. And I love creating art with those photos. I can't wait to see the printed book!

Postcards received: #1 from Christian Baki. #2 from Gail Vanerheides in Hawaii. #3 from Ma' in France. #4 from Amy Whitehurst. #5 from Bill Laing. Even though they were pretty damaged with either smudges or tears, it was a lot of fun receiving them.

This exhibit is just amazing! Mike Stilkey is famous for his book sculptor art.

If you live in Southern California, you can see this art at the Irvine Great Park.

Caribbean Cruise

Over the holiday, we went on a cruise to five islands - Barbados, St. Lucia, Antigua, St. Maarten, and St. Croix. We also visited San Juan, Puerto Rico. It was a beautiful trip and I've made a photo book through Shutterfly with pages I created in Photoshop Elements (digital memory keeping). I can't wait to see it in printed format. Here are a few pages. The rest of the pages can be viewed here on my Flickr site.
