Happiness - student project

Project 1- This is my first effort at colouring in the word in the Belta font.  I found it quite challenging at first to make selections, then I realized that I had to make my selections smaller so that there were closing lines at some place.  Helen's demonstration of using the rectangular marquee tool to make a new selection, and then refining the selection with the magic brush in areas that overlap was wonderful, and, as Helen commented, it is almost the only way to (quickly) make complex selections.  I did have to try this selection trick a few times before I got it!

Project 2- I chose these colours to match the princess birthday card that I made for friend's young daughter.  I like this Rabanera font, although it does remind me a bit of the old television cartoon called 'The Flintstones'!

Project 3- This was a great project, doing a cutout shape from text!

Project 4- I got carried away with this fun font, called Pupcat, and really appreciated learning how to make a font into an outline shape!  Here are some of the images for this project, in the order of creation (you can see how I got swept along playing!!).

Project 5- This font is great!  I was just thrilled that Helen taught how to use an EPS file in Photoshop, since I have so many on my hard drive, but I thought that I needed to have Adobe Illustrator to use EPS files.  Yay!

Thank you, Helen, for yet another wonderful class!
