This is a sketch I did, and then modified it a bit with color on the computer just to try playing with Photo Shop.  It isn't a huge alteration, but one needs to start small.  This is for the hands challenge at Soartful.  If I were proficient in digital art, I would have had my hand opening up at the palm and butterflies flying out of it.  (Someday.)  I am trying to get used to my new computer.  I got a laptop iMAC the other day with wireless internet, so I can play where ever I may go.  I just hooked up my scanner to it, luckily the HP website has all their software ready to download, because I didn't have the software for MAC, on for PC.  Hope you like my hand holding a hopefully lucky clover.


  1. really cool Kristen, one of these days I would love to learn to play with photoshop, it sounds like a fun way to make art, without the mess :)

    Thanks so much for following my blog, I am so excited.

  2. Wow, Kristen..this is lovely! You did an awesome job with this theme!

  3. This is unique! So far, "playing" with Photoshop for me is akin to pulling out my fingernails. I still revert to my old familiar Digital Image Pro. Love your work here!

  4. Hi Kristen,
    I am so sorry to be so late getting over here and back to soartful. Its just been one of those weeks :( My connection has been unstable online and also been babysitting more than usual so forces combined ... i ws held up.
    Never mind, here now lol. Thanks for asking about Adam, he is doing ok but finding it hard to cope and depression setting in. Its so hard and i can only do so much to help . I get frustrated. Anyway I have Hayden here today ( adams son who is 3 ) and hoping it will give his mum and dad some respite.
    I adore what you did with this one Kristen. Its a definite WOW as Tacey said. I love all the elements which went into this creation and made it such a fun one to look at . What an amazing artist you are my friend. Thanks so much for doing the challenges .. i love to see such excellent results.
    Well best get going and post it up on soartful
    Hugs and happy weekend
