Welcome to EarlK Design!

The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Collage Obsession . . . Handwriting

For the past week, Sherry gave us:


We see fewer and fewer handwritten letters and documents these days.  Many of us don't even use our own handwriting much anymore, relying on all of our gadgets instead.  I don't think many schoolchildren in the U.S. even learn cursive writing nowadays!  But handwriting can be a beautiful form of art.  So this week, for old times' sake, please incorporate "handwriting"  into your collage somehow.

For this challenge, I used some examples of handwritten calligraphy that was done during a workshop at Ghost Ranch, Abiquiu, New Mexico, during the summer of 1982. Some of the work was done by me and some done by others attending the workshop.

Here is my collage.

That's it for now.

Live Life fully.
