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 Happiness is ...

For this week in Collage Obsession, Tiffany gave us this:

Happiness is…


This week, please create something based on filling in the blank below:

Happiness is ____________________________________________ .

Your answer can be as light-hearted or serious as you wish.

A little while ago, I discovered a practice that was going on at my local Starbucks. It's call "Pay Back." When you are in the Drive-thru, and there is a car behind you, you can ask the barista how much the bill is for the car behind you. If you are feeling generous, you can pay their bill. When they get to the window, they find out that their order is free. What a nice discovery for them. When mine has been Pay Backed, it really makes my day. I don't know if this is done at other Starbucks or not, but I like to think that the people of Bellevue, Nebraska, at least have a little joy added to their life every now and then.

Here is my entry for this week's Collage Obsession Challenge.

Live life fully.

Very beautifully done! What a great idea to pay back in that way.

Lovely collage!
Earl, I've heard of that before, thanks for reminding me! I should start it at my local Starbucks!

Nobody likes to clean, https://aussieessaywriter.com/ but it's a fact of life that things run smoother when given proper maintenance. The proper cleaning of furniture can prevent mold and allergy attacks. Preventing mold and other potentially dangerous filth from developing can be a long-term investment in the health and well being of your home.
