And another Photoshop manipulation....
This one is inspired by the iTunes giftcard artwork style, grungy, music themed, etc...
Tell me what you think?

I've been playing around with Photoshop lately (finally got to start using it. yay!!!), and I LOVE it!

Just wanted to share a "Fantasy Eyes" photo that I did today, practicing new tools and techniques :o)

Hello everyone!

I found an amazing choker inspired by the one Neytiri wore in James Cameron's Avatar, and I wanted to share!

Necklace is made by mandalarain on

"This choker is crafted of Premium quality brown hemp, Lampwork beads, and a mother of pearl bead.

Made to order in your choice of length.
You may also choose forest green, natural light brown, or dark blue hemp instead of brown if you prefer.

This may also been done in a spiral knot pattern if you prefer.

Thanks for looking! "

This is absolutely gorgeous, and well worth a look by any Avatar fans out there :o)

Now for the
fun part! When I requested permission to feature this, she made a very generous offer. If 5 people purchase this necklace from her, and let her know that they come from my Blog, I get one free! Wouldn't that be awesome?

For anyone who does that and lets me know, I am offering a 15% discount on any purchase from StarGazingWoodElf, good through March 9, 2010 :o)

Thanks for reading, and have a fantastic day!

Hello everyone!

It has been so terribly long since I updated here, and I feel so bad :o(
We've been dealing with some internet problems, but everything should be perfect now, and maybe I can get my act and my blog back together, lol.

Well...... I saw James Cameron's Avatar for the first time about 2 weeks ago, and I was blown away. I rarely, if ever, feel so strongly connected to storyline and characters as I did while watching this amazing movie. I can't get it out of my head! To all the critics out there dissing this amazing movie: OH MY GOODNESS!!! Have you no heart? It's freakin' awesome!

So.... LOL....anyways.....

I simply HAD to manipulate a picture of myself to represent my Na'Vi Avatar, because someday I'm going to live on Pandora..... Seriously.

This is rough, as I'm not completely finished with it. I JUST got photoshop about 3 days ago, and this is my first manipulation. I'm having so much fun!

Like my new image? This super-cool new photo-manipulation avatar was created for me by Chelsea from ChantiqueCouture on Etsy.

She is SO sweet and nice to work with, and I love my picture!
If you like photo-manipulations and are interested in getting your own fantasy style created, check out the Forest Elf listing:


This is the newest in a series of photo-manipulations to my own photos that I have been playing around with. I thought it turned out pretty cool, though I wish I'd had a better picture of myself to work with.....


This was done using Paint Shop Pro 7. I know, know, I need to move on to Photoshop; I'm working on it! But PSP7 did the job on this image :o)

The background is a stock image by pelleron-stock on DeviantArt, so all credit goes there: Pelleron-Stock

The overlaying texture is from valkiria-stock on DeviantArt, so all credit there:

And the model is Me! LOL, enjoy :o)
