This week was … not interesting and fun. When I woke up Thursday morning I started to feel bad, the it got worse and I started to have fever and my throat was sore. I don’t know how I managed to get a cold. I waited for a few days, I thought it was gonna go away by itself. I took only paracetamol and some medicines for my throat. But it didn’t, so I started taking antibiotics. Now I feel a little better but it still didn’t get away. I hope it goes soon, cause this week I was supposed to be studying, but I couldn’t because I was not feeling well.
Friday I have my first driving class. It was so nice but scary. I am scared that I would hit someone’s car or that I am going on the other side of the road, but at least I can drive straight. If I position the car it’s okay, I can do it. I am happy with myself after my first driving session, but I hope I will get better at it and next time I will remember that the instructor is right next to me and nothing will happen so I won’t be so tense anymore.
After my driving class I went to pick up a guitar. I found a really cheap one online and I though I will buy it. I always wanted to learn how to play it, but I am not so optimistic. It’s really hard. Also, I managed to break one string. Only after a day. I am unbelievable I know. I will wait until my exam finish and then I will buy another strings and maybe ask for some help at the beginning. I have a few friends who know how to play it, so maybe it will be better if somebody teaches me first. If I don’t manage to learn, at least the guitar is an amazing decoration for my apartment *laughing*.
In this week I also tried to practice my graphic skills a little bit and tried to update the website. I didn’t do much, because at the same time I had some store orders I had to complete. But here it.
I made this photo manipulation using only textures. I love it. I used it as a phone wallpaper. (click on the image to see full size)
I made for you a double exposure tutorial which turned out very beautiful (I am not sure I made a good choice of photos, but you can do a lot better, I am sure) – click on the image to see the full tutorial. Also let me know if you try to do it.
As store orders I had two header images, but the person who ordered them wanted me to wait until I post them in the portfolio, one WordPress theme and 5 88×31 buttons. You can see them on my portfolio page:
And the last thing I had to do was to change the colors of a theme I made. I worked a bit on this because the theme is all images. Pim asked me if I could make it gold/brown to fit with the header image I made her. It was not problem for me. This is how it turned out. Click on the image to see the full size.
I am happy with the work I made, but I am happier when the people who order from me like the designs. It gives me a special feeling. I made a little work on the resources pages too I added 4 photoshop actions, 8 textures, 1 brushes pack, a self confidence article and I finally managed to make the about page. So go check them out. I hope they are useful for you. Also I added a chat box because my of my visitors are sending me emails because I don’t have a cbox. So we can chat now <3 Have a nice day and talk to you soon. Thank you Pim for advertising my webstore in your blog. You are so kind for doing that.
