The next thing I was going to cover was extraction, but you all do fine on those so we move to the next lesson, the classic siggy style. Here are some examples:










(top 5 by me, bottom 5 by princesskate.)

As you can see this is a clean look, not cluttered. You need at least 2 photos for your siggy, please no animation. I gave you two different styles of this, the boxed in and non-boxed in looks. If you need tutorials on how to do things let me know, I'm not posting any now because we will go over a lot of those things later. Also, the examples are to give you ideas and inspiration, please, do not directly copy any of them. We will have a copycat challenge the week after next.

Post your original siggy here and then go to the Makers Lounge for CC. Once you are happy with your siggy place your final one here by Sept. 15 noon Central time US. (to get an idea of time difference it is currently 4:34 pm here)

No pictures need to be approved this time!

Hi Ladies,

I won't be in this one as I won't have access to PS for the next week...I'll still do the lesson though and do the next challenge.

Good Luck

Course I don't mind. I figured you would anyway since you never won enough for me to kick you out.
