Picture this

The grok god came over Saturday and helped me with fine-tuning the image I need to submit as the final hurdle for participating in Portland Open Studios. I say "helped me," but really he did all the work. I took notes on all the Photoshop tricks and tried not to ask too many pesky questions.

It took a few hours, and here's the result:

BTW, the studio will be open, and I'll be bookbinding, October 11 and 12 and 18 and 19, so that's a big green light for all the projects I planned to start during maternity leave.

I went ahead and bought eight pieces of bookboard Friday to get things rolling, receiving a nice deep bookboard cut on my hand in the process. If that's the injury of the season (and there's always got to be one), I'll take it.
