The Value of Postage Stamps

Daily Draw May 19th, 2012

I decided to get myself out of the Friday night doldrums yesterday in Photoshop and had a great, whacking time creating postage stamps. I got permission from a gentleman on a reading group to use one of his photos and then did up a mock letter with a stamp etc. and generally had fun.

I stuck this one at the end of my Diary of a Broken Soul Tarot review since it uses a piece of art that I created for that.

In this one I found an old Hallmark envelope in a drawer and scanned it in to use. I think it looks quite good. The cancellation stamps are from a Photoshop brush but I could make my own customized ones. Mwuahahaha.

Friday nights have sometimes been restless for me. Years ago I used to get agitated and send out long, goofy e-mails to people on such nights, or worse, chat with people who lied about their identity in Yahoo Messenger.

Now I go steady with Photoshop on a night like that, and I think it works out better. It’s a happy sort of thing, half way between contemplation and creativity, and full of the joy of having fun alone without worrying.

      Thanks. So nice to let everything go and just fiddle with something for fun.

      The chap I made the envelope for really liked it.
