~Brushmania~

 I am now in the throes of ~Brushmaina~ and it all started when I downloaded Google Chrome a couple of weeks ago and  I customized Google Chrome as  my  home page. I picked the above because
 I have always loved fire and also love bright colors.  I knew they did this heart with brushes, but HOW?

SOOOOOO dear readers, I wanted to DO THIS!
I opened PhotoShop and used the smoke brush to create the above, and managed to create the below heart.
 YES! I do know it looks nothing like the one at the top, BUT  I did it kinda sorta. SOOOOO
 I drove over to visit my friend Rich and said I want to see if your CS5 is better than my PS 7
I ended up with THIS, if you look hard you can see it was almost a heart

 Then Rich said look it looks like a face at the top, so I created eyes by using the cookie cutter. All of this is new to me.
Insert MadSnapper Trivia: As a child my mother kept me happy with crayons, paints, color books, blank pads of paper, scissors, glue and magazines to cut pictures out of.   I spent hours coloring, painting, cutting and pasting. So this spooky creature is what I created doing the same thing in PS
 I thought, how did someone create that green smoke brush I used. Watched a video on YouTube and below is a Brush of Woody Woodpecker that I drew and a cut out of Jake. now they are brushes and i can stamp to my hearts content. YES. iI know both are useless but I did MAKE THEM

The first one is my favorite of all, it is AWESOME!!! But all of them are so cool!!!! Now what does this have to do with Chrome, because I have Chrome. Do they somehow have other blog backgrounds? Are you going to use it as your browser?

Glad there are creative people in the world. Aren't you glad that there are people like me who appreciate the awesomeness of creative people like you and are totally blown away by the stuff you think up and then DO it!

And I love that your fun shines through!
