Oh, the sweet smell of success.  I've been so hard at work every day and most of it very frustrating.  
Fortunately Exercise 3 was somewhat easy to do.  So now I have time to go back to Exercise 1 and 2 and attempt them once again.  I'm still not on auto pilot for making custom brushes.  It's not creating the brush that's hard, it's the confusion on saving them.  There's just so much to learn and not enough time.  When did I ever have time to have a career?  I can't answer that.
Below is the original of a photo and then the second photo combines another image of a vintage postcard.

Hi Marilyn! Your comment on my blog was one of the nicest I've received. I'm so glad it made you feel like that! Yes, I did make my own blog banner with photos I took mostly in my courtyard. I really haven't worked too hard on the PS because I get so frustrated and stop, so it's my own fault. I'm a very impatient person and want it to happen right now. I love the quote on your blog it says it all. I will keep trying! My husband can just read something and "pick it up" so he said he would help me go through everything again. Hope to chat with you again! Rebecca
