Sci-fi fun. Ice planet in orbit around a frozen world with distant sun and aurora....

It's always fun to create another world and wonder who lives there? What is it like? And who would build a castle out here...? It's hardly practical, imagine trying to heat the place. LOL!

Solar and Lunar symbol

This is one that my nine-year-old daughter designed. She asked if I could make her a symbol when I showed her the Yin-Yang one I had just done. Yippy-Skippy! I of course was thrilled to create one for her and asked her what she wanted.

She drew out the circle with the half moon with the light streaks coming out with stars in the background and we went to work.

It became a great opportunity for me to have her play with the paint-bucket and the shapes.

And then the embossing tool was employed for this effect. I love it when I can collaborate with my girls.

Yin Yang Sacred Geometry

I just love creating these in the computer and they are so simple to create. Here is the geometry behind creating the symbol.

Start with a large circle. Divide in fourths and place a circle that goes from the middle to the outer edge on the center of the line radiating out. Repeat three more times so that there is a circle in each half along the four lines. Place another circle that is the same size as the others in the middle to mark the area where the smaller circles will be placed along the North and South axis, right where the inner circle meets the lines that divided the large circle.

I then deleted the two circles on the east and west and colored the areas with the paint bucket in photoshop. This process went fast!

Then I had a ball playing with the various filters and layer styles. Try it yourself.

Fire Engine 1 Shield

I created this for one of the most incredible young men that I know. My son-in-law whose birthday is just around the corner. I think I'll put it on a t-shirt with the Fireman's Prayer on back.
