    Oh my goodness, Julieanne!!! Thanks so much ~ this is brilliant!!! I alway learn something new from you!

    I’ve been taking lots of photos of the Pink Trees in my neighborhood over the past couple of weeks and I needed a new processing idea to share on my sadly neglected blog :~)

    I keep hoping you will visit Portland, OR one of these days so I can meet you in person :~)

    Hi, there! I always like your videos! This one is no exception. Well done!
    I have a question, if you don’t mind. Did you use the ‘Vector mask’ because the ‘Shape Tool’ is vector? Could you have used a Layer Mask? Would you explain the difference, please?
    I am ever grateful!
