Shattered Heart

I've discovered an Online University (is what I call it) where I'm learning how to use Photoshop Elements more effectively.  This site was recently introduced to me by Jack Meagher a fellow member of the Bellingen Arts Council.  I'm so glad that he told me about it 'cause now I can finally work out how to use this software better.
The site is called and there are so many videos to watch on "how-to's".  It's really awesome.  As you can see was playing around with layers and gave this PMC Heart, that I made awhile back... quite a spirital look.  I'm gonna keep playing around with it in the next few days.
