Sorry for the image spam. Finally got the problem figured out, I think.*
A quick sketch with folk art influences on my graphics tablet. I really need to practice with the tablet some more because I have an idea to update my journal look using line drawings. Still not easy for me to master the pen, but I'll get there.
(* I'm using photoshop elements and I didn't flatten the image before trying to upload it. Back when I had the full Photoshop version, any time I saved to jpeg, it would automatically merge the layers, but I guess Elements doesn't do that...)
