The awesome internet (week 48)

21 November 2011

Maybe some of my readers missed the awesome internet last week (but I doubt that as I havent heared anybody cry or something), but last week it showed that it wasn't easy to write this blog on a weekly base. Last week I had exaclty two pages in my list of things I wanted to show (busy week at work), and on second thoughts one of them wasn't good enough so I was left with a total of one website I wanted to show. I decided to safe that one for next week and skip a week.

I'll do my best to prevent this from happening again!



Stitched text effect Tutorial



Last week I stumbled (yes, I use StumbleUpon) over this list of photoshop tutorials, as there are many of these on the internet, and one of the thumbnails caught my attention. I haven't had the time to try this one out, but I thought the effect looked só nice I had to share it.
