No brains, no headaches

That is what a wonderful woman used to tell me when I did some boneheaded thing.  That I have migraines must prove that I'm really smart! (insert silly giggle here)
This is my creation for Sunday Postcard Art, the prompt is "Phrenology" If your not aware of that 19th century belief, it was a way to diagnose a person from the bumps on his/ her skull.  An area of overuse or disease would manifest in swelling that would push the skull out in areas.  Those bumps were then mapped according to diagrams and the diagnosis made.
I have used elements from Marcee Duggar (Maskee Large from DSP), Irene Alexeeva (Papers and banners, Altered Ego from Scrap Orchard), Suzanne C. Walker provided the frame ( Draw them In set. Her store at DSP ROCKS) the staples are from Tangie Baxter (Steamer Truck for the AJC journey.  Scrapbook Graphics) and then Phrenology brush (downloaded from The Coolest Brushes)
I should also insert here that I have been having problems using my brushes.  I have this wonderful stash of stuff and it just wouldn't work and I was so frustrated.  WendyZine (Scrapbookgraphics) turned me onto Elements Village, an internet spot for users like me.  Well, it seems that it was a button pushing problem.  I am so excited that I'll be able to use more of my brushes to create my fun stuff!
Now if anyone can direct me to a tutorial for keeping a kitten off of your keyboard (the button problem), please let me know.
