just a little update...i've been having fun this past week participating in ella publishing's boot camp. it was a week long event that consisted of different exercises in journaling, design, photo tricks, etc. i learned a lot and this is just an example of how to add a different look (vintage, urban, etc) to your photos. i love learning new tricks, especially in photoshop. i'm shooting with the camera on my phone and it takes OK photos, but i always have to end up editing them. i like this look and it's super easy to do (ok, as long as you know a little bit about photoshop. but with all those tutorials out there, it won't take long to learn a few tricks yourself!)
over the weekend we went to a sidewalk chalk art festival in our neighborhood. my stepdaughter participated along with some of her friends from art class. they made a very cool mural with trees and fairies (photo came out too dark!). i brought my daughter and her friends to see her big sister in action and they were inspired to draw as well. above is just a little bit of what they did. it was a fun day in the sun, watching artists of all ages expressing themselves.
been working a little bit on my september daily journal. more photos soon. fall has snuck up on me again! the days are getting shorter which means i gotta get my photos done earlier than usual. where does the time go? so long summer. see you next year!
