Phototshop is my favorite

Hi there!
I just popped in to post a picture, one of my favorites.
The original photo is not so spectacular, but I just love the result I obtained in Photoshop.
I like the texture and I love the hint of blue on the right.

Come closer, I'm gonna tell ya a secret: I'm not sure I could do this again!
I definitely have to name my layers when I work in Photoshop.

see ya!

OOB - Out Of Bounds

Have I told you that I'm like a child? I want everything I see!
The last interesting thing I saw was OOB, that is out of bounds photos made in Photoshop. And of course I had to give this a try, too.
So here it is, my first... well, actually second try on this PS effect:
[my first was a real success, too. but it was a kind of family photo, and as you might have noticed, I don't make a habit of posting faces/portraits/people.]
I love this little fellow! Took this picture last year. Some two years ago we had many little leaf frogs in our garden. Then, I don't know what happened and the following year I only saw 2 or 3... So sad... I miss them.

My first try at Eco Paint

I've recently discovered eco painting on different cloth and also on paper and I am totally amazed by this process!
Well, as you can imagine, I had to try this our. Although - again!!! - my "tools" were scarce.
But first let me show you the end result:
I am quite pleased with it. My cloth was the back pocket from a pair of trousers.  I guess that it have looked better if I had a white piece of cloth.
Second, I didn't have any leaves so I used onion skins, red cabbage and some small fir branches.  You can see the fir in this close-up. O, and I love that alien face right in the middle!!!
And because I love rust, I also added some wire, two small coins and copper wire. I thought the copper wire would make some beautiful bluish impression, but it didn't... and nor did the coins.
Anyhow, I had some beautiful rust made by the wire - it was a clasp I made some time ago for a necklace - and by the wire I used to tie around the cloth.
All in all it came out quite well... in my opinion. Now I'm thinking of using it to make the front cover of a journal.

I'll keep you updated!

See ya!

The Other Me...

Well, here is the other me... a little bit deviant...
We went for a hike last week and... well... I found a cow!
It was not a living one, just the... you know... bones.
Here are two pictures of it. I used the vintage frames from The CoffeeShop Blog, go over there and you will find tons of tutorials, free stuff like frames, PS actions, storyboards and lot more.

Ha-ha! Do you know what these are??? The teeth! I like their shape, all those lines and curves and circles.

I took home some teeth and the two horns! I don't have a picture of the horns yet, they are out in the garden, on two poles. I would like to do something with them, don't really know what, maybe try carving or something.

Have a nice week!

See ya!

HAPPY 2013!

Well, this is 2013! I spent the last day of the last year out in the nature. We went for a hike and I just want to share some "postcards", snapshots I took.
The lake was frozen and frost was everywhere on the trees, leaves, berries. It was just fairy!
And here is my new cover photo on Facebook:

Have a great 2013!

See ya!
