when the bug bites…
I intended to sew tonight. It’s supposed to get warmer this weekend so pretty boy may need a new spring outfit for church, but instead I was inspired to play with a photo I recently took. I’m bad about that – jumping from one thing to the next, but don’t you think if the creative bug bites you should bite back? I do too! In my case, it might not bite again for a while. Hopefully, I’ll get to the outfit before Sunday and he won’t have to go to church in his birthday suit; although, he’d be a cutie pie that way. J
I was inspired by Kate at Chronicles of a Country Girl to try some textures from ShadowHouse Creations. And I also added some enhancements from Scrapgirls. I love their digital papers and embellishments!
I started with this photo that you first saw in the post below.
In the next photo, I simply changed it to sepia with Photoshop Elements.
I liked that, but I just had to experiment a little further so the next photo is in chalk and charcoal.
hmmm..back to the sepia, but this time with ShadowHouse Creations’ “Crunched Old Paper” (50% opacity).
And then finally, I combined some textures from ShadowHouse Creations and Scrapgirls and this is the result.
When I was a little girl, I loved to play paper dolls. I would cut figures out of the Sears and Roebuck catalog, spread them all over my bed and play all day long. Well, now I’m just a little older, but I still like to play. Don’t you?
Okay, I think I have it out of my system now. Where’s that fabric?
