Shutter Love, Sweet Shot & Touch Up Tuesday


This weeks theme over at Trendy Treehouse is Overlays, thought I'd try to get back into the swing of things and post a pic I just love of my little man, he's winking at mama! :)



Added an overlay/texture adjusted the opacity to soft light at about 40%, duplicated that same layer and dropped the opacity down to about 20%.
I'm never sure on working with overlays/textures if you should erase from the face/skin in pictures, to me this one looks ok, but sometimes it just looks off, but then erasing it can look off. What are your suggestions? 

Here is my SOOC & Edit Side by Side

Fix-It Friday #83




This week we have an awesome picture from Angie Arthur to edit

I didn't have a chance to write down my edits as I went, the first is mainly adjustment layers using screen and soft light and adjusting the opacity. The second is a black white conversion along with a bit of a crop. Hope you enjoy!

Wordless Wednesday!


Just another week in our house. I worked all weekend and am looking forward to having this next off. I have made the decision to attempt to get our house in better shape, organization wise so I am tackling one big project on my weekends off and small ones during the week. I start this week going through Quinn's bedroom that he shares with his older 1/2 bothers and boy oh boy that should've been one I waited for a weekend to start! I'm still in the process of getting it back into shape and all the stuff to get rid of off the top bunk b/4 his brothers show up on friday! Hmmmm....wonder if I'll make it? lol

Wordless Wednesday!

Wordless Wednesday! 

Playing Wii!
Santa brought us a new Wii (ours died last year sometime) and it's the red anniversary edition! :)

Ok so I've had no time to get any new pics uploaded this week, does it seriously have to be such an issue for me? Maybe if I didn't work between up to 3 different computers, felt more secure bringing the camera to work with me, just plain old had more time? Maybe I'd get them done a lot sooner, but who knows, it seems to be my one nemesis! I have kept with my 365 project, its just a matter of getting them all uploaded! ;)
