The Old Underwood for Touch Up Tuesday


This is a photo of the old Underwood Typewriter straight out of the Camera.

Od Underwood typewriter reworked with logo 

I wanted to make the whole photo look antiqued so I applied some of the techniques that I learned in Kim Klassen Cafe classes.   I first desaturated the whole photo and then applied KK textures light paper 1 and light paper 3 playing around with the various blending modes.  I am beginning to be a little braver playing around with these.   I added a logo on the bottom.    I think I achieved what I set out to do.    I was happy with it.

I am joining Touch Up Tuesday with Paper Heart Camera.   Have a great day.  Valerie

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
