The Old Underwood for Touch Up Tuesday

IMG_5174

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
