Creative License Friday #7

This beautiful flower-image is captured by Gail @ Louisiana Belle -
I admire the a lovely light / bokeh; meaning the circles of light in the middle of the photo!

The photo took me to an afternoon tea party in  an romantic English garden in the early 1900s ...
 I wanted to create a vintage-style photo, bringing a feeling of looking back to a nostalgic memory.

I added extra color / saturation to the photo, then I desaturated it totally, brushing the flowers so the color came back on them. Thereafter I added an old vintage-brown and red in Pixrl, and a Craquelure Cavalier texture from French Kiss, together with a signature stamp.


 for hosting this creative meme!

    1. Thank you ... I enjoyed the tour to the beach admiring your photos - you brought the warm summer memories on my mind :)

  2. You've really changed the entire aura of this image and transported me back in time! I'm, especially, attracted to the bokeh in the background and the haziness below it. Very nice!! Nina...thanks so much for playing in the Artist Box with us each week. I love seeing your creative edits!

    1. Thank you and likewise, Jill! I'd love to learn your way of combining your fonts in the quotes - you have great eye to create beauty around you - to the tiny details!

    2. Thank you, Nina! Do you use Photoshop? If so, it's pretty easy to switch fonts within a quote. I have done it also in Picasa, but it takes more time. It really boils down to which editing program you use. If you have any questions, just ask me and I'll try to help.

  3. Oh, I love the romantic feel you gave to my photo. Wonderful edit, Nina! Thanks for playing with it. :)

  4. Thank you Gail - your photo is very special, the broken in it is so amazing!
