Hello my friends !
I had another nice surprise last week when Crabtree & Evelyn’s public relations and marketing specialist in Connecticut sent me an e-mail to thank me for a post I made featuring their products. She said their products blended beautifully well with my photos and she really liked that post. How cool is that ? :) I’m glad my post could reach her. The same day, I had 13 views on this post, probably other employees from the same office. It’s very kind of her to have sent me this e-mail, Thank you !
When I finish a post, most of the time I don’t know what I’m going to show and talk about in the next. I have a few ideas I save in case I really don’t know what to post, but surprisingly something always comes up to spark my interest or creativity and that’s when the inspiration begins. It could be something I saw on TV or the internet, heard on the radio, and sometimes it can be just a glimpse of an image I saw. When that happens it’s as if all my creativity is suddenly awakened and from there I can start working on a new post. Two weeks ago I received an interesting e-mail from my aunt about some vintage 1930 catalog images from Montgomery Ward.
Looking at these images I had the idea of creating vintage style photos. I had much fun taking these photos and creating collages. Also, I finally learnt to work with layers and textures with my photo editor Corel Paint Shop Pro X4. I must admit I was intimidated at first , layers seemed so complicated to me, but it turned out to be not so complicated at all and now I really love working with them. I like to give an artistic touch to some of my photos and for these one I used textures from Kim Klassen and Sarah Gardner.
I hope you enjoyed these photos, and until inspiration strikes again for my next post I’m wishing you a nice sunny week !
