Hello dear friends !
I hope you are all doing well and enjoying the beginning of spring ! It has barely just begun here, so I still have some time to play with my photos before I have to turn my attention to the garden.
I like playing with my photos. I can spend many hours trying different effects, textures, filters and all sorts of adjustments. I work with Corel PaintShop Pro X4 and it’s amazing all the things I can do with it. In our digital age, photo editors have become the new dark-room. For these photos I decided to give them a vintage mood. I know…..vintage again ! But you know how I love everything old and shabby 🙂 All these wonderful old things, whether it be a piece of furniture, some fabrics, an heirloom dish or an old barn, they are all part of our history and heritage and that is what I wanted to celebrate. What got me started in doing these vintage mood photos is my new dining set. It is an antique reproduction and it really gives the room a sense of warmth and an inviting atmosphere.
This barn is located in St-Georges, it’s a beautiful old barn, just how I like them. The winter scenery is at our local cross-country ski trails, the old wheel is on a yard in my neighborhood and the chair and oil lamp were photographed at my boyfriend’s cousin’s sugar shack (This gives you a hint of my next post 😉 I included the before photos (always the 1st photo) so you can see the difference.
With spring and summer coming our way I won’t have as much time as now to play with my photos. My priorities will be outdoor activities like gardening, kayaking, painting the picket fence, going on bike rides and day trips and relaxing in the spa. But I love to play with my photos, so you can bet you will see more of these !
Have a fun week, and keep smiling, it’s spring !
Happy Easter !
