Blue Lady

Day before yesterday was my anniversary. My husband gave me a dozen red roses with one white orchid. So the picture above is one of the roses I received from him over the weekend. There is a cute little story that goes with this picture. You might want to read it here--very embarrassing!!

Here is the original photo:

I placed 1 layer of Granny's cupboard, soft light at 100%

1 layer of the dream sample layer at multiply, 75%

added the text layers

Made a levels adjustment layer
brightness adjusted to +32
contrast to +13

I also made a levels adjustment enhancing the whites in the picture--

flattened layers

I am joining Kim Klassen over at her blogsite today.

Beautiful Diana! You're way ahead of my with photo editing. This all sounds like a foreign language to me. One of these days I will learn what a layer is!

You are amazing! (and inspiring!) After looking at your stunning photo I watched a tutorial over at Kim's...very helpful. i think i could get addicted. I'm recovering from a slight hand injury...a bit more time on my hands to play with photoshop than i had hoped! typing is a bit rought going! (-;

Thanks for all your sweet comments! And yes, Anita, it is addictive but so much fun--

Stephani, your work is so incredible, you do not need "layers" but it is not nearly as hard as it sounds--And Kim is such a great teacher--she really makes difficult things so simple--
