Florabella giveaway.....


I love to photograph....

now for the editing....

that's a different story.


I've been chatting with my new friend Shanna

from Florabella....

who is the amazing girl behind

The florabella collection.

Textures and actions for photoshop.





As you can see the sequence on photos above of lola...

she has three different actions going on.








That is me up above....




the first picture is before photoshop....




the second picture...




well...




after photoshop.




What a difference a little photo editing can do.




I have just started playing around with photoshop...




playing i tell you...




because it's going to take some serious time to




become a perfectionist.




Time is something i have....




just not a whole lot of extra time.


















This is Fin before {above}





not bad.










Fin after using Milk & honey II actions.







Lola and fin before {above}









now lola and fin using cosmopolitan action.













Flowers before on the left....




and after on the right...




using a vintage effect .
Anyways....if you ever wanted to dabble in photoshop....I think you will love these actions and textures.
If you leave a comment, i will be giving away one texture set and one action set.
You don't have to be a professional....really....you don't...but if you have photoshop and would love to try this...It's amazing!

Oh, my dear Kasey.
Today is the first time I 'find' your blog through some blog hopping. Where the heck I am all this time not knowing about your oh, so, amazing blog and oh, so, intoxicating photographs! Sigh.
I am about to ask my husband to show me the photoshop thingy and teach me. But I think I can have a good start and surprise him with something you tell here today.*wink.
Beside, he won't have enough patience to teach me anyway...
I am going back soon. pretty soon. Thanks for sharing all this beauty to the world.

Wow. Sometimes the world wide web feels like a little country town.
Many moons ago I stumbled across the blog of a lady who had the nmost adorable little girl and I was so hooked that I stayed up all night and read her ENTIRE archives. Her little one was adopted from China, and from that day I have had an obsession with Chinese adoption.
Im a mum of seven so I wont be adopting anytime soon but one womans wonderful words about her first adoption led me to many others and I have been hooked ever since - so I gave up reading books and magazines in exchange for HEAPS of home deco blogs and HEAPS of Chinese adoption blogs.
And now, in your one blog post, my two worlds joined. It really is a small world huh! (Um, and i'm saying that all the way from Australia!)
Have a peek at Shana's personal blog - I dare you not to fall in love with Sophie!!

Liisa said...

This is supposed to be the year I "really" learn to edit our photos.

Tate said...

Oh my goodness. Love your style!! Your creativeness and your wit. The Florabella actions and textures add that bit of muted classicness that is decidely "old world." I would love to own/try these as well. Love the depth. I just bookmarked your site. Can't wait for my next inspiration. :}

bente said...

What a great giveaway! i'm all out of Photoshop inspiration, so some textures and actions would be greatly appreciated ;)

annelise said...

As a very new, really new, blogger, I have realized that my photos are not up to par and my editing is not quite what it used to be when I started taking photos of my boys six years ago. This seems to be the excitement I need.

{beth} said...

sign me up PLEASE! What a great giveaway. I need all the help I can get.

Betsey said...
