Look what I learned today!

Update:

I found a new burlap picture and used that instead. I like it much better then the first burlap I used. The other one was too bumpy or something.

Sometimes browsing blogs can be really handy. For instance, I'm always looking for new things to do with my photoshop. I love the program, but I don't have the time or money to buy a tutorial book, etc. However, the author of one of my favorite blogs posted this tonight. Its a tutorial on making photos look "antique".



My first attempt, with using a burlap sack as the "antiquing" went okay. Better then I expected, though.

Antiqued








My second attempt was using a scratched steel as the "antiquing". I like the results a lot better.

Antiqued






Here E has always thought that my internet time was worthless. Phoey.

I love the pictures. I really like the one you antiqued with the scratched steel.

I like the one with the scratched steel. I've never done that with a photo so I will have to go read that tutorial.

What version of photoshop do you have. I have a bunch of old tutorial books around here and if I have one that will help with your version I will be happy to pass it along to you.

My DH is very proficient with PS...I keep meaning to have him teach me some cool tricks.

Very cool. You did a nice job!

That is so cute. They really do look antique....I think you should frame these and then add little one and have an old frame displaying their precious faces.
