Friday was a PD Day around here so I took the kids to the beach with a friend. It wasn't a typical beach day, a little cooler than I would like, but that never phases a child! Emma, Mark, Nathan and Cole all had a GREAT time! I was so pleased that Cole didn't love the water. I envisioned the trip being me in the water stopping him from going too far for the entire day. But ankle deep made him happy (and me too!!!) My goal while at the beach was to play with my 50mm lens. I love this little lens...it's perfect for individual shots. I didn't realize that this lens could go to a 1.8 (for you camera geeks like myself out there you'll get what I mean...I'm just learning though:) ANYHOW, after researching my lens I knew I had to play. So, you'll be bored of my photos I'm sure, but this is one I took of Cole (love the butt shots:). I altered the photo in iPhoto just to "antique" the photo (level 1) and beyond that it's a simple MDS page.
I used a vintage overlay on the photo in Early Espresso and altered the opacity to 40%. The LOVE is done using the font 2 peas gift and the "you" is done using Scriptina. I added the Frames with Love Decorative One stamp in the bottom left corner and altered the opacity. The top right uses the digital tape download and a few antique brads. It truly is a QUICK page.
Thanks for stopping by today! I may be back this afternoon:)
