Hope you guys are having a great week so far. In case you missed my BIG announcement earlier, I have officially launched my own business as a Graphic Designer. Amplified Designsis now open for business and I couldn’t be more excited. And what makes it even more exciting, is the fact that I’m giving away the prize this week for the Edit Me Challenge with Branson @ Reflections of Something. So make sure you go and enter the challenge for a chance to win one of the following prizes:
40% off a Blogger or WordPress Custom Design package
And even though I can’t win the prize for this week, I still wanted to enter and edit the photo. Here is the before and after:
I knew when I saw this photo, that I wanted it to have a vintage feel to it. That’s the type of photo I was envisioning. But, when I saw all of the other edits that had already been entered, and saw that everyone seemed to have had the same vision of this shot (which isn’t a bad thing…it just means that the photographer captured something that everyone can identify and connect with), I wanted to do something a tiny bit different.
I used a combination of actions here. Including the Mini-Fusion Action from MCP, Paint the Moon’s Urban Delight, and The Pioneer Woman’s Heartland Action. I also used a combination of textures from Kim Klassen. Make sure you head over to Branson’s and enter your shot for a chance to win my prize! And don’t forget to check out my new design website.
