Tiny pink flower

Before:


After:


I took this photo on May 29, which was sort of last week, but it's definitely the best one I have taken since then... especially considering I haven't taken ANY pictures since then! I was actually photographing some dead flowers out on our deck, when I got distracted by the live flowers right next to me.

I am linking up with Before & After, Photo Story Friday, Simplicity Blog Hop (theme: this week), and YouCapture (theme: your best shot).



EDIT: Since The Mommy asked how I had done this effect, I am adding in a quick rundown of my edits. I don't remember specifics, such as layer opacity, but I'm pretty sure I can recall the main steps.

-levels mask
-flatten
-vintage effect (there is a great tutorial here at Shadowhouse Creations)
-add texture (also from Shadowhouse)
-soft brush to remove texture from flowers
-flatten
-watercolor frame
-flatten
-sign

Done!
