Songs I'm Liking Right Now

Obsessed!

I've been so obsessed with photo editing lately. I can barely take my coat off before putting the computer on. Tom will be talking and I'll start touching keys on the computer. He will say, I hear the keys moving, you know. And then we will laugh.

I love distressing photos. Making them look torn and worn and old. Like they have experienced being held by different people. At different times. Like they have wisdom. Or they hold the knowledge of the past. I am slowly gravitating to imperfection. Because I feel so imperfect.

How about you? Has the winter changed your thinking?

I know JUST what you mean. I love a plug-in program called Nik filters for Photoshop. Fantastic stuff. Glamour glow is my favorite, but have learned lately to use these new Graphic Authority backgrounds.

I sometimes can't even LOOK at Photoshop because I'm sick of designing albums, but then other days....

Have fun!

I really like what you are doing with the photos! I have been learning photoshop, little by little.
Winter has changed my thoughts, too. I always feel imperfect, this year...at this time...especially. I guess I am super critical of myself. Lots of life changes and high hopes for the months to come!
