a dreamy blanket of light tutorial.
Hello Sunshine. How are you?
Today I have a quick little 'blanket of dreamy light' photoshop/elements tutorial for you. Check out the before and after effect above and the screencast lesson down below.
There's nothing more lovely than a dreamy blanket of soft light..... Is there? :)
Before we dive in... thank you for ALL the kindness you so generously sprinkled in the comments and via email after Friday's post. I am so very grateful.
My weekend was really nice. John took me out for dinner and a movie on Friday. We went to my favourite place, Lady of the Lake... it's has the loveliest Café connected to the shop. Then we saw the move Silver Linings Playbook. Bradley Cooper was fantastic. I love that this film is shedding some much needed ight on mental illness..... It had a perfect mix of happy and sad...with many pieces I could relate to. Saturday, we went out for breakfast. Then John spent the rest of the day setting up my new space. Oh my gosh, more on that soon. Burst. Sunday John was away on calls most of the day....so I had lots of time to just be and do whatever. I took the day off from work and watched several episodes of Parenthood. I'm watching it from the beginning on Netflix. I seriously love that show.
Anyhow, here I am....feeling much better about life.... Hmm, it's amazing how things can shift. I think the act of putting it out there was a good thing. Thank you all.. always.
Before we dive into the tutorial... just a few quick things.
One. This week's Texture Tuesday theme is the Downton Collection... come link up your Downton I collection photos..... loving all the Downton II images in the extra link up from last week! Keep 'em coming. I'm thinking I might do a Downton feature post and share some of the images that you all have created with the collection. :)
Two. If you missed the Downton textures, check your email. I sent them out to the list last week.... If you are new to my site, be sure to join the Texture List and begin receiving freebies, including the Downton set, right away.
Three. Test Kitchen members be sure to pop in and grab the Baker's Dozen collection. It's only available for the month of February.
Okie doke... please take a moment to check out today's easy-peasy dreamy light tutorial below. (if you are reading this by email you will have to pop into the site to view the video)
See you tomorrow for Texture Tuesday....
Later this week I will be back with the Picture Process eCourse details.
as always... so much gratitude,
p.s. Coming soon....I will shed a little light on photoshop cs6. I get many emails asking if it's worth the upgrade.... I can't say one way or the other, but I'm happy to share some of the features I adore most about it.
