Before and After Floral ...

Here's my set-up. My Trader Joe's $3.99 ranunculus in an el-cheapo mason jar with glue-y residue remaining. Set up next to my computer, cuz that makes me insanely cheerful.

Here's the SOOC:

And the "after":

I used Florabella's Vintage Teal Papers.
1. VT15 soft light mode 100%
2. VT16 multiply mode 20%, texture erased of flowers

And finished with Totally Rad Action's Select o Sharp action, just on flowers to make them pop out.

Oh my goodness. I love the jar.
And the glue.
And the flowers!
And you : )
Oh my gosh! I just made a poem.
I like the straight out of the camera the best because I am boring : )

Florabella textures makes me happy...as does your beautiful shot...both before and after :)

This is why you rock, Susan. You are willing to put forth effort to make awesome better. I would be willing to work to make good great, but you take it up several notches from there. You are a true artist, and you make me smile all the time.

I think I prefer the before! So lovely straight out of the camera!

Oh my...I just tried to do some stuff with Lightroom today, which I'm so far behind the times, right? But, man do I have my work cut out for me! The pictures looked worse after than before! haha
Your flowers are so lovely!

I just love your before shot, Susan! Your after shot is nice, too, but there's just something about that SOOC photo that calls to me. =)

And I'll be the one that says I like them both equally, because I do!

Cathy said...

Wow, that's neat. I love the photo either way, but it really looks like a work of art in the after pic.

This is way too early to take such pretty pictures! :)
