Post Card, A Love Story - My Creative Sketch - August Challenge

 The latest sketch for My Creative Sketches has just been released for August, you can find all the details 'HERE'.  I loved this sketch by Liz Chidester, and had fun interpreting the sketch in my own way.  I used the August, Limited Edition Kit, from My Creative Scrapbook.  You can find all kit information and products 'HERE'....

What an amazing kit it was to work with this month, including Kaisercraft's 'One This Day' paper collection, Prima Marketing Flowers, Pink Paislee Artisan Elements, Glitz Cardstock Stickers, Doodlebug Alpha's, Laces, Ribbons and More. 

The photograph is one of 'me' as a baby, with my Mum.   The postcard area is hidden journaling, and I journaled about my Mum's thoughts on her first born child... loved Mum's thoughts, words... precious plus.

Another fabulous photo, do you have to photoshop any to make them so clear? I have many small and faded pics and I can improve them sometimes but not others???

Sandie Edwards said...

Hi Sandra, some of my older vintage images I do Photoshop in 'Elements' to remove scratches, blemishes, and colour that had faded. Though, sometimes, I leave them as they are, as adds to the character of the photographs. Elements is very good for photo restoration.
