I have been following iheartfaces for a little while now & today (finally) I have participated in something from that blog. Fix-It-Friday #82.
I like to play around with the lighting/shadows/highlights first. Sometimes the highkey photo effect is good for this. Then the contrast is the next to change. However when I do this, occasionally it tends to leave the person looking washed out like this:
I'm absolutley not the most experienced person on photoshop (far from it). For me I find that adjusting the skin tone can bring warmth & more of a natural glow to the face.
I've been spending my time alternating between activities. Working in my Aj, crochet projects & watching Season 4 of Heroes (◕‿-)
I have been working on two pages in my Aj. I tried to create a sort of Astrological sky. Whirls of watercolours with black spray paint. I like the result & am looking forward to working on this background.
The following page is a monthly to do list. Currently I'm procrastinating about putting my 'to dos' on this list (by watching Heroes). The flowers match my blog colours hhmmmm . . . *note to self:"Try new colours".
This page is not the neatest but I needed to learn not to be so precious. I'm definitely a person who lacks motivation so to remind myself to be motivated I created this page. I have left to fill in the journaling spaces with lyrics from songs that 'get me going'!
