The sun was shining in the bedroom window the other morning, casting the most beautiful shadows across the bed (and Baby).
I love this photo of Baby sitting on the nightstand at the foot of the bed. I thought it would be a perfect photo to "play" with. Claudia posted a great tutorial of PicMonkey the other day and it looked like so much fun that I had to give it a go.
I absolutely love the results! I softened the image, darkened the edges, and framed it. I may have to get a real frame for this photo!
Here's another photo with the sun creating beautiful shadows.
And here's the same photo using HDR, darkened edges, rounded corners, and again a frame.
By now Baby had moved to the bed, totally enjoying the warm sun shining through the window.
And here's the same photo after adding Yester-Color, darkening the edges (again), and using the Polaroid frame with text. I think I'm totally addicted to PicMonkey now!
Would you just look at how beat up the finish is on our poor bedroom furniture? We've had this set since 1989 and my nightstand has been the springboard to the bed for all of the beautiful kitties we've owned since then (it's a VERY high bed). Clearly their claws have done a number over the years. It's a good thing I'm into old, rustic, and distressed!
Clearly Baby doesn't seem to be concerned about the marks she and her predecessors have left on the nightstand. She knows some of those marks are also from puppy paws over the years, trying to see which kitties are snoozing in the bed.
Baby looks lost in though in this photo. I do hope she's not feeling bad about the furniture after all. Don't worry about it, Baby. I'm not.
A final photo of the gorgeous shadows on the bed... Happy (almost) spring, everyone!
