Tricks and Treats from my Computer

I appreciate my computer!  I can Google for inspiration and manipulate images which saves me money.  I thought it would be fun to show some photo adjusting magic today.

This is the original image I purchase years ago but the tan, black and orange frame I found at a garage sale wouldn’t match.

My photo software has an option to turn the image black and white.  I also adjusted the shadows and contrast for the final image which matched the garage sale frame perfectly.

I also make my own images for faces.  Recently I posted a photo of Cathy, owner of Sunrose Gallery and me.

I have a software program called FastStone Image Viewer and it has effects that turns a photo into an Oil Painting.

Now I can use our images on a doll face.  When the faces are printed at 1 inch circles they are realistic.

Now I can Mod Podge it to a round wood ball for a doll face!

Sure do appreciate my computer, my hot glue gun, and all my pretty glitter!
