When I Was Very Little... Photo Art Friday 17-18 August

As soon as I saw this prompt, I knew the photograph I wanted to play with. I sort of let it sit and wait, though, since I'm taking Kim Klassen's Skinny-Mini E-Course and was hoping I'd figure out how to use some texture with it.

Well, I didn't, yet, but I DID figure out how to navigate a wee bit in PSE8, so you won't catch me complaining about how I DID end up playing with this photo.

It was taken in June of 2005, when Gracie had only been with me a few weeks. Hard to BElieve my girl was once THAT tiny, but I love the reminder of those early days and her making herself right at home in that little basket...

Gracie in the Basket...June 2005

I did crop it some and did some other stuff I can't completely recall just Now, though I am happy I discovered how all those steps you all share are kept track of in PSE8...

I am hopeful when Bonnie and PAF are back in September I'll have both oars in the water!!

Such a gorgeous girl and a wonderful story :) keep going with the textures, I have some freebies and tuts if you're interested :) hope we see more of Gracie soon!

Gracie is so sweet!!! I know that by now she probably is way bigger, but it's nice to look at those pictures when they were little (just like our children).
Kim's class is great, and if you have the time I woudl also recommend her essentials class. I took both, and I learned so much from her. She and Bonnie are my favorite photo people in blogland.

SO nice to meet you and Gracie- the perfect container for sure! What a creative little one. I wonder how big she is now.

Love Little Gracie and I think you did a fine job of editing. I haven't taken any of Kim's classes ... I guess I haven't figured out how it works. I wish you well and know you will learn a lot. See you in September.

Currie, I remember when I was where you are!! It has been a fun journey and the best part is I don't think learning new things in photo editing will ever end..there's always something new. Cute photo of your adorable dog.

Again Gracie was a darling little puppy. I like the "Glow" you've given her in this edit. It's very sweet.

Bonnie said...

Love her sweet chin resting of the edge of the container. Your edit makes it look like a greeting card, Currie. Thanks so much for sharing your artwork with PAF.
