This is a photo i took back in the autumn. As I said before I've been playing around in photoshop and wanted to see if I could turn an otherwise slightly dull photo into something a little more interesting. I think it has a very dreamy quality to it which is what I wanted to achieve. I love the light this time of year and wanted to see if I could replicate that with a little photoshop magic.

I have just finished making these ready to post to a few friends. I've been looking for some small knitting projects which would push me to learn/ understand more about knitting patterns. I was looking for something that wasn't very complicated or very long so I didn't get confused and bored. Mission accomplished with these babies. I was even able to knit the hearts without looking at the pattern after the third one! Plus they are really cute which doesn't hurt.

I recently went on a photoshop course and now I have to admit I'm addicted. I've been using photoshop for years but I'm pretty much self taught. This has led to some bad habits of doing things the long/ wrong way round!
However, I am now going to redeem myself by trying to learn as much as possible. I've got myself a great book and found pleanty of tutorials on line and so it is now my mission to learn as much as possible.
I've wanted to play with tilt shifting for a while now and it was a lot easier then I thought. Check out this tutorial here . I found it very easy to follow and I'm quite happy with my first attempt.
Here is the original for you to compare.
