Senior Invitations...

I finally created a graduation invitation for my brother that we both actually like. I created a couple of other ones, but my brother and I did not like them. So I went back to square one, this is the first time I have ever created any kind of postcard type deal. It was fun! Hopefully I will get to do some more and it will become a little easier to do! Hope ya like!

This is a picture of the Bishop family. I took this picture and placed some texture on it, and then put a boarder around it. I used a Polaroid Transfer  for my border. For those who do not know what a Polaroid transfer is, or the method: You use a day lab, that uses Polaroid film. You put film, colored slides, or draw images and print your image on the Polaroid film. Then you pull the film apart and place the ink part onto watercolor paper, that has been soaked in water and then you squeegee the paper out. You use a roller to apply pressure to the film. Then lift and you have a cool vintage print, and each print turns out different.

This is my final print!

This is the transfer: (this one did not turn out right, so I scanned it in photoshop and used it for texture and a boarder.

Class Work...

This is some art work I am working on in class. We are supposed to come up with our own personal symbols, things that are important to us. We have to find a way to represent that symbol using photography. Here is the before and where I am at now. Just wanted to share it!

The Bishop Family sneak peek...

I went to Gaffney, SC to see my family over the weekend. I took some pictures of my cousins while I was there. We went to the Bishop's friends house to take pictures, it was beautiful there! The kids had a lot of fun playing around. I want to thank them for letting me take photo's, it allows me to practice. I hope you enjoy, there will be more soon to come!

      This is one of my favorite's, I think it is so funny!!

The whole gang's here!!

Isn't she just too cute?

I Got In!!

Good News! The artwork that I submitted into the Kinston Arts Council Show got in, all three pieces. I am so excited, the show is this Thursday. Maybe I have a good chance of winning!! I will keep you posted...

What A Wonderful Weekend!

I went on a trip over the weekend to visit my aunt in Gaffney, SC. I took some of the family with me. My little brother tagged along, which was great because he usually does not want to hangout with me, he is a teenager. We went to church with my aunt. I really had to fight the devil that morning because I just wanted to sleep, but I got up. I got my brother to go with us. We had an awesome worship, and my brother accepted the Lord into his heart! How wonderful!!!

More of "Big Sis" and "Lil Sis"....

I'm still working on Abby and Alyssa's photo's in my spare time, between all of my classes and homework. These two are just to cute, I just want to eat them up!! Hopefully I will make it through all the images before long and have them all edited. 

Just for Fun!!

These are some pic's I took of Kaitlyn over the summer. This is some of my earlier work, as you can see. I think I have come a long way from this. The more pic's you take the better you get. I was bored today so I was messing around in photoshop with these pictures, trying some different techniques, here's what I got! I used some split toning, of course it works differently on different pictures. I sharpened her eyes, to make them stand out. I also put a cool blue tone on top.
