I know, two posts in one day... the thing is that my computer is at the office, and I'm mostly here on Tuesdays, so things tend to pile up a bit. I finished this one up a bit ago. It was just a quick rebellion as I've been trying to finish up all UFO's, and then one day I just wanted to do something different.
It's just one of those that accidently came together rather quickly, and I love it! I love the colors and shapes and everything all together. I think I can say this without being braggy, because there are quite a few quilts I make that I don't love. Usually they're ok, I don't often dislike them, but it's only once in a while that I LOVE one. I never really know when it will happen either!
This photo shows off the fun of adding a bit of texture through different fabric types. A bit of flannel, or linen, just makes a quilt more special and interesting. It helps give it that added dimension that gives it life!
And here's one quick little photo tip: Use PicMonkey to lighten up your photo! Now nothing's gonna fix it if it's totally blurry, but providing it has decent sharpness to it, but it's just too dark, here what you do.
Here's my original photo. Too dark, but totally fixable.
1. Go to PicMonkey
2. Click on Edit a Photo, and upload the photo you want.
3.Now choose Exposure from the left hand menu.
4.Slide the little 'Brightness' and 'Highlights' buttons to the right till you get your desired lightness.
5.Be careful not to take it too far or your photo will be washed out.
6.Then go to 'Colors' - it's just under 'Exposure'. Up the 'Saturation' just a teeny bit, and also warm the photo up a bit too by sliding the 'Temperature' button to the right.
Now save your photo and you're off!
You can play around with SO many things on PicMonkey, (including cropping your photo, which I also did here, it's a very important step!) there's piles more stuff you can do to make your pictures pop abit more. Go try it out, it's a very simple program!
