{Friday Photo Bliss}

Inspired by the SouleMama blog's {this moment}, I am posting one image every Friday, taken that week, that really makes me happy. If you end up doing the same I would love to see your photo linked in my comments!


This was taken today with my nifty fifty lens. I ran one of my favorite Photoshop actions on it, Butterscotch Vintage, and then added the ShadowHouse Creations Dirty Paper 2 texture in soft light blending mode. Finally, I used my Web Drop-Shadow action to make it web-ready. 

I also wanted to mention that Jerry at ShadowHouse Creations has a little donation button on his site, so if you use and love his free textures/brushes/tutorials/clipping masks treat him to a coffee if you get a chance!  Jerry is one of the most generous, creative, and incredibly nice people I have met in the photography-editing world.  Heck, he might deserve a couple of beers.  ;-)
