altered photos

June 23, 2006

… is this week’s theme at Blue Bazaar. i had a tonne of fun with this one! the photo was taken last week while we were in melbourne (visiting michael’s grandmother). i’ve always wanted to see the Brighton beach houses so we arranged to meet michael’s cousin & his family for dinner – fish & chips on the beach at brighton! unfortunately sunset arrives in melbourne a whole lot earlier than it does here – so even tho it was only 5ish when we got off the train, it was already almost sunset & we had quite a walk to get to the beachhouses. but … the vision of the brightly painted beach houses against the backdrop of the city & the amazing sunset was well worth the effort!


materials: DB bazzil, heidi swapp tape, mm ribbon, basic grey lettering

photo info: used curves to adjust colour, then applied the poster edges filter & printed on canvas.

i think i’ll get the image enlarged & printed on canvas for our house too!
