Lots of Firsts

Lots of first today. My first photo website. My first etsy shoppe.

And my first attempt at textured portraits.

I used Kim Klassen's create edges and yesteryear.

  7. I'll be honest and say I usually don't care for texture being added to a photo but this is really well done. It of course doesn't hurt that you started with a very good photo. Love her little smile and she has great eyes.

    Photos like this make me want to try textures.

  22. Haven't visited for a while as work stopped play. You certainly haven't let the grass grow beneath your feet! Great stuff - go Alicia. I changed blog addresses, badly, so lost a few people, hope you weren't one of them. Love the portrait pic by the way - off to check out the new site.
