What to Wear Wednesday: This is an easy one

Like, DUH…


a sparkly red Santa hat



Added per the request of BrassyMom…because BrassyMom gets what BrassyMom wants *wink*

Herefollows the rundown on how this photo got to here:

  • Photo taken on my iPhone 4
  • Run through the MoreBeaute app on the iPhone
  • Uploaded to Picnik – Picnik is my crack. (I can’t “do” Photoshop.)
  • Cropped *wink*
  • Now it gets fuzzy… cuz I played…
  • I used the “featured” effect Winterized – and faded it… in this case to, like 70%
  • Added the Cross Processed effect and fade… to like, 70ish
  • The the touch-ups… I *may* have airbrushed. But just because it adds softness. *ahem*. The soften feature in the effects is great, but not always the best fit. I also *may* have added highlights, mascara, blush and helped the true blue of my eyes be shown.
  • I took this with an iPhone 4, in low light with no flash, so…
  • THEN.
  • What took this from “Girl in Hat” to “Santa’s Helper in Hollywood”… *drumroll*…. Holiday Textures in Picnik’s “featured effects”. The one in the top row, third from the right. I chose the default overlay (screen) and dropped the fade, to probably 25%
  • Then… added the vignette effect to help disguise the uncreative background of my very plain photo studio bathroom.
  • I felt the Bidmo Jiggler font was the best fit. And also it has dots in it and I love that font.

The hat:

  • I bought at Rite Aid.
  • The last 2 in the store.
  • 50% off…
  • 3 bucks
  • Priceless


Keep up on the ridiculous, the insightful, the always digressive…

    Oh, DAH-LINK! That photo is far, FAR too fab.

    I’m not sure if I want to swoon or throw my camera out the second story window. If you have a rundown on your process for this one, PLEASE SHARE. <3

    Awesome! Thank you so much for the update! I’ve been playing with Picnik for the last few months and it is crazy how much you can do with even just the free version of it. I’ve totally saved crappy, low-light photos from when my (idiot) dog was just an adorable pupkins.
