St. Augustine Lighthouse

Road trip to the Museum of Southern History in Jacksonville, Florida. A nice collection of artifacts from "the War Between the States". Great conversation with the staff and volunteers. A great place for research if you are in the area.

Photo ops in St.Augustine and a drive back to New Smyrna Beach along the coastal highway.

More photo metamorphosis!

New Smyrna Beach

My iPhone has become my art journal. At least one of my art journals. It's fascinating to me to see what I can do with an ordinary photo shot with my iPhone, then processed through various photo apps.

The finished product above "morophed" from these images below.

Begin by adding vivid color and brighter images in "image correction" with PhotoStudio. Perform cropping and saturation adjusting with PhotoShop Express.

Save each edition of your photo as you shift between photo apps.

Using CinemaFX select the color comic option and use the slide bar and strike circle to make adjustments .

Take a final spin through Photo Shop Express to sharpen your image and one more turn through PhotoStudio, selecting "art" "burnt colors".

The finishing touch is to add text using Ransom Letters.

Post from your phone using Blogpress or BlogpressLite.

The Gospel

Pink Tractor

Heading southeast to the Florida coast. We spent most of the day on the road, no time for photos.

But lurking right behind the Best Western, here in northern Georgia, a pink tractor. Of course I edited it through several photo apps , but it started out pink, well almost pink. Pink looked pink, honest!

Just When I Thought I Had Tried Everyhing

Just when I thought I had tried everything...well most everything, Pam Carriker introduced hand carved stamps into the art mix in her 365 Journal class!

Using images and photos from previous journal pages , I traced cone flowers and lettering and combined them with some doodling to create this stamp. Transfer the image to the linoleum block and carve...

Of course we have to take photos of everything, and then in turn I have to edited photos with assorted iPhone apps.

We start with your basic stamped image and then apply PhotoStudio.....

And no photo editing is complete without a trip through CinemaFX

Back to the drawing board!
