The Creativity Project {Fresh}


is the theme for January's Creativity Project

and I found it fitting to wake to freshly fallen snow recently.

The kids were excited,

and I was thankful Gene and Kristen took Linhsey out to play in it

because me and the cold don't get along very well.

The theme {Fresh} can be interpreted in so many different ways.

A fresh start to the New Year.

Fresh out of the oven.

Freshly cut flowers.

I'm excited to see how everyone interpreted our theme this month,

and I'm also excited to see who will join along and post images to our FaceBook Fan Page.

We love to feature fans who join in.

A Before & After

Thought I would have a little fun with a before and after. This image is SOOC

Here is the after. I used One Willow's adjustment brushes {with my own tweaks} and smoothed her skin slightly, removed a scar off of her nose, and made some slight adjustments to her eyes. After that I ran Red Leaf Studios new Film Emulsion preset Color 400. Simple and subtle. 

*This image was edited in Lightroom 4 only.
