What I do when I can't sleep at night!

Okay, this is what I do when I can't sleep at night, which seems to be alot lately. I realize I could be taking these sleepless nights and cleaning out closets or doing laundry or counting sheep..... but this is much more fun. I've been playing around in Picnik! We talked about Picnik for one of Brenda's Photo Challenges (which is this Sat., see my sidebar to play)but this is really a fun and easy(easy & free being the key words) site. It doesn't have everything photoshop would have and I just use it to do fun things on. So here's a few things I did on Picnik. First I made the girls a new banner for their picture website, I think it turned out cute and you can see the finish product here.



And do you remember the photo I took of Cameron's eyes which we made black and white and only highlighted his eyes? Well, which one do you think are his real eyes? LOL Well, it's not the green or the vampire colored eyes either! But it is fun to play with the eye color!










And this feature has to be my very favorite one of all. I think it's called pencil sketch. So I took two of my favorite photos of Maddie and I at Hilton Head and turned them into a pencil drawing. Cool huh?








This top photo really looks like one of my Dad's photos from the 1960's. LOLThis last one was a 60's effect to the photo and I put the original just to show you the difference. See how much fun you can have when you can't sleep! Have a great Wednesday!
