Second Star To The Right

I still don't have photoshop, but Thomas was kind enough to lend his photo editing expertise to a couple of these pictures and put a few of my monster doodles on them. I've been wanting to add my doodles to my photographs for ages now but have lacked the skill set and equipment to do it. I only recently switched from my computer's free photo editing software to Lightroom for my pictures, so it will probably be awhile until I upgrade to something that allows me even more creativity. One of the things I love about blogging is having an excuse to play around with photography and be creative. Every time I feel less rushed to get things done I try to experiment with a new editing technique or teach myself something new about my camera. Anyway, the childish doodles are a fitting complement to the Peter Pan-inspired dress which reminds me of my childhood. I like how evocative the little silhouettes are--a simple outline but we all immediately recognize those night-gowned figures.

The dress is simply lovely! I have never heard of the company who makes it. Do you own any other dresses by them? I think your doodles add a nice touch. It reminds me of Peter Pan's shadow. Have a lovely day!

I love the little doodles that you added in with Photoshop. Thank goodness that Thomas came to the rescue!

That dress is so beautiful! I love that your styling adds a classic touch to the cosmic print.

@Anna Neumann, this is my only dress from Romwe however a lot of my friends have multiple items from this company. I'm glad you like the doodles--they remind me of the shadow too :)

That is such a cool dress. I'd love to wear it to Disneyland :) Also love how your hair matches the pink stripes on the wall.

As a free alternative to Photoshop, with a similar interface and similar features, I suggest Artweaver! (just google & it'll come up :)

Lovely! Another good free alternative to Photoshop with almost the same layout is Pixlr; you can either use it online or download! :)
