AT IT AGAIN OR STEP AWAY FROM THE COMPUTER

I got these vintage seed packets from edytheanne.typepad.com. Although this was her One World One Heart giveaway, I didn't win. She was kind enough to offer them, though, to any of those of us who entered her drawing. I couldn't resist ordering them. These are just two of the fifty images I received. Talk about a great deal!

As I cannot seem to leave well-enough alone, I was playing in Photoshop and the following images are what I came up with. At some point, I will probably use them on pillows and most likely in the original form. I just like manipulating and altering them to see what I can come up with.

Hi Tamerie... oooh those are so pretty! You are having so much fun with your photos, I love it! Wouldn't it be cool if you could wave a magic wand and your flowers in your garden would change colors like that too? I love purples and blues... the vintage seed packets are wonderful! xoxo Julie Marie

Wow....the colors just seem to leap off the screen. My favs are the blue calendula and the very last one, sort of peachy colored. You're just having way too much fun with these!!

I would like to see a white sofa with one each of the daisy packet images on pillows.
Very pop!

Hey Tamerie
I see you have well and truly caught the bug... I find that every photo I alter I end up with about 20 versions of each... my poor mac.. getting crammed already!! Love these seed packets!! They look great in all the colours here..
