Take a Word--Childhood
I've been hoping to find a use for this wonderful old photo of children gatheres for their Christmas photo. The annual Christmas photo is a childhood experience that I'm sure most of us remember--fancy clothes, bright lights, Mom fussing with hair and collars...This photo is actually a stereopticon slide. I can remember looking at such slides at my grandmother's house at Christmas during my own childhood.
For those who don't know, a stereopticon is a viewer that takes two copies of the same slide and shows a 3-D image to the viewer--an early incarnation of the old Viewmaster, that I'm sure you all remember.
I found this slide at Wikimedia Commons, in their Christmas collection. I added a couple of gradients, a background texture by UR_2, some sheet music from the Graphics Fairy and some photoshop brushes.
Thanks vor visiting.

Linda, I am blown away by what you were able to do with the tiny black and white photo. The end result is exquisite. The colouring, especially the soft green background is perfect. The image in itself is beautiful but you have added magic to it.ReplyDelete
Take a bow for a huge standing ovation(Sorry I am late with my comments this week).
