Barn Charm

How about another barn charm post.
The first one straight off the camera.

A few adjustments


playing a little with the impressionist brush and adding some color to the sky.


And then I had to add some texture. 

So if less is more then why is it I have to keep on going with the playing?

Oh that looks a little like our barn. Like the way you changed it all around but do like the original the best. Have a great Sunday.

It's because you have fun doing just that. I like it much better than the original. Just saying.

Have a terrific day. My best to Duke. :)

The second and fourth are my favs - You keep on playing because you are just naturally creative...

I love the final result! And the fun is in the tweaking!

Mmmmmm, the finished work is like a masterful piece of art. Well done Ann.

ps....just read your comment you left for me earlier today about how your hubby would talk about a waste of gas just to get out and drive somewhere...

Well, my response to something like that way of thinking would be, with the high price of gas, it would only evaporate in the tank if you don't use it. So, using it isn't so much a waste as it would be if you don't use it. Right?

There's always a way to work around 'em. Men don't know it all. LOLOLOL

Because playing is fun!

Great job as always! I am pretty good about limiting my "playing" time right now, but I know that if/when I make the jump to Photoshop, all of that will change.

I think you have given a very bland barn a lot of character and that old farm feeling...it looks great!! Now if only you could make it look like that for real!!

Don't unplug your hub. said...

You have definitely improved that barn.

Reeni said...

I LOVE what you did! You gave it such character.

BeadedTail said...

Because you love to play and you always do a great job! You should stick a horse or two in that last photo for it to be totally complete! :)
