Painting Vintage Photos

Posted on by 2 comments

I found a tutorial over at DesignerDigitals.com  for painting vintage photos.  It was surprisingly much easier than I thought, and now I’m hooked on it.  I can’t believe the difference it makes on the old photos.

This is my great grandmother Mollie Davis Harris, whom everyone called Big Momma.  I don’t know what color her eyes were, but I gave her blue eyes like my grandmother.

These next two pictures, I wouldn’t really classify them as vintage, since they are both photos of living people, and they would probably have a thing or two to say to me if I ever, in any way referred to them as vintage, cause their not.  Just sayin’.

This is cousin Robert Cowan as a young man.  Love the jacket.  Do those ever go out of style??

Last but not least, because I had so much fun doing this one, here is cousin Nedra Harris Turney as a baby. What a cutie pie!

So drag out those old photos, and give em’ a re-do in Photoshop. You’ll be pleasantly surprised with the results!

Cousins Party

Posted on by 0 comment

Wednesday found us in Texarkana, Arkansas and Texas, visiting family and celebrating the holidays.  First we went to see Aunt Jane in the nursing home.

Then we went to Nedra’s for a cousin’s party.  My Dad hasn’t seen some of his cousins in years, so he really enjoyed it.  I of course, had to get them all together for photo opportunities.  Here’s a picture of the Harris cousin’s as children, and as adults.  Some of them are no longer with us, and Pat had to leave early and missed the picture.

Here is a couple of group shots, with everyone that came except for Pat Harris Sherrin who left early, and Jon Brock and his family, who arrived after the photo was taken.  I’m sorry I didn’t get one with everyone.

Two different photos for two different photo takers, next time I will remember the tripod!

It was a fun time, and a special Thank you to Nedra and Jerry for having us all in your home.
