It's Black Friday and twolittlepixels is having a big sale! So come and have a look, and don't forget to visit Sharon's blog Artistic Musings for a look on the new products of this week, some gorgeous stuff I promise:) And perhaps a freebie also?
From now on you can also choose among three currencies, AUS $, US$ and European €.... Ah, why are we still using Swedish Kronor over here, we've lost a lot on that since the financial crisis began. I want EURO! LOL...

This is a photo from my vacation this summer, some old fisherman's cabins by the sea. I wanted to make an old-looking sepia photo of it and found a very interesting tutorial in a Swedish magazine that I partly used, the result is below. I'm not especially good at making tutorials but I will have a try here to describe how I made this.
At first I made the photo black & white, in my case I used the green filter preset in Photoshop CS3. (You can click on the screenshots to have a better look at them.)
Then I clicked on the channels folder in the layers palette, as you can see on the screenshot below . Press Ctrl and click with the mouse on the RGB thumbnail at the same time, (by the red arrow at the screenshot below) There will now be marching ants around all the light areas of the photo.
But it's the dark areas we want to work with, so go to select in the menu and choose inverse (or Shift+Ctrl+I). Now the dark areas are selected.

I've been playing all day with [ksharonkdesigns] new "Beach Play Kit". You can find it here.
It's Friday again and twolittlepixels got some new goodies in the shoppe, we've got a new designer too, the famous Leiko Beck, yes it's true!!! She's got a new gorgeous alpha in the shoppe... And Creashens got a new awesome Christmas kit, in lovely pastel colors. There are so many new products every week now it's best you have a look yourself in the shoppe, we're 10 designers at the moment!
Sharon's kit is so fun to play with, it may be winter up here in the north but I've got some photo's from this summer that I wanted to scrap for a Christmas gift I'm doing for my sister, so I hope she doesn't read my blog, lol.

I've had this little vintagekit laying on my harddisk for a long time now, I made it for some of my own family photos from the 20:ies. But perhaps there is someone who it can be useful for, so if you want it you can download here.
Below is one layout I made using it.
