I'm feeling Lomoish

I keep wanting to write up a blog post with more depth, but it just doesn't seem to happen. I think I remember the same thing last summer.

Anyhoo, today I finished this long-time (over a year) WIP — a skirt made from a flea market baby quilt. The photos were less than great, so I paid my $25 and signed up for picnik. I probably could have played around in Photoshop using the prescribed layer configuration for a Lomoish look, but sometimes it's just easier to use a Flash interface that helps you do the same thing, only easier.

Love your skirt! (And I'm having fun with Picnik too, but was too cheap to pay the $25--so I'm just using the free version.)

I went for it too. Though it keeps crashing on my apple. Hmmm.

Cute skirt, lomo or no lomo.

I've never heard of Picnik--I will have to try it now.
I am woefully computer illiterate.

I love your skirt and I love the bathtub, too!

Hmm, I keep hearing about Picnik (and struggling with Photoshop--or just not using it out of frustration).

Love the skirt.

Love that baby quilt skirt. But I think I love your wall paper more!

OK so I'm completely out of the loop over here in the colonies - I've never heard of Picnik. But I will be investigating. That photo looks awesome! Hey, have you finished your stripey afghan yet? I love that blankie!
