 TWO pretty  vintage bowls that belonged to my mother..
Gonna show ya how to make them even prettier !!     FUN ♥
I wonder if a man sees a BOWL OF FRUIT 
as beautiful as a woman does !?!
Is this photo PRETTY because it is 
is it really PRETTY ?
As most of you might know,
I have such fun PLAYING with my photos in PHOTOSCAPE.

I seem to delight in taking a photo and turning it into something
                           just a little bit more FUN..
                             a little more interesting.

I seldom post a photo of mine that hasn't been
RUN THRU Photoscape...
either to
CONTRAST ....any number of things can be done over there..
believe me when I say...
It's a whole new world over THERE ! 
I dearly LOVE using their awesome BORDERS...
my favorite being the one above that adds so much SOFTNESS to my photos.
 ...this REFLECTIONS looks really cool
 I LOVE this OUT OF FOCUS feature ....
 and the PUZZLE has always been one of my favorites..
THIS gives the appearance of an OLDEN photo..
THIS one..?..
 ...the evening begins....
lights grow dim
 A 'WATERCOLOR' of my amazing bowl of fruit..
with clouds of SUGAR FREE Cool Whip, painted right into the picture.
Don't you love it ?
Oh Yes Indeed..
You can put a whole new SPIN on your photos
You should try it..
it is addicting and fun and you will just love it.

You are such a creative and inspirational person!! When I grow up I want to be as creative and cook as good as you !!!! lol

Neabear said...

Love it! It was you who first told me about photoscape and now I usually run my pictures through there before I put them on my blog! We learned something when trying to download photoscape on my husband's laptop. It is NOT as we first thought. That takes you to something else. Instead try You will want v3.5. This is for anyone who is trying to find it. Hope it helps!

Love your yummy post! And the fact that you use SUGAR FREE whip cream. That is a bunch of points for you! :)


PS I have now lost 11 pounds! Yay!

It is always a pleasure to get to see some of your pretty things!

Kelly said...

I need to try that sometime. That's probably the key to showing better pictures on your blog. I'm still learning about how to take good pictures. Thanks for the tip!

Blondie's Journal said...

Your photos are always so pretty, I didn't know you played with them! I have never used Photoscape, I'm not techy like that!! The fruit and whipped cream looks heavenly!! I'm a bad girl though...I'm making hamburgers for the football guys!

I've used picnik and pizap, haven't tried photoscape. Fun pics:@)

Pat said...

You really have been playing with your food. Just remember - if you don't eat your meat and potatoes - you don't get no dessert!

Mid-Atlantic Martha said...

I'm going to have to give it a whirl (so to speak) Your bowls full of delight look fabulous!

Cozy Little House said...

I love Photoscape. It's where I put my banners together with text. That food looks delicious!

Vee said...

I love it, too, but I do not use it in all these wonderful ways. You can really sell things, BJ. Now I want to play in Photoscape AND have a dish of delicious fruit with whipped cream and nuts.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

My friend, YOU ARE GOOD! I am still afraid to push any buttons I don't know anything about! What fun that must have been to see the changes. I don't even do my own headers...I'm that much of a fraidy cat!!
I would love to know how to do frames...just lovely!!

Donnie said...

Anyway you post those photos they all look delicious. I need to go make some ice cream for Don and

Something Nice and Pretty said...

I've never tried photoscape, I always do picnik, I'll have to take a look at it! I do love the watercolor one and the puzzle one looked fun! Your pictures are great oh, and yummy!

NanaDiana said...

OMGosh- I don't know how to do any of that! I have never tried it and I guess fear of not knowing what the heck I am doing holds me back. Maybe when I get some of my hours cut down I will try it!

I DON'T think men see the beauty in a bowl of fruit like women do...unless you can make it look like a pretty woman....hmmmm..xo Diana

Kathleen said...

You are good! I just put them on the way they are! It must take hours to do what you do!
I can't use pecans without thinking of you!

Anita Stafford said...

Wow that is amazing! I do well just to get a photo uploaded! You should teach a class on this!

Marla and Steve @ Always Nesting said...

The photos are awesome but why oh why did I think...stop playing with your food?? Girl, you can play with your food now. You are old enough to do what you want, lol!

Kathleen Grace said...

Your photos are always brilliant BJ. And as far as I'm concerned, anything with whipped cream on it is beautiful:>)

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

BJ, keep on playing with your food. These photos are so much fun! I have never tried photoscape, but now I think I am missing out on lots of fun!

TexWisGirl said...

have never tried photo scape, but now i'm certainly craving something sweet! :)

Ralph said...

This arrangement just looks delicious! Almost too nice looking to eat, but you know guys like to eat. What a treat in both style and taste!

Actually, today's RT was part of the shadow chasing for Shadow Shot, but was not chosen for the Sunday post. I thought that it would make a fine RT post instead!

ArtMuseDog and Carol said...

Very unique photos ~ and creative ~ Great for RT ~ namaste, Carol (A Creative Harbor)

La said...

Any way you look at it, it looks delicious.

I like the jigsaw puzzle. This one is new to me.
