La Vie en Rose

I have a LOT of time to kill.

While waiting for responses from job applications, I thought I'd spend my spare time playing on GIMP.



For those of you who don't know GIMP (I apologize for not explaining before), it is a free software editor for retouching images of different formats digitally. And the great part about it is, it is for free!

Digital Scrapbooking is a big thing today. I don't have a fancy scrapbooking software (as much I would love to have one) because I can't afford yet. Bah!

 If you are into scrapbooking, my very good friend Cindy of Whimsical Musings is offering a $10 off for the program. Just visit her blog to see how and see her work samples.

But for now, I will be using my trusty free editting toy.

It is time consuming but so much fun as long as you gotten used to it! So today, I played with it and made this mixed digi-art.




Somehow, the movie La Vie en Rose was stuck on my head. This image is inspired by the song.

 I put the song lyrics, a photo of rose I took and a little help from my favorite vintage image sources Dezinaworld and Graphics Fairy. Check their website if you love things vintage perfect for craft arts and deco :)

what's the latest art you made?

à demain!
