Another Picnik

Hello, Dear Ones! Let's have another Picnik.
Have you tried the free photo editing software Picnik?
Well, it's wonderful!
There is an option you can choose and it cost around $25 a year and you get so much more to play with.
Let me show you.

This snap is from one of my previous post.
I played and fiddled and did this!
Cool, huh? Textures and such.

This is my little grand daughter, Carter, taken in March during her birthday time.
I think she's gorgeous and I decided I'l fiddle with her little snap too!

Ta Dah!! I made her gorgeous blue peepers bluer.
I airbrushed her creamy little complexion.
I added a bit of blush to those little apple cheeks!
Gave her a little lipstick - don't think her Daddy would like that! :)
Pinked the tip of her little button nose.
Fun, fun!

Here's another snap.
Just my precious baby.

Oh, but look at this!
I turned the snap to black and white and just blued her little eyes.
Airbrushed her sweet little face and even took away her baby wrinkles on her little neck.
I love this, don't you?

Well, I couldn't stop with Carter. I had to fiddle with my snaps too.

Look at me!
I'll bet you didn't think gorgeousness could be helped, did you?
Please know I'm teasing! :)
Look at me in the after.
I blued my eyes, darked my mascasra, airbrushed my most creamy complexion and even gave myself a little suntan.
Whitened my most pearly whites and added blush and lipstick!
I added a little more color to my hair!

Then I wondered what I would look like with green peepers!
Now I know!
Reddened my locks
Of course I airbrushed my face and took away all the wrinkle I could!

Then I tried brown eyes, and dark hair.
I don't think this is a good look for me, but I was playing.

Chloe Dawn was getting jealous so I had to Picnik her little snap too.
She wanted to be a blonde with purpley highlights and green eyes.
I pinked her little nose a bit and darked her eyelashes.

Just playing and hope you'll go and check Picnik out! As if I have time to play in one more area! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~


When I think back
On all the ___ I learned in high school
It's a wonder
I can think at all
And though my lack of education
Hasn't hurt me none
I can read the writing on the wall

You give us those nice bright colors
You give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah!
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

If you took all the girls I knew
When I was single
And brought them all together for one night
I know they'd never match
My sweet imagination
And everything looks worse in black and white

You give us those nice bright colors
You give us the greens of summers
Makes you think all the world's a sunny day, oh yeah!
I got a Nikon camera
I love to take a photograph
So Mama, don't take my Kodachrome away

  2. That's fun Sheila! I started a post talking about Pizap another free program, I'll see if I can post it too:@)

  3. what a fun time you must have had to tweak with this product!
    You have done great.

    May you have a sweet Spring right into the Summer!
    Hot temps for sure.

    The Kansas wind has been something to deal with....wild. Thankful God is in control.

  4. What fun you had with your Picknik program. I too use Picknik but I haven't purchased any extras for it. I enjoy playing around with the different settings though. Have fun Shelia! Pamela

  5. Hi, Shelia, (have I been spelling your name wrong all the time? :( oops! :)
    I haven't checked in for a while, so I thought I'd stop by. I will certainly check out that fun looking site. Here's my observations:
    I definitely like you better as a blonde!
    The red hair and green eyes is cute.
    Don't ever dye your hair brown. hehehehehe

  6. Hi Sheila
    Looks like you have had so much fun with your new soft ware. Love the beautiful black and white picture of Carter and of course the very cool and colorful looking Chloe Dawn.

  7. Great pics Sheila! What neat things you can do these days...I still want your camera btw! Maybe someday...Well, the granite is on! they had to shave it a little to fit under the tile, but it is looking beautiful! I will have to touch up paint underneath where the firmica came down. That's no problem though...I saw that the guy glued my piece back on too! lol...I don't know if they will tell me or not, but I'm not saying anything. I'll let it slide...I'll post everything soon!! Thanks for the encouraging words! Kristen

  8. I like you with the dark hair!
    I really like the song "Kodachrome"... it brings back memories of the early 70's... maybe 1973 or so??
    Love, Lorraine

  9. Carter sure takes after you, lovely eyes and red hair. I so hope she is doing well and you get to see her soon.

    Looks like blogger is still acting up...geeeee.
    I cant seem to post with my login.


  10. Oh Shellia, this is so much fun! My daughter Alexandra is a professional photographer and makes models look better in everyway, even less wrinkled and less fat too! You must be enjoying this. Your granddaughter Carter is gorgeous, doesn't need any bluer eyes! hahahaaaa...I'm also at TTT. Lots of hugs.

  11. That is really good Sheila! Although I have to say that little Carter doesn't need any help at all!
    And your so funny, I love your playful sense of humor!
    Hugs to you,

  12. Shelia, you have a great time with Reba! You are a great photographer. Your grandgirl is the most adorable baby. I like your blonde hair the best of all! xo,

  13. Hello Shelia! This is a fun post. You really enjoyed playing with Picnik. Your grandchild is the cutest. I just love those sparkling blue eyes.

  14. LOL, you have too much time on your hands! That sweet baby needs no enhancement, perfect as she is~

  15. This was so much fun. You and the baby were beautiful to start though.

  16. Oh, do I LOVE Picnik! I wish I was not Photoshop-impaired...but I am, so Picnik is my answer. I use it for almost every post now! It's too darn fun! BTW, aren't brown eyes just lovely! I have always thought so!! ;} Although, nothing can really compare to precious baby's peepers!

    m ^..^

  17. If...I send myself to you..can you airbrush my wrinkles..make my eyes more green and take away these extra pounds... :)
    She is...absolutely gorgeous, Shelia...just beyond adorable!

  18. Carter is a doll Shelia! What a neat site you found! I would love to be able whiten my teeth and take away some wrinkles too!

  19. You look gorgeous in all of them...what fun.Trish

  20. I see sweet Carter in you. I love picnik and have used it forever and pay for the extras. :)


I'm so pleased you would come to see me and so please leave me a comment and I'll do my very best to respond back to you. Be a sweetie...Shelia :)
