All Things Vintage: Kisses #AprilA2Z

 

Good-morning and welcome back, kittens and dawgs for another edition of All Things Vintage!

Famous kiss

Camera that captures famous kiss in Time Square sells for $150,000. Read about it, here.

This photo is perhaps one of the most famous kisses. I enjoyed reading the history behind this moment is in this article.  Normally, I share my own pictures with my Wordless Wednesday network, but I’m participating in the #AprilA2Z challenge, and if that’s what brings you here today, then you’re welcome to link your URL at the bottom. Since you’re here, I hope you enjoy these vintage photographed kisses.

3-for-1 Saturday Special: Songsuasion/Sillies & s-ART-urday #ToveLo

The Swedish born singer/songwriter, Tove Lo, rose to fame in 2013 with “Habits (Stay High)” and hit the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in April of last year ranking #3 on the list. She is the highest charting Swedish singer since Ace of Base #1 song “The Sign” in 1994. I invite you to enjoy one of the best Tove YouTube song compilations this morning!

 

Thanks for visiting, kittens & dawg! I hope the weekend and the people in your life are treating you right. I mentioned the A2Z challenge caused me to question my blogging direction. You did get that from an earlier post, didn’t you? One thing I decided to change is my weekend posts. I make time to take time off in Blogosphere even though I schedule posts, but everyone needs a day off. So, starting now I’m suspending my Sunday posts as I roll that opportunity into one with the launch of 3-for-1 Special: Saturday Songsuasion/Sillies & s-ART-urday!

Bear with me, as I figure out a new blogging routine that makes me happy and hopefully you, too.

My sillies this weekend is honor of dear Mom!

Things Mom Would Never Say

  • “How on earth can you see the TV sitting so far back?”
  • “Yeah, I used to skip school a lot, too”
  • “Just leave all the lights on … it makes the house look more cheery”
  • “Let me smell that shirt — Yeah, it’s good for another week”
  • “Go ahead and keep that stray dog, honey. I’ll be glad to feed and walk him every day”
  • “Well, if Rahul’s mamma says it’s OK, that’s good enough for me.”
  • “The curfew is just a general time to shoot for. It’s not like I’m running a prison around here.”
  • “I don’t have a tissue with me … just use your sleeve”
  • “Don’t bother wearing a jacket – the wind-chill is bound to improve”

With Mother’s Day tomorrow, I wanted to created some really special for my mom!

Project 4: Join Claudia this week for another addition of #s-ART-urday!

It goes without saying, Dah, these images weren’t snapped by me! I don’t know who was behind the camera. Let’s not worry over that for the moment. I used two vintage photos, I will display those in a moment, for creating my new masterpiece and I thanks to Obsidian Dawn for the free-use of the cool light beam brush tool!

I used this picture for my image background. Yes, that darling little girl is me. 😉

In the below photo all I wanted was my mom’s image, so I used the Photoshop Elements lasso select tool to pluck her image right out of the picture like magic.

Merging two photos together is tricky, especially when the lightening is slightly off. I add Mom to the foreground framing the left side and placing me in the background. I applied PS Elements clone stamp tool to blend the trouble spots around Mom’s head where the light was obviously brighter. I touched up a few scratches using the PS Elements spot healing brush, adding the cool Light Beam special effect brought the whole picture together.

I loaded my finished PS Elements image to AutoDesk Pixlr to apply dirt frame.

Which photo-art image do you like the best?

That’s a wrap for this week. I hope you enjoyed your visit and I appreciate you including me in your weekend. Feel free to invite your friends to stop in to enjoy the artwork, listen to the music, and to have a few giggles. It’s a great feeling to share! Have a songsational Saturday!

Happy Mother’s Day to all my lovely blogger moms!

Catch me on Monday’s Music Moves Me, if you wanna boogie!
