Everyone knows I love vintage looking things. I think part of the reason is because I grew up surrounded by these types of things. My Mom had vintage things all over the house. Looking back, I wish she still had some of those things. I remember the old singer sewing machine, those awesome metal milk cans, washboards, milk bottles etc...
I thought I would share a couple of photos that I took of my kids (more as an art print for my walls than a photo) and give a few tips on how to achieve a look like this.
I love my bright coloured photos as of late, so I haven't done as many with the vintage processing but I am still in love and thought that I should share this simple process...
Here was my original photo:
It's #8 called "Alys Vintage")
It has 7 actions in the set. The ones I use are, first the "Simply Vintage" action and then I run the "Old Canvas" action overtop of it. (this gives it some texture that I like)
Here is a screenshot I took to show you a couple of tips. You can click on it to see the image and instructions more clearly.
Actions add to the effect, but props and location are a really nice addition too.
Here are a few of my vintage samples. These 3, I have hanging on my wall.
