I’ve got this arrangement with a friend – she teaches me Photoshop techy thingies and I teach her wordpress bloggy thingies. Today, we spent 4 hours teaching me the PS bits and bobs. Here we go:

Post processing – I won’t bore you with all the inbetween steps, but I can assure you it took about 4 hours.

And a wee frame. This photograph looks to me as if she is a painting on some recently excavated ruins. I had a terrific time learning this, thank goodness my teacher has the patience of a saint!

I’ve been going through my inventory and discovered quite an array of stunning gowns I have accumulated over the past months. Considering the post-Christmas budgetry issues that always happen this year, I thought I’d show you some of the things I have unearthed. These designs are from Azul

This delicate cocktail length dress, ‘Josephine Leger’ is so whimsical and light, it floats around you. I have added purple ballet shoes from DeLa and jewellery from my old favourite, Muse. The hair is a new release from Detour which I spotted on Cajsa’s blog yesterday

A close up of the Dauphine jewellery from Muse. The skin is the ‘Bella Painted – blue eye shadow with grape doll lips’ from Ugly Duck. My lovely lashes are from Miamai

The second dress, Aida, is shown full length.

I have added the stunning jewellery from Alchemy Immortalis, “Ami amet deli pencet” French Brooch Necklace and Vine Earrings and used the options to alter the metal to silver.

This skin is the Bella – Painted (green eyeshadow – blue doll lips) from Ugly Duck, lashes again from Miamai.

I hope my photos give you some ideas for your own inventory raid. You’d probably be surprised to see what you unearth 🙂

Ugly Duck now has a gatcha machine!

It’s been loaded up with some of the very unique designs from Fade Lei. Here’s a sampling:

Gatcha!

I love these cat eyes, these are the best I have seen. It gives you quite an exotic look

You can try your luck at Ugly Duck Gatcha. It’s well worth your visit 🙂
