Send Me A Postcard
Send me things in the mail. Wherever you go, I don’t care where you go, just send me something in the mail from where you are. —Wallace Berman
It's time for Bonnie's monthly prompt at Pixel Dust Photo Art...I always look forward to this so much! This month's theme is water. I took a photo of the ocean from my Hilton Head vacation in July, and tried to make it look like an old postcard. I used Bonnie's Backlight texture, as well as a couple of others to give it an aged look (a crackle texture and an old tintype frame texture, both of which I found by doing a Creative Commons search on Flickr). I used the cutout effect at some point to make it look more like a printed illustration. I also put it through RadLab several times to sharpen, change the tone, etc. I added the text, using two free fonts from 1001fonts.com: QuigleyWiggly and Pointedly Mad.
