Touch-up Tuesday

Kids have always had a facination for balloons. Beats me what makes them so cool. Give a kid a balloon and they’ll have tons of fun! That is until they let their balloon go and as they see them fly away the world seems to come to an end.

This is my SOOC shot of J playing in the kitchen with his brother’s balloon who got it at his dentist’s appointment a few back back.

This little boy kept hitting us with the balloon and he was so excited!!
I think I am missing out on the coolness of the balloons!

First edit:

I used Coffee Shop‘s ColorPop action.


I love my boy’s hair! It’s all gone now, we shaved his head. Are we the only crazy people to shave their kids’ heads so that their hair will grow thicker?  I’ve gotten a lot of weird looks for suggesting this.

Second edit:

I really like this edit. I returned to the SOOC photo and used the P&W Black and White action. I merged the layers but the background layer and this is what happened! I called it B&W Colorized! hehehehe


We tried to make static with the balloon so to make it stay on J’s head, but it did not want to work! Next time I’ll have to use my hair, then it will work!

Third edit:

I went back to the original shot. This time I used the Color Crossing or Cross Coloring (you know which one!) action that I love so much!


Final edit:

And this is my final edit! I just love cross coloring and rounded corners!

Come join in the fun!

    I love this picture! They are all great but I think the B&W Colorized one if my personal favorite. My kids LOVE balloons too!!

    Your little guy is too precious for WORDS!!! Sooooo cute! I love your edits and the fact that there is a variety! I was trying to do the same thing for mine, but man…it was NOT working for me! I really like the last edit. I don’t know why…but those rounded corners are TOTALLY working for this picture! 🙂 It totally made the picture stand out and be really special! Love it!

    Love your photo! Little ones really do love balloons, and I LOVE to watch the joy in their eyes as they play.

    You did a really great job on the edit!
