Dancing Flowers - a Little Animation Fun

Today I hoped to make a stop frame film..... But it just didn't happen.

I'm in Xanthe's Creating Time Capsule eCourse.... and our first assignment is to make a slide show film. We are also learning  about stop-frame animation. I was lucky enough to share a little photoshop animation tutorial with the class..... It's super fun!! Seriously......

I so badly want to put together a fun film.....I have the BEST idea. But it didn't happen today.... tomorrow.... perhaps.... fingers crossed the sun shines, even just a little. :)

In the meantime... a little animation... Xanthe described this as ....a quick montage.... It makes me happy.... 'sigh'....seeing the pretty fresh flowers dancing on the page.

Each image is textured with 'empty page' from The Studio Collection..... (one of my fav textures, for sure).

Here's a collection of the photos.... 

Quick Photoshop Recipe

I ran MCP's Fusion, Heartfelt, action on all the photos. It was exactly what they needed. I then used my empty page texture on linear burn at 69% and then again at soft light 100%..... I rarely use linear burn...but today... I'm lovin' it. That's it... that's all.

Happy Saturday, beautiful friends.....

Before I go.... Oh my gosh... the quotes.. the quotes..... I am in LOVE... there's a life time of quote inspiration in Thursday's post...Check it out! Thank you all for sharing..... I'm thinking a lovely batch of photoshop brushes...featuring some of your fabulous wise words is a must-do for sure!!



p.s. I found a fabulous tripod... Thank you all for your suggestions.... I ended up buying a manfrotto.... and an awesome joystick style ball's seriously FANTASTIC.....  'sigh'.... thanks for all the tips and suggestions.
