Fun with Photoshop

I've run an older photo of Sky (a lovely Peak's Woods Fairy of Color) through a few Topaz filters (Adjust and Star Effects) via Photoshop Elements, and I'm just having a blast.

You can add a little bling to your photos. This one has Waterdrops and Jewel Sparkle from the Star Effect plug in, and French Countryside coloring from the Adjust plug-in. They work with lots of available software--go check them out!

Jazz Baby Doll Reader exclusive by Val Zeitler

In January of this year, Haute Doll released a limited edition exclusive doll, Jazz Baby, available for purchase to attendees. She is produced by DollHeart and designed by Val Zeitler. She stands 23" (58cm) tall, and is simply amazing.

She has a 1980s Speakeasy theme--she includes a soft vintage wardrobe, with additional outfits to come during the year. She includes a cigarette holder, beauty mark and garter. She is limited to just 40 dolls, and now, you can purchase this lovely girl through the Doll Reader's website for $695. Shipping is an additional $30 to Canada, and additional $60 to other international destinations.

Oh, I just adore her!

This girl is one of the many, many reasons you need to subscribe to one of the fabulous doll magazines out there. Whether in print or online, be a support of these great publications! It's a fantastic resource!

Update--Sorry about that. My links weren't all working earlier. I've just fixed them.
