Photo Editing Tutorial

Today I have a little photo editing tutorial for you. Enjoy! :)
I started with this photo. In this tutorial, I'll show you how to make the whole picture black and white except for the heart.

To start, you will need to have a normal version of your photo and a black and white version of your photo.

If you don't have a black and white version, go to Pixlr Express. Upload your photo and choose adjustment-->color-->saturation-->-100

Save your picture as a different file then your original.

Then go to Pixlr Editor and upload your original photo.

Then click on layer-->open image as layer.
Choose your black and white version.

Then click on the eraser tool on the left side.
Change the brush size to 200 and erase the part you want colored (you don't have to make it perfect right now. Just make sure you only erase inside the part you want colored, not outside).

Now go to view-->zoom in and do that about 5 times. Change your brush size to 20 or 30 and start to erase along the edges.

Thats it! Make so to save your photo. :)

Washi Tape Jar + VerMints Review

This washi tape decorated jar is super easy, but it is also really cute, too! :)

-Small jar
- Washi Tape

Start by wrapping a strip of washi tape around the bottom of the jar.

Add a "X" of washi tape on the top of the jar. Thats it!
Now for the review. If you didn't notice, the things that I had in the jar were VerMints. First of all, the only ones that I have tried are the GingerMint ones. I didn't know there were other flavors, but I'd love to try them. The GingerMint ones are a little spicy, but I like that about them. :) Overall, I love VerMints! You can find their website here.

I hope you had (and have!) a good day! :)
