I have Spring Fever BIG TIME!
 
I played around in Photoshop to create this whimsical,
carefree...SPRINGY portrait of a baby floating by
balloons.
 
The photo is a compilation of three other photos!
 
If you want to try it...here's how I did it:
 
I started with a photo of someone holding up a baby in the air.
 
I took this one last fall.  I had to do some magical cloning
to get rid of Dad's hand and arm.
 
 
Then I cloned my kids out of this photo so I could
use the background.
 
 
I snagged the balloons from this photo...
One of my dud photos from a trampoline photo
shoot last summer. 
 
But the balloons were perfect!
 
 
I layered it all together and got this:
 
 
Look through your photos for somebody running,
or jumping or spreading their arms like this:
 
 
You can use my background, and I made a PNG of
the balloons for you to scoot into your photo.
 
 

And create something like this:
 
 
Or this:
 
 
Create some spring MAGIC!

Isn't photoshop so much fun. In my post, I helped the longhorn cow appear in the field of wildflowers, however, did not do nearly as good a job as you did. This is such a cute digital creation that you have done! Love it!
