For today’s Happy half-hour, I created 20 album cover images in 30 minutes. One or two have been edited a little, but mostly these are images created using items readily to hand and were captured on my phone. You can see the full set on Flickr here.

Starting with a ‘clean’ image, I processed this by adjusting the contrast on the image to 100% and applying the first filter option within the app. This was posted to my Instagram stream.
