Colourful Flowerpots



A while ago I purchased these three colourful little flower pots at the Dollar Store.   I intended them for the window sill with herbs in them.    It never happened.  They ended up with pencils etc in them.   The other day I was looking for something to photograph and this is it.   I am not unhappy with it just as it is.


I love the art of putting textures on photos though.   I used a texture lesson from Kristy at lnr-laboratory to place a texture on the pots.   The method is practically the way she instructs you to do it.   The texture I used was one from Kim Klassen called Coffeeteaorme.   I loved the vintage effects of the photo.  

Chelsey at Paper Heart Camera hosts Touch Up Tuesday.   Come by and see the fantastic things other photographers can do with some editing.  

Have a great day.  We are expecting a big snow storm to come through today.   Valerie


Val, I thought you were going to say you painted these pots - something I've done many times and enjoyed creating them.
The after photo does add an interesting look but I find the original fine too.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
