A Sense of Calm

 

stumps-in-water-texturized

My textured photo is showing the cool calmness of the forest in spring.   I used two layers of Kim Klassen’s texture luminous with blending modes of soft light and multiply.   I then added an overlay from Shadowhouse called Box 1 to finish it off.   I hope it speaks to you too. 

I will be joining Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen Cafe and Touch Up Tuesday with Paper Heart Camera.    My husband just called me to come outside to see the fireflies.   Have a great day.  Valerie

Oh I remember fireflies. I haven't seen them in years. When I lived in Long Island New York they were everywhere. Not so much here in Massachusetts.

Your texture is beautiful, and i loved how you framed it and your words.

P.S. thanks for the memories of fireflies and jars of them glowing in the dark.

Such a lovely photo - the text is perfect. The reflection in the water is really nice as well.

I would love to see a firefly too. Your edit is beautiful and so soft and hazy.

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…
