open book with kk textures

I am a bookworm.   If I am without something to read I am not happy.  Sometime I have two or three different books on the go at one time.   Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday challenge this week was “Open”.  When I get a word in my head I will begin to hear lyrics to a song with those words in them.  I had to search Google to find the this song that was rattling around in my head.   The textures I used were Kim’s Evolve and Evolve 2.

I will also be joining Lisa Gordon for The Creative Exchange.   Valerie




Beautifully composed Valerie!

Sure glad I'm not the only one who has more than one book going at a time. Seems like I'm always doing this! This is a beautiful image Valerie. I love the quote, and your processing is wonderful!

Thank you so much for sharing at The Creative Exchange today.

Have a wonderful evening!

I know what you mean about books. I have been working through Elizabeth Berg lately.
I need to hit the library again.
Great post!

Nice picture and text.
Lovely photo and texture!
Guess what song is rattling around in my head right now :)
Hi Val
You chose a creative way to display 'open'. Don't remember the song.
You have to go the library to have something to read. I can't sleep without reading so I have always like tons of library books.
Love your prompt, simple and beautiful.

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…
