Giant Coneflowers with an Orange Twist

 

Giant Coneflowers with Topax Adj and Textures and CS Frame

Sometimes it is just fun to see what kind of effects you can create when you push a few buttons just to see what will happen.   In this photo I took a picture of the Giant Purple Coneflowers in the Sandbox garden.  After editing them in Photoshop I took it into Topaz Adjust 5 and after trying one preset after another I tried the preset Autumn and really liked it. I took the photo back into Photoshop and added Kim’s latest texture called partings and one from Pixel Dust called memories of Paris.   Then I added a new frame by Rita at Coffeeshop Blog called Vintage Frame 26. 

I am joining Kim Klassen for Texture Tuesday.  Have a great day.

I love this photo. I haven't played much with editing my pics other than Picasa and Ribbet. I love how you can add all the different layers. Some day I'll try something but it all seems confusing to me.
Hi Val
Very pretty, looks like a vintage postcard.

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…
