Learning some techniques using PhotoShop...







I have been learning how to use textures and layers in Photoshop after following a tutorial I saw on a lovely blog called frenchkisstextures.com. Leslie provides instructions that are pretty easy to follow. I was so excited after a few attempts to be able to complete my project. The second picture was done using Leslie's image and texture and the first picture I did using a texture I found online layered with a picture I had taken of a centerpiece that I had made a few years ago. And the last picture is done using Leslie's image and texture with another texture added by me.

If you have a chance pop in on Leslie and see all the great tutorials she offers.

Just stunning...


I took this picture of the moon last night with my new lens that I got for Christmas. I think it came out pretty amazing since I just grabbed my camera and took a few shots, nothing fancy!

Winter Blues...



Although Christmas has past and I long for summer days I can't seem to get myself in the mode to design anything other than something for the Winter months or Christmas. Are you having the same problem or have you happily moved along to new things? I could use some inspiration because I seem to be stuck...
