1 Photo - 3 Different Ways...

The latest challenge over at Beyond Layers is to create three different edits from the same image.
           Top Left:        Original shot.
           Top Right:      RadLab action "get faded spring" and added KK- flourish texture.
           Bottom left:    RadLab actions "warm kiss" and "flare up garden", the added KK-abstract 
                                 and KK-framed textures.
          Bottom Right:  B&W conversion with KK-framed texture.

Staying inspired has not been easy for me lately, but taking a short break has helped.

This lily just opened up yesterday. I love the little spots on the petals.

Texture Tuesday...Oh So Soft eDition

I used a combination of textures from Kim Klassen and Ruth West.
I also use a technique learned on Beyond Layer to add a subtle frame.

Noisy Miners...

I have taken the habit of taking my camera down the stables. These little birds decided to stay perched in this tree as the sun was slowly going down.

Simple Things...

 This butterfly came for a visit, but by the time I grabbed my camera and zoom lens...

 ...he had disappeared above the pergola. I had to stand on a garden chair to get the shots.
