Art-ography #1

This is a picture my sister Beth took of her backyard during a snowstorm. I liked the coloring and the visible snow and added to that by adding "noise" in PSP. Then I simply added a quote on a vector layer, designing it with different fonts and sizes to give it interest.

Christmas Journal Day Thirty One

Christmas Journal Day Twenty Four - late addition

Christmas Journal Day Twenty Nine

Today's prompt was to make a title page.

Christmas Journal Day Twenty Eight

Today's prompt was once a year . . .

Christmas Journal Day Twenty Seven

The prompt for today was sleeping in, but a) I don't do that and b) the 27th was our big family party day, so I decided to do what I DID do on the first day I had to slow down, which was today . . .

I need to organize pictures (and my thoughts) about my weekend with my family, so I went ahead and did today's prompt about reviewing the year.

Christmas Journal Day Nineteen

Today's prompt was to write a letter to Santa - I turned it around a bit.

Snow day!

This picture was taken out my front door into the courtyard. The snow is still falling a bit, but we didn't get near what others in the midwest got overnight - maybe 3".

Christmas Journal Day Sixteen

Today's prompt was gratitude.

Phase One complete

I no longer have a dining room! Instead I have a lovely 36x60 counter height work space complete with a 36x24 cutting board and a 36x20 ironing surface. It is directly under the one ceiling light fixture in the room and next to the patio which on sunny days gives me lots of natural light all day long. I am thrilled! More pictures of the rest of the studio as I get things organized.

Christmas Journal Day Eleven (late)

The prompt on the 11th was to journal about your Christmas tree. Well, I don't bother with one, except I do have this cute tree shaped metal thing . . . and I thought maybe I'd go down and get it . . . and then I decided I wouldn't bother . . . again!
