It's been a long night tonight. It's four o'clock in the morning, the Mrs hasn't been feeling so good, and I'm tired. I've tried to play with the new collab kit, but my brain is just not in the mood for design creativity.
Parts of the country is being covered in snow, and other parts are getting lots of rain. If you're stuck in the house because of the rain, try having some fun with it. (You can do this with snow too.) Get out your camera and take some photos. In amongst all those raindrops, there are some fabulous photos.
You don't even have to get wet. Just open the window a bit or stand in the doorway with a cover over the top of your lens. Try using the flash and then try the same shots without the flash. Here's another branch that's just outside my door.
Now here it is layered with my texture 8043 and blended with "Hue" mode in Photoshop.
Seeing as how today is Photo Art Friday, I've layered the original photo with "Soft Reflections" texture from Bonnie at PDPA, and again used the "Hue" blending mode.
With all the different free textures available, you should be able to come up with some very pretty wall art. While you're having fun with your photos, you'll forget for a while about the rain.
I think I've finally decided what to pack in my goodie box for Florida. I'm going to pack a supply of Pogo's pee pads and a knitting project. Between that, my laptop, my e-books and my camera I should have plenty to keep me busy. So today I will finish packing up my box and have it ready for mailing tomorrow or Monday.
There really isn't much news for today, so I think I'll make myself a cup of coffee. Mrs has been sleeping peacefully for several hours so hopefully she will feel better today. Gosh, I can't believe how quickly the time has gone by. I'm hoping that Spring will be ready to appear when I get back from Florida. Wouldn't that be nice?
On this note, I'll take my leave. Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
