I was so glad to see this Monarch Butterfly stopping for some livelihood. Monarchs have been scarce around here lately so was fun to see their return, and I’ll hate to see them go when the winter months arrive.
Sharing one of my painted textures. I used this one behind the butterfly picture above. You can download it HERE without my logo. I hope you enjoy using it.
Would love to see how you use it in one of your photos by linking up with Pictorial Friday.
Note: the ribbon on my framed photo is from French Kiss Collections. She makes lovely textures and other items. If you subscribe, she does have some freebies.
After a divorce our son had to move back home for a bit. While here, he purchased bulbs and planted these Lilies. They have multiplied over the years and are getting so tall. Every Spring it is a delight to watch them finally open up to reveal their amazingly beautiful red color. He couldn’t have picked a better color as it is one of my favorites. That son has since remarried and moved to California, but my eyes love looking at him through these flowers each year. I miss him, but what a great reminder of the wonderful man (son) he has turned out to be. Such a loving heart.
I did transplant some of the bulbs early this Spring and was glad to see they have also made it and are blooming.
This is the first year that I’ve had any Hosta. It finally bloomed, but didn’t all open at once. Loved the color though. Read more about Hostas here.
I applied my pb_mavemadness texture with overlay at 100%, then I added Kim’s kk_Rejoice at 46% opacity and Fill of 5%, Bevel & Emboss & Texture that is in the adobe program. Then I took it to Adobe Pemiere Elements and framed it.
Thanks, hope you enjoy and have a great day no matter what you’re drinking. I’m a coffee in the morning type person, and maybe some Cranberry Blood Orange Tea once in a while. Especially love Iced Tea with fresh sliced oranges on a hot Summer afternoon.
I’ve been trying my hand at creating some textures, and haven’t worked out exactly how to share them; as a packet or individual yet. But, here is one that I’m starting with. It is called Fantasy. You can download it here. Hope you enjoy this one. Will be sharing more soon.
