One year when the grandbabykins was playing at the local park, I spied this interesting looking flower/weed? Had never seen one like it before. When I got home, I looked it up, and it is or similar to the Chinese Lantern flower. Since then, I have seen many around the web. Sadly, when I was at the park last year, the flower is gone. I should have tried to take some seeds, but not sure if that is how it was grown. I did see where the Chinese Lantern flowers are grown from a bulb. May try to find some. That is if Spring will decide to warm us up some. Freezing here today.
Hope all are staying well during this social distancing stay at home if that is mandated where you live. We can go out for essential things, but mostly stay at home. So, hence, the looking through the photo archive. 🙂
Happy Tuesday and stay well.

Hope you enjoyed your journey through my photography patch,
This graphic is taken from one of my flowers that I planted this Spring. Using this photo:
and the extraction tool, I removed the flower and made it a .png file. Then I used the filters to adjust the flower more to my liking. I then opened a background texture and dragged the extracted flower onto the texture arranging it how I liked.
Hopefully you can see in the photo above, the extraction tool causes marching ants to be around the part that I want extracted (I call them marching ants..not sure correct term :)). Once you have those, you can right-click and select invert and do the drop down box to new document and then you will have this as a .png. This can then be dragged to any texture, background or wherever you want.
Once I had it dragged to my background texture (one that I found at Kristy’s Life in Reflection), I then used some brushes to add to the background texture.
Hope you enjoyed my Ruby Red Flower extraction tutorial. Would love to hear from you. Have a great rest of the week.
I hope you enjoy my postings here, but each Sunday and Tuesday, you can also find me hosting Sunday Scripture Blessings Link up, and Pictorial Tuesday Link Up over at my at Peabea Scribbles. Would love to have you come visit and share a link.
Thank you for your visit.

My only sketch, profile, of heaven
is a large blue sky,
and larger than the biggest
I have seen in June
and in it are my friends
every one of them.
A lovely blogger by the name of Lisa (Peripheral Perceptions) has tagged me to play along in a 3 Day Quote Challenge. I thought it sounded fun, so here goes.
I chose this quote by Emily Dickenson because it paints a fun and wonderful picture of how heaven might be. I love the wonderful blue skies on a Summer’s day so this one seemed like a good photo that I’d taken to go along with my quote graphic.
Now the fun part too, as part of the 3 Day Quote Challenge that began from a friend of Lisa’s who then tagged me, I am to tag three bloggers who might like to participate. Although the disclaimer is that it’s not mandatory…only if you would like to post a quote for three days. Does not have to be three consecutive days. Then tag three of your blogger friends. That’s it.
So here goes to the ‘You’re Its’ that I’ve chosen.
and as my third choice, all or any of my followers that would like to be in the challenge. Just post a quote, tag three friends, and play along. That’s it…no tag back required.
Also, I didn’t put my graphic logo on my picture above because I thought if anyone would want, just click and save it as your own as a gift from me.
Happy Thanksgiving to those that celebrating tomorrow with family and friends.
Welcome to Pictorial Friday (link up below).
Whether you like to manipulate your photos to look like a painting with software programs or you just love the way the photo looks straight out of the camera, Pictorial Friday would like to see your masterpieces. To me, all photos are master pieces. So each Friday, I’m hosting a linky party to share your photos and mine. 🙂 I love photography and always have since a child. To me, it’s a great way to capture and view things that might be missed with the naked eye, and also to preserve memories. I also enjoy journaling my Bible reading with digital photography.
If you like this action, you can find it here: Studio Zap as a free download at the bottom of that page. I love this action…so easy to use on any photo.
My selection below for Pictorial Friday is of a sunrise this week, September 28th. No editimg added.
Some of the best photos are ones that just capture a great moment.
So, you’re next. Just click on my little froggy friend’s button below and link up to share your masterpieces. There are no definite rules on what photos you share (be nice though and keep them clean), and I would ask that you would visit at least a few of the other’s who have linked up their sites and make some new or old virtual photographer friends.
And feel free to share my button on your post. Thank you.
You’re next so click my little friend to share you blog. Thank you, and hope you’re come back next Friday too. 🙂
Thank you for sharing your photo blogs so I and others can share and make new lovers of photography friends. ❤
~hugs, giggles ‘n blessings~
