Late Visitors to My Flowers

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.

Our son and daughter-in-law took us out on their boat for a ride on a beautiful, fall-like day. The air was warm, and just breezy enough. So naturally, I had to take along my camera.

The leaves are just beginning to turn so got couple shots of the trees around the reservoir. 

Then they treated me and hubby to lunch. Best kind of day when can spend it with the kids. 🙂

The photos, the only touch up that I did was to enhance them some in the Adobe Photoshop program. I use Elements 12.
Look forward to your sharing of some of the fun photography you took this week or just whenever. Always fun to see what others are shooting.

leaf-frame-clipping-mask
Sharing a Leaf Clipping Mask that you add a picture too and use as is or add to a photo or however you choose. I created it in Adobe Photoshop Elements 12 from a photo of a leaf, but should be able to use in other versions of Adobe and hopefully other programs.

The download is HERE

Just add your photo and then drag it below the leaf frame layer and it should automatically be displayed under the leaf cutout. Enjoy, and I would love to have you share in comments or on your linkup how you used this, but if not, that’s okay too. You can use however you like, credit given would be nice, but not necessary.

Below is example of how I used the leaf:

Most already know how to do a clipping mask, but thought I’d share below an example for those that are new to clipping masks.

Pictorial Friday Linky Party ~ Sept 30th

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.

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.

Enjoying the last flowers of the summer. I had the grandson today, and he helped me go down the road and pick some wild flowers as well as a few still blooming in my flower bed. This time of year though, I could call it a weed bed as I’m just not that much of a green thumb and bore of taking care of them by this time of the season. Next year, my goal is just flower pots…easier to weed and maintain. lol

My sharing for Pictorial Friday. You’re next so I hope you will link up and share your photography.

Click the little froggy below and follow the prompts. Thanks and have an awesome week-end.
