It’s just flurries, but after all our warm weather, what a surprise!!!
I bought this image from Graphic Stock. I think it will make beautiful glass gem pendants!
It’s a Keeper!
I made this necklace to sell, but I think I have to keep it. The cotton cord is hand dyed and painted. That’s one of my very favorite clasps. I made the bail myself from a vintage-looking metal stamping. I like the back as much as the front! The image is decoupaged on the back of a glass nugget, covered with card stock and sealed with Diamond Glaze. I plan on wearing it over a black turtleneck or tee. I’m right proud of me!
Playing with “Paint”
It’s a CD of Victorian Religious Images, and it is lovely. It’s from Lunagirl and can be found, along with other image collections, on etsy.
I love Brandi Hussey’s use of photoshop to pull a palette from a photograph. She has a tutorial on her blog, but my Photoshop software came preloaded on my old Gateway desktop, and when the hard drive died, so did the Photoshop.
I’d used the eyedropper tool in “PAINT” before, so I set out to see if I could use it to “pull a palette.” Before I selected “Open with Paint” from the right hand menu, I made a copy of the image for editing. I enhanced the colors, also, by using the photo editing software on my laptop to increase the saturation of the colors:
Then I used the rectangle, eyedropper, and fill bucket tools to “pull a palette:”
I used the text tool (A) from Paint to add “Holy Bible” to this one:
Today was my first day back at home since I made my “mornings are mine” resolution. Today, I searched for images to make silkies for my crazyquilt Bible covers.
