Always Time For Photography

"A Peaceful Winter"

I didn't have time this week for painting or rather I never made the time but somehow I always have time to play in photoshop. It feeds my creativity when I cannot find the motivation to get out the paints.

I shot this image last year at the trail near my house after a snowstorm. I used a fab new texture from Kim Klassen and love it! Its called "more magic" and the texture is actually black! Very cool when you use it to layer over an image! I love the words and the distressed look it gives. You can read more about that HERE and even download the texture for free. Kim is very generous with sharing her talent.

I thought this image would make a lovely holiday card so that is what I spent time last night creating. It was alot more fun making my own cards. What a great way to share my inspiration with friends and family.

Hope you are finding time to create, dream, and fill your soul . . .


  1. My best wishes for a happy and peaceful Christmas,for you and yours!
