I am posting a card for all my blogger friends that I have met this year. This has been an interesting year in that I have discovered Kim Klassen and all her wonderful textures and in doing so, I met all these marvelous women artists thru her linky parties. I wish I could meet all of you in person and just absorb all the magical artistic energy that would be found in that room. I can see how the "Shutter Sister's Camp" gave Kim and probably every woman there a super dose of art magic. When you are in the environment and the energy is in the air you can just feel it in your pores.
I am wishing you all a fabulous holiday season and most certainly a glorious New Year. What will the new yr. bring? Or better yet, what will we find to inspire us and what will we make the new year? I don't do resolutions but I do believe that if you write down your dreams you may be surprised how many things you made happen just by putting them out into the universe. What will be on your list?
I used several of Kim's textures on this I think I used Cosmo, Inspired Magic and the day 8 texture "Storm". Thank you Kim for giving us the gift of "Twelve Days of Texture".
12 Days of Texture
Thursday, December 15, 2011
This shot was taken on my last trip home for mom's 94th birthday. I should not admit this but it was taken on the I-84 out the window at 65 mph with my iPhone. I took photos all along the way. The trees were gloriously golden and the dusting of snow on the hills was so pretty. I don't like to travel the 250 miles by myself in the winter but had no choice on this trip. There was snow at the farm but was gone and replaced by 50 mile an hr. winds on my way home several days later.
I used today's texture "Edward" on this and had edited it earlier with one of the "Magic Scratches" textures.
Thank you Kim for giving us such wonderful gifts.

This is the start of Kim's 12 days of Christmas. She so generously is giving away a texture a day for us to use. How wonderful is that!! I used her texture for today called "Lilly" for this edit. This is an old christening gown that belongs to my sister in law, she let me bring it home so that I could photograph it. I love the little gown and the pretty pink bow on the hanger. I went in search of a teddy bear to use in the photos but found a cute white bunny instead, I think he works pretty well with the dress and the old chair. I used two layers of Lilly one on soft light and the other on multiply, then I added scratched magic in screen mode, I love how the scratched magic gives the work an old print look. Hope everyone is having the start of a wonderful week. Check out The Cafe` for more uses of the new texture called "Lilly". Thanks Kim.
12 Days of Christmas.
