I'm... Dreaming . . .



. . . of a white pinkish Christmas!

Okay, well, I do live in Texas and on the Gulf coast for that matter...so....that's pretty unlikely, right?

This is the last Photo Art Friday until January 2013, AND this week
was the last Texture Tuesday until next year as well. What's a girl to do?

The prompt suggestion was to link up our best work, one that we would be proud to
display on the cover of a coffee table book. Awww geez, that's too hard to pick and I have to
say I might have a bit of a commitment problem...can't even use a hot glue gun on a craft
project, because you never know when you might want to take something apart and use it on
something else....it's the frugal part of me I guess.

But, I was playing around with a photo I took last year at Christmas and really like how it
turned out. These are Bald Cypress trees, that were not bald yet, and their texture was perfect in my post-processing for getting the look of snow I wanted.



"Walking in a Winter Wonderland"

As far as unlikely, it did snow the first year we moved here, during a Christmas choir concert.
Yes, miracles do happen! ; )  And just in case you're wondering....it was white!

Enjoy your weekend! I have boxes of Christmas stuff waiting to be transformed into decorations.
What about you?

Love, Kim
XO

kim it is 1:38 in the morning, and seriously, I am here laughing my head off at your post. It is a bit different in Texas isn't it. I do love your white, pinkish christmas. I just did a post today with fake snow. LOL

OH I am loving your processing on this. It is now a work of art. Beautifully done.

Kathryn said...

Great processing, very Christmasy. Lots to do this weekend, get the lights on the trees and decorated, pick up my first check from the gallery that sells my work (yay) and take hubby shopping for new work togs (he's worse than a woman when it comes to clothes shopping, I usually get security checking me out for standing outside the changing room so long)!!!

Perfection!

Oh, I love this - very creative processing! Your glue gun comment made me smile. :)

P.S. We're in the same boat - I have boxes of Christmas decorations sitting here staring at me. I guess I better do something with them. Have a great weekend, Kim!

Oh, I LOVE your faux-pink Christmas dream! You have turned this scene into a magical snow globe - those trees are perfect to set a winter mood - looking like they are covered with the white stuff. Wonderful, wonderful post-processing!
