w/ Kim

Happy Tuesday my friends! Thanks to the awesome schedule setting on eblogger, I'm able to post this while away for the week. Big hugs to my "go to guy," Austin, for linking me up. You may have heard, I had a pity party HERE

Normally I would NEVER edit when I'm feeling all pooh poohy inside~but this time-I think it worked!

Is it ok to like your own pictures? I mean like "OMG I did that" kind of like? These grow in our front yard & although I'm a nature lover, I'm not good at all at naming flowers.
No texture on this one, just an awesome clone stamp that Kim designed. It felt right as I put out my fair share of tears these days.

This however...

... reminds me of a vintage postcard (swoon) and I couldn't move past the colors as I was playing with the hue. So I went with it. It's crazy "outta my box" fun.
 I will be having fun and getting a lot of use from it. (I'm thinking postcard swap)

Oh...here's the original...

Crazy I tell ya!

I'll be glad to get back home-the one place I never tire of laying my head down at the end of the day. 
Happy (flower naming) snapping!


  1. Yes, that postcard one is divine.

  2. That DOES look like a vintage postcard! I love what you're doing there. Okay, you're going to have to tell me how you're doing your editing. What program? I am not much into the editing but am wanting to use textures so bad...

    It's good to hear from you even though you're away. I hope your week is going well and that you're accomplishing what you need to accomplish. Hugs!

    1. Hey Roban-as soon as I'm back-we'll talk!!

  3. Just like any good artist...it's good to tap into your emotions regardless of where they take you. And as you've proven, it works :)

  4. I LOVE these!!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!!
    Hope everything is going well and that you are back home soon!!!

  5. Each of these is wonderful, Kelly!

  6. Lovely. It is hard to decide but I think I like the second one the best.

  7. these are gorgeous!! and yes it's ok to love your own stuff! i think that's one of the greatest things about photography - that feeling of oh wow - i made that! good stuff!!

  8. All are absolutely fabulous, and I want to know HOW you changed the colors!!!!???? Very cool. I am so glad you love your photos, because I love mine too! That is the heart of an artist:)
