It’s interesting how nature is one of the best creators of BEFORE and AFTERS.
While participating in this weeks Metamorphosis Monday with Susan and Mary at Little Red House and her Mosaic Monday, I thought I could actually participate with both showing Mother nature at her best!!
Many of you may recognise this sweet beauty from a previous post (click here). This was taken in wet early spring.
Little bit of a different angle…ok I know next time I will be more particular about my positioning… but notice how with a little bit of sunshine and a lot of summer rain, and from the looks of it a care taker who sincerely loves their home, Mother Nature at her best in the AFTER. If you will look VERRRY careful you will see a slumbering white kitty on the porch bench. “shhhh”
In a way, I have always thought myself creative… I don’t know if I would’ve every called myself an artist, but since seeking my true authentic self lately, I do think I have some artistic flairs. HOWEVER… one thing I have always wanted to be wonderful at and am NOT, is a water color painter.
Well……… I found something to assist my water color adventures.
Take one of my favorite Pink roofed cottages….
In Elements, or yes, Photo shop (so I am told because I don’t have this costly beast you can too be a water color artist.
Just go to Filters Click — Artistic then water color ….and Voila` the Above.
Now for a much closer version to show off the water color feature … Dang I even think Susan Rios would be proud!
Enjoy your week– start on your own Dipity Road finding your true authentic self!
