Brittney over at the Phaunt forum has started a blog called Unnoticed Beauty. Her goal is to post an image a week regarding the beauty she finds in everyday things. So with that in mind I went out in the cold this morning looking for beauty in my own unnoticed world. I found a frost covered Camellia flower freezing in my front yard.
I give you my version of... winters petals.
I did very little processing. Selectively sharpening just the center. I added the sugar plum fairy texture from my 12 days of Christmas give-away. I changed the textures blend mode to soft light, bumped the yellow up a tad and added a vignette.
So my wish for you is to go out and find the unnoticed beauty in your everyday world.
On a separate note... No, I have not fallin off the face of the earth. LOL!
I am teaching an Beginner Elements class the last 2 weeks of January and I have been working on my lesson plans. Hopefully, I come up with a few goodies to share here. Hope the new year is treating you with lots of love.
A tip before I go. Do you know that you can use Ctrl + to zoom in on most web pages that you view. Try it on my blog. I do this all of the time. Some blogs fits nicely on my screen and some, I like the font a little larger. It works great when trying to read forums also. =)
