Metamorphosis Of My Photo

 

image

image

I can’t tell you all the steps I used (sorry Sad smile) .

But I did use Kim Klassen’s new texture

Stained Linen @ 100% Soft Light 

I found a few things I had never used and know

exactly nothing about.

It sure was fun experimenting with them.

Flowers and A Big No No

 

image

A cloudy day, an old chair and some flowers in my backyard.

 

image

These are my pretty pressed wood chairs.

They had gotten pretty dirty.

 

image

So in all of my infinite wisdom

I Powerwashed both of them!!!

The dirt came off but so did the paint.

 

image

The powerwashing was NOT a good idea!

I don’t think that wonderful chalk paint could save these

So, now I have two---

“New” rustic pressed wood chairs.

2010-05-02

There is no doubt about “dogs” ruling here at Thoughtfully Blended Hearts!

There is always something to giggle about...

even if it is a dog “butt”..

Most days we have white squirrels and grey squirrels

stealing bird seed from the feeders.

Zoe can sing us a song as we work around “Thoughtfully Blended Hearts”.

Grandpuppy Sassy is quite capable of watch “duty”...

alerting us to any “squirrel attack”.

Zoe is the pro when it comes to photography duty...

she sniffs out the very best photo locations!

about getting cute pics for the blog.

Our CEO, Mr. Buddy, keeps everyone on time and in place.

Would you dare be late when you know those eyes will be scolding you?

Mr. Buddy, CEO, is also Mr. Photogenic here at TBH.

You can always count on him for a pensive moment.
