This statue is one of the muses from Greek Mythology.  I added some textures from Shadowhouse Creations and played w/ the topaz simplify filter.  I also added a frame.

You’re a mean one, Mr Grinch

You really are a heel!

You’re as cuddly as a cactus

You’re as charming as an eel,

Mr Grinch!

Doesn’t he just look like a Grinch??




255. Relaxation

Duke must be one relaxed dog!  Laying there licking up brown sugar, and then when he is done with that he can start in on the house and tree…I think I’d go for the M&M’s first!  What a life (and what a sugar high)!

254. Far From Home

I am always jealous of all of your lighthouse pictures….unfortunately, there are no lighthouses on  sandpits here in Omaha!  lol    I would normally have to go very far from home to get a lighthouse pic, but yesterday I had my chance….who cares if it was made of gingerbread and candy!

253. Christmas Cactus

After seeing Mike’s gorgeous flower image, I decided to try his processing method.  I did my normal edits in PSE9, then applied the topaz simplify – colorful painting preset- then instead of playing w/ the opacity as Mike did, I used the multiply blend mode.  Finally I ran the high pass sharpening on it and made the frame!  Thanks for the processing idea Mike, see…..you inspired ME!  🙂

The Reason for the Season

Can you imagine making this out of gingerbread, frosting and candy??  Unfortunately, I am not this talented!
