Nature at it’s best.

Welcome back.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and taking the time to like my posts.  It is lovely to get all the feedback about my crafty endeavours.

Today I am combining my photography with my digital art.   Yesterday I took advantage of the beautiful weather to go down to the Hutt River and take some photos.  The scenery is just amazing there and I managed to get some great photos.  Today I have done a very simple artwork with my StoryBook Creator 4.0 and will look at getting this made into a photo panel to hang on the wall.

Hutt River

 

Unfortunately, some of the photo was lost translating from a 6 x 4 image to a 12 x 12 image, but the photo is still great.  I did not want to play around with it too much and lose the great colours and depth of field.

Here is my original photo:

The Hutt River looking towards the Tararua Ranges

 

In the middle of winter I can look back at this image and it will remind me that winter does end and that summer will come eventually.

To create this all I did was use a full-page photo layout and then just added the freebie sentiment.  Took all of a couple of minutes to do.    How simple is this!  And what a great gift it would be as well.  I will look at making this into a card as well and do something very similar.

Incidentally, despite the glorious weather we are still in drought conditions and we have severe water restrictions which may hamper my photography around my little garden – or it may not… I might see some very different and interesting shapes out in the garden before the big dry ends.

Have a great day and happy crafting

Patricia
