From Dull to Beautiful


I was meandering through the house taking some random shots. One was of the three big fat yellow candles on my coffee table in front of the big window. The image itself is rather dull, but I liked the yellow color. So I went through my textures until I found one that I thought would do "some magic" - and it did (Bonnie's texture "evelyn inspired" in hard light at 60%). It turned a dull photo into an image that I could use for a Christmas card! I guess this will be in my Etsy shop soon!

This is for August Break 2012 (#16 already!) and Bonnie's Photo Art Friday.

That would make a nice card, especially with those red berries.
