Our assignment this week was to create a chalk-look out of a fount. . . . this is my attempt. We were also suppose to apply it to one of our favorite inspirational quotes. I feel this smudged chalk was a perfect fit for this piece. If you have never read the book Hudson Taylor's Spiritual Secret, I highly recommend it. This quote is an excerpt from that book, said by Hudson Taylor. If The Lord chooses to use me for His work, this will be the reason why. If He does not, my pride will, undoubtedly, be the barrier. I pray that I am always as week as this dainty little pansy so that He will be glorified all the more.

Where is the light? Although we live in Florida, I am having the most difficult time finding good light. Our house, probably to make it more energy efficient (easier to coo), has terrible light inside. So, I am always trying different rooms at different times of the day. Our daughters' room (although mostly pink) has the best light! It also has the only south-facing window. Each of these pictures was taken at the same time of day, but processed differently.

Added radial light with a white foreground and Kim Klassen's Sibil Texture once on "soft light" at 50% and once on "mulitply" at about 50%. I also added a few layers of radial light in yellow from the right side, and from the top of the left tomato.
I would love to hear what you think!

I just finished making our children's Valentines for school. And I would LOVE to share them with you! If you would like the template, leave a comment below and I will email it to you.
The template will make two 2.5"x 3.5" flat cards and one 2.5" x 3.5" folded card. All you have to do is change the name for your child(ren). All the layers are completely changeable, so feel free to change colors or fonts. The "V" is for the boys and the "heart" is for the girlie girls : )
I am printing this on 5x7"linen card stock and then cutting them to their proper sizes. Afterward, I will punch wholes in them (one at the top and one at the bottom) and run a red and white lollipop through the wholes. We will give it the finishing touch with a red ribbon. I'll try to get pictures of the finished product up in a few days for all of us visual learners!

To keep me active, grow and learn my craft, I am taking a class. Every week, for the next year, we have a project. This week, the assignment was to just one "stationary" item to photograph from many different angles. My "muse" is still someone stationary, so I chose her. Here is my work. My favorite picture is actually the one where she is not even looking at the camera . . . so sweet.
Any mother knows that we need to be lead, and gently lead at that, as we parent our little blessings.
