* Texture Tuesday *

Another Tuesday came and so is Texture Tuesday over at Kim Klassen Cafe. This week we had to use serendipity, I used it on 2 layers and also paper stained music from Kim. I started out with an action from Coffeeshop Butterscotch vintage. Put it all together, run another coffeeshop action Barista no wait. On top of this I put the previous end result and set the layer to multiply 39%.
Had great fun with it.

* project life week 16 *

It has been a very long time ago since i last posted a layout I did for Project Life. I am still keeping up though at times it's difficult to find something to photograph specially on a daily basis. Guess my life isn't too exiting ;) Sometimes I even find myself thinking that I still need to photograph something and how I want to quit it. Butttt, still going for it, because I think it will be a great album and that seems enough motivation (for this moment) to keep it going.
Thankfully I have had some extra days off because of Easter and I have some spare time to try to do some catching up, because I am running a little behind my weekly Lo's... :(
Firstly I started with last week because that one is reasonably fresh in my memory. I used Irish Princess a collab kit from meghan mullens & cindy schneider plus a little out of Springs a hoot by meghan mullens. Available at Sweet Shoppe Designs. I used a template by Yin.
I removed the text because some of it was too personal to post.

* Day 10, I made it to one third !!!!*

Day 10 has arrived and I am still keeping up, so I am proud of the results so far. Today was again a beautiful warm and very very sunny day. I was out for a walk and took my D90 along and made quit some photo's, but this one is my favorite. I love the light, the grean and the brightness of this photo. A perfect reflection on how sunny it is today.
How is your easter weekend?? Mine is fine. One more day to go.
Have a nice sunday.

* Day 08 of 30 days of spring *

This is my day 08. It's a part of a flower arrangement for Easter, but of course I always take total shots, but I also am very fond of the details because I think those pictures are mostly better than the total overview. Well the Easter weekend has started. The weather is very warm and unusual for the time of the year in holland. It's 27 degrees outside!!

Enjoy your extra days of and the nice weather :)

* 30 days of spring day 05 & 06 & 07 *

Ok, I am back with Day 5 for 30 days of spring photo's. For this one (straight from my point and shoot) I used a texture by Kim Klassen and this is also my entry (first one :) of Texture Tuesday. Had great fun with it. I took this shot during one of my evening walks. It an advantage to have enough light to shoot by hand in the evening after work.
Day 06 (20 april) originally the colors were very bright but I like this muted vintage look of the lovely flowers, used again some textures from Kim Klassen (chamomille & peeling paint)
Day 07 (today) Early risers get nice light. This shot was taken in the morning with my Nikon D70S. I simply love the morning sunrise glow which I intensifed a little. Love it when I can take some photos in the morning already before heading off to work. It's a good way to start a normal working day.

* 30 days of Spring Day 01 & 02 & 03 *

On internet I found a photo challenge, 30 days of spring, read all about it here or click on the linky in the sidebar. And besides all the things I am already doing, I am trying my hand at this. I will try to make a photo for this each day, but posting each will be difficult, also becose I want to work a little on them before posting. I was also a hobby of mine a long time ago, to work on the photo's and seems I am slightly going back to it at the moment ;)

So here are my photo's of the first 3 days.

Here is my Day 01 (15 April). It was a misty morning and because of that combined with the sun, gave some nice shots. This is one is with my point and shoot camera and I love it.

Day 02 (16 april) Some beautiful white blossoms (don't know the name, I only admire their beauty :) ) passed me by today. Again a photo from my point and shoot on Macro stand. (maybe this is even better than DSL for macro's)

Day 03 (17 April). I saw some beautiful grape hyacinths and with the green of the grass and the yellow of the dandelions it really gives that splash of spring colors.

The weekend is over and back to work on monday.

* living statues *

Took some lovely shots of the statues today. Thankfully it wasn't too hot. Cannot imagine that it would be nice, with the sun under all that make up.
