playing around with my photos

I took some pictures of my front door wreath and played around to give it  a watercolor  look

Sepia is a tone I like, as it gives some pics a dreamy or romantic  type quality.
Origins - produced from the ink of the sepia cuttlefish.  Originally used as a watercolor pigment.
This one a little too sepia maybe

I trimmed my box to hug my statue.   I do like playing around in shaping my boxwoods.


  1. I love the watercolor effect in the first picture,it would make a beautiful subject for a stained glass window.
    I like to use sepia effects to give some photos a vintage feel,it is softer than just black and white.

  2. You have some wonderful pictures here, I wish I was better at working with my photographs. I love the way you trimmed your boxwood, it's just lovely!

  3. Beautiful photos! Love playing around with the many options! The watercolor effect looks lovely - I am partial to the sepia tones too!

  4. I love what you've done here! The Madonna is beautiful!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  5. i enjoyed my visit here - I am originally from Va. - born in Hampton and graduated for York High at Yorktown!

  6. Love your wreath and watercolor. Love your boxwoods, Fun!
    have a super week end!

  7. I really must experiment more with my photos. Your pictures look great!

    Hope you have a lovely week.

    Best wishes,
