WanderlustRio de Janeiro, Brazil with typography “Not all who wander are lost”

I love how the sunlight illuminates the clouds and reflects off the water!!

midsummer dream {e.b.b.

A photo of beautiful foxgloves in our gardens. I really like how the flowers cascade down the stalk and decided I would like to add some text on top of the photo that mimicked that same effect. This Elizabeth Barrett Browning quote seemed totally appropriate with a wonderful life-lesson message. The text was warped/skewed in Photoshop, which was a bit of a feat, since I know that Illustrator would have been the software to use. Unfortunately I am not familiar with the ins and outs of Illustrator! And of course texture layers were added! Hope you like it!

Summer magic — lightning bugs and daisies

A photo from my garden…which did not look like this at the time. The lightning bugs were, amazingly, added to a lighter exposed photo of this section of the garden. Many different layers of textures were also added, and center fill lighting provided that moonlit glow to the daisies. I often stay outside in the gardens past dusk, and this is exactly how I want to remember this magical time between day and night.

The original photo was very hazy, and in my efforts to clarify it, many texture layers plus a lens flare were added to the photo for muted color and interest. This end result reminds me of an image you would find in a vintage encyclopedia.
