A Relaxing and Creative Evening

A relaxing evening with a couple of my
Godly Girlfriends, Renee and Julie. 

We timed our arrival to
Renee's home so that we could watch the sunset!

This is Renee!

 The chairs were there just waiting for the 3 of us.
Imagine that!

The sunsets in West Texas can be breathtaking!

Life is not measured by how many breathes you take
but by the moments that take your breathe away!
(I didn't see the cross cloud formation while I was snapping)

Then it was too cool to stay out so that means
it is time to eat, of course.

Special diets and a Daniel fast called for
fresh fruit and veggies.

 I wasn't on a special diet or fasting so
I had a salad with baby spinach, chicken and
glazed pecans topped with my new favorite salad dressing.

Then time to play with my Gelli Plate.


What fun!
We laughed and shared our hearts:
our struggles and our concerns for loved ones.

We may not have closed our eyes and bowed our heads,
but with Jesus in our midst we have this confidence -
The Lord will perfect that which concerns me;
Your mercy, O Lord, endures forever; Psalm 138:8

I know whom I have believed and am persuaded that
He is able to keep what I have committed
to Him until that Day.
2 Timothy 1:12

Thanks for dropping by!

Beyond Beyond Week 1

 Photography, F-stops, ISO, White Balance,
Photoshop, CS6, Textures, Layers, Crop, Enhance...
Sound like Greek? Kim Klassen's classes (say that 3 times, fast)
are just the ticket. Last year I was part of her Beyond Layers.
Well, maybe not part...more like lurk.
I paid my money but just did not participate.
I always looked to see
what everyone else was creating or saying, but not me.

I signed up again this year for Beyond Beyond. This was the Week 1
assignment. I started off a week behind, so here we go.
One subject, still life or whatever, just don't move it around.
It is photographed from several angles.
 I have to say this was fun. My favorite is the middle one.
I like the angle and the title on the book. My friend, Renee gave me the
book to tear up for some of my mixed media art. I had not
noticed the title until I decided to use it as a prop for this.
I used Kim's texture minus43 in soft light
