Photo Shop Color and Pattern

White Sage 

 I managed to get back to working in Photo Shop I am still in the learning curve stage, but thankfully some things are coming back since the last times I worked on some images with textures and frames. So here are some examples of Photo Shop work I played with and outcomes.

* Images can be clicked on & enlarged

White Sage with texture over image

You can see the photographs look very different by changing the effects and textures. I have come across a website with a series 31 days to a better photo. Darcy has all kinds of tips and some with Photo Shop. You can visit her here for the series @ 3Boybarians.

Color Palette Inspiration

I took these photographs of the white sage blooming before we were going to cut off the flower tops to spur growth of the white sage plant & shared it when I did a post on purple and green back on May 26th. You can see the original photograph here.

Pattern made with color inspiration

I hope you are finding a  little creative time in between all your goings on this summer. I have a few new photos I will be working on in other colors, but they needed more work prior to sharing. This is the last week of swim lessons & piano for Sammie and then we are free to travel. I will post when I am going.

Do you have a favorite Photo Shop or Photography web site you like? What is your favorite color?

Happy 4th of July

Happy 4th of July! Taking a little blogging break! Today we have planned a family barbecue for the evening. Then in the next few days an escape to the beach, a trip to the pool, barbecue and fireworks on the 4th! I hope you have a safe and wonderful holiday weekend. I'll be back after the holiday with some color inspiration on Tuesday. Until then here is a little Pinwheel freebie I came across.

The link above for is for the freebie, printable and tutorial on how to make one! Just in case you have time I thought you might enjoying popping over to All sorts to grab it and make one.
Don't you just love pinwheels?

Sammie having fun at the pool, those swim lessons are paying off!
See you Tuesday!
