I hope you all had a great Fourth of July! Our plans changed a bit yesterday due to Cortney not feeling up to par. But we did manage to swim a bit in our pool at home and have a BBQ. It was a quiet, uneventful day, but a good one.
I have a garden peas card to share with you. I figured since I had already made a "lettuce" card, why not make a card about peas? ;)
I used this image from the Crafty Secrets Vegetable Garden Digital set.
I again used my Inktense pencils to give my peas their vibrant green color. I added touches of yellow for highlights and a bit of black to create shadows and depth.
I cut out the peas by hand, and once again added a bit of gold Stickles for a bit of sparkle. I also added black waxy twine to create tendrils for my peas. And as a final finishing touch, I threw a few sequins on for fun!
Some of you inquired about my new camera. Well, I had intended getting a super duper expensive NikonD3, but ended up with a lesser expensive NikonD7000. I was upgrading from a NikonD40. It had been a good camera for the last 7 years, but getting to be unreliable. I was having issues with focusing. For awhile I didn't know if it was me or the camera. Turns out it was the camera!
I am loving this new camera and am taking pictures of anything I can. The dogs seem to be the easiest to photograph....but then there is my dear Cortney. She is a pretty willing participant most of the time!
Here's a few more....just playing around!
And this one seriously cracks me up! She has the cutest expressions ever!
I am heading to Wisconsin to see my niece and nephew....and I can't wait to use my camera on 'em! ;)
New subjects! YAY!
Have a great weekend!!
