My Three Kids and a Seagull

Their expressions...so them...
Huckleberry

Sunflower
Sometimes I spend more time looking for an acceptable quote than blending textures.  There are no Bible verses about seagulls that I could find, but wings always make me think about freedom.  I cannot fly, but I can stand firm in my freedom in Christ.


This week's Texture Tuesday theme was white and I knew I wanted to see all the gorgeous white images people would be creating, so I pulled this Seagull out of my archives.  But my usual favorite textures and blending modes didn't work on a completely white background.  I finally hit on Granny's Cupboard on Multiply.  Then it wasn't really white anymore, so I lowered the opacity to 50% and masked it off of the bird some.  Now even more than ever I cannot wait to see the other creations.

Wonderful photos of your children, they capture their personalities, and a sense of light in their eyes. Brilliant!

The seagull photo is a beautifully done piece...but what I always enjoy most from you is your children's photos. You always manage to capture the very essence of being a child, and their personalities (at least as I imagine them!). They are always a joy.

your children are beautiful, your photos are wonderful! And I like your white seagull shot... white is not my favorite color to work with, it never feels done for me... so I'm with you, it was interesting to see how everyone was approaching the challenge.
