Share Your Cup - This Week
I'm working through the stack of fabric and I have bought a few pieces of solids in order to create coordinated pieces for sale in the spring.
I am working on a car litter bag as well. More about in a later post.
This is an exercise of laying a texture image over a photo. The texture image was very subtle but by using the color option in the layers menu with a percent between 65-80 percent I was able to create vintage looking images from very vibrant and colorful photos of flowers.
The image was too subtle for the look I was trying to achieve so back to the camera to take more shots.
It changed how he looked at things. When you start looking for an opportunity to be grateful many good, happy, wonderful things come to you. I'm sure they were there all along but looking for them brought them into focus.
He looked up teachers from high school in order to write a note about how he was encouraged by them when he was younger.
He was doing the exercise in 2007 and I would say that greeting cards have fallen quite out of use in the last decade. The idea is still there. Exercise gratitude and express it in whatever form works in this day.
