Mosaic Monday - Valentine's Day

I have been working on my digital photography editing skills. (One of my goals for 2017)  I started out with an image I put together while I was working on a challenge on my Flickr group.  I have been gathering texture images and I was fortunate that my sister gave me a piece of cheese cloth last time I was there so I took a photo of it against black and white backgrounds.  The other layer that I added was an image of a frozen pond with horizontal textures.  This week I learned how to create an editing mask so that I can reveal my main elements through the 2 textures I had applied over them.  Wishing everyone a nice Valentine's Day.

I was out to visit my Mom and Dad on the weekend and I shared with her my Tea Cup Coaster project.  She donated several small pieces of fabric toward the cause.  I really enjoy making them. Now I have a good variety of fabric designs to ensure they are all unique.

This was breakfast this morning.  A cup of Raspberry Thriller tea in a small bone china teacup set.  Rye bread toast with peanut butter and Raspberry Jam.  I used one of the napkins I received from Margie at Tea in the Valley in her blog give away.  Pink was the color scheme and it fit right in.  I placed a Battenburg lace heart at the top of the placemat which has a saying about grand daughters. A pink stained glass angel set in a wooden base stands at the top of the place setting.

I am joining Maggie who hosts Mosaic Monday #27.
