Snow Patrol

SNOW! SNOW! SNOW! And MORE SNOW! Just when I thought it had all gone, it came back. Anyway I decided to go out in my garden again. I love experimenting with unusual abstract shots. I haven’t done much editing on them other than ‘auto colour’ on PhotoShop. Let me know what you think guys xxxx

Using My Scanner To Make Art!

In the lead up to Christmas, I thought I would do some festive images that get people in the Christmas mood. I’ve still tried to make my images as quirky and different as I usually do. I used Christmas decorations and scanned them into my scanner with the top open and then I did some PhotoShop editing. Please tell me what you think!

Christmas Card Project Finished

These are some of the cards I gave to my relatives. I’ve spent more time on these ones and made them extra special. I really hope they like them, I’ve worked hard on them. As you may have noticed I’ve used my winter photography to enhance the originality of the cards.

There are still more cards to put on my blog however you may seem them at a later point to keep it a surprise to my relatives. However I’ve now FINISHED my Christmas card project. I’ve really enjoyed it and learned new skills and improved!

Making the most of the bad weather!

I’ve been working on some more photography this weekend and wanted to make the most of the snow. I was lucky because today the snow has started to melt a bit.

I think the snow has given me a fantastic opportunity and making the most of my photography. It makes a nice change to take pictures in the snow instead of for example the sun.

I hope you like my pictures, please feel free to comment on them = )

More snow!!!!!!!

Yes we’ve had more snow in New Marske. I woke up this morning and looked out the window and more snow had fallen. I was supposed to be going to a cooking class tomorrow however because so much snow has fallen it’s been cancelled. I bought £20 worth of cooking ingredients as well; maybe I’ll make the recipes at home!

Because I’ve been stuck inside yesterday and today I’ve been working on some party games for my Christmas party. I’ve also been in the garden taking winter pictures again. By the way the women in the picture is my Mum, she was also taking pictures!!
