Secrets in the Garden

My one little word for 2011 is define.  I love to use my view through
the lens of the camera to snap reflections of me. I look at this white dogwood bloom and I think, "A blank canvas record my dreams,
secrets, and memories I don't want to soon forget."





Add a secret note to your images:
  1. Start by adding the Postale Texture on the linear burn blending mode and set opacity between 50% and 60%
  2. Add the Georgian Peach Texture on a blending mode of soft light at full opacity!

  6. That is an awesome word to choose! Very creative. I love dogwoods! They're my FAVORITES! I wish we could get one to stay when we plant one though! We planted two a few years ago and they died! :(
