Clipping Masks

Becky, from Lady Bug Designs has been busy.  She just put a new set of clipping masks into the store at the Digital Design Den.  They are called Over the Edge Clipping Masks and I love them.  I did a bit of work with them tonight.  First the preview, then my two pages.

This was done for a challenge at the Den.  It's a photo of one of my favorite Christmas ornaments.  I got this little angel for my first Christmas in my apartment 18 years ago.  I bring her out every year.  In addition to the clipping masks, I used the Christmas Memories kit also by Lady Bug Designs.

This page was done strictly for fun.  One of our neighbors left his flamingos out in the snow and I had to laugh, they looked so lost.  My photo was unremarkable, but I was able to extract the flamingos and add them to this photo from Flickr.  I used several of the clipping masks, and the kit, Frosty Flakes, also by Lady Bug Designs.

Frosty Flakes - New Kit from Lady Bug Designs

Becky, of Lady Bug Designs, has a new kit called Frosty Flakes.  It is a super kit, just perfect for all your snowy photos.  I had lots of fun with this one today.  You can get it at the Digital Design Den

Here is the preview:

And now for my pages:  The first one is of the bridge in Croghan Park.  It was taken last April during a snow storm that dropped five inches of the fluffy white stuff! 

This one was taken after an ice storm passed through.  The sun came out and everything sparkled.  Fortunately, the ice wasn't too thick and there was not much damage.

This one was taken on the Fernwood Trail in the Nature Realm.  Some people who had gone before had made a snow man.  The poor dear had seen better days.

Next one is a black swan that we saw on the Tow Path earlier this year.  He was a real beauty.  I've never seen one around here before.

And finally, a photo of me on the Tow Path along the Cuyahoga River last year.
