Still Playing Around

You know - I got this new camera of mine
and I´m still playing around to find out all the settings.

One of the coolest thing is the photo editing program that followed.

just look at this....

I haven´t been able to make frames and edges
on my photos before - and now I can yipeeee.

So - I took a few photos in the studio I wanted to share with you

old wooden spools

a cigar box with my cabinat cards
just waiting to be decorated

a few of my old books

I just love old books...

from my last visit at the flea market
pale pink faux roses - I pulled them apart

These beautiful rose leaves would be perfect as a flower garland

lots of old key holes - perfect for upcoming projects.

I found them at the flea market too.

My latest and biggest bear.
I wanted to take my bears in a new direction
and have been working on a totally new design.
A 9.5 inch bear which is really big for me - ha
I think she came out quite sweet
and I have planned to make a few more big bears.
I hope you enjoyed the photos
I still have so much to learn
but I do have a lot of fun.

Very nice, love the spools, is it the camera or the software that does that? Your bears are so sweet, I am sure any size will be awesome!!!
I am having a giveaway, not that you would need a bear, he he, maybe the pin keep?
