A "Recipe" to warm you up~

I don't know about you but I'm ready for spring! I am missing my flowers and butterflies so I thought I would look at last years. I found one but felt it needed a bit of warmth. Would you like to know my "Recipe" for warmth??? I opened Photoshop elements. Then opened LOVETHATSHOT Botanical Veils. There were so many choices. I could of spent all day playing. I finally decided on this beautiful edit. I opened the White clover Veil - In the Blending mode of photoshop I chose to "overlay" Playing a little more (because the veil's are so addicting) I opened the Cotton Grass veil and blended it with "soft light". As you can see in my before and after image the veils added a bit of warmth to the original image. I think with all the snow most of us are getting the "Warmth" is exactly what we need. :) Head over to to look at their veils!!!

Looking back at my work. This was one of my first published flowers. Seems so long ago. (2009)

I really didn't know much about photography. This was shot with my Sony camera and a 75-300 lens.
