Take time to play!

Pelicans-001

I took a bit of time to play in My Digital Studio yesterday.

Recently, I was lucky enough to see these beautiful American White Pelicans near my home in Wisconsin.  Pelicans in Wisconsin?  Yep … these once-scarce, pouched birds are now appearing in ever-growing numbers in Wisconsin.

What do pelicans have to do with creating?  They are inspiring & bring beauty into MY personal creativity.  Take the time to play.  Find inspiration in what you love and use it in YOUR style of creating – whatever it may be!

I hope you enjoyed this share.  If you want to see more of my photography, please like my Facebook page here – THROUGH THE EYE OF A REBEL.

P.S.  You may have noticed that my blog title has changed.  A little re-branding going on to better fit my passions.

On this 8 1/2″ x 11″ page, I used two of my photographs for an artsy effect, one on top of the other using the opacity tool.  The third layer is an MDS overlay (Modern Medley, Birds).

In the new year, I plan to start drinking tea.  I am excited to try the varieties that Tea Forte offers & indulge in a little “me” time each day.
