Photography in Crafting

As we meander a Path of Positivity, we are challenging you to enjoy some Quiet Time and share with us how you do that!  

I really enjoy being outside and spending quiet time out in the barn.  I also enjoy photography and seem to feel very peaceful when photographing flowers, horses, barns and such.

So, I decided to make a Christmas Card with this photo I took back in April with the snow covering the new spring blossoms!  

*   *   *  
I framed my photo with Bubbly Circle Frame Doodle from Tindaloo.  Instead of coloring, I decided to try something different.  I pulled out all my shades of pink, clear, and gold glues/liquid pearls and colored in the circles using them!  

The sparkly pinks and gold made for a wonderful frame!   I added some black Stickles to the inside dots.  My sentiment is from Cricut Print and Cut.  A gold strip and bow finish off the card!

   We'd like to hear your ideas at Path of Positivity!  Come share them with us!  

Remember, you may share any sort of artistic medium over at PoP:  writing, cards, journals, scrapbooking, painting, sewing, baking, needle crafts, etc as long as it is positive!  The theme is always optional.
