Yes this is what I’m doing instead of getting orders done,
cleaning the greenhouses,
opening up boxes of merchandise
that I ordered in January….
and a multitude of things that I won’t keep listing.
You all have similar lists I’m sure….well maybe not exactly the same but lets just say lots to do.
Anyways this is what I do when I want to avoid working.
I had this photo that I took last Fall after visiting a perennial nursery.
While driving home I stopped to visit with the cows on this farm.
Most of them ran the other way as soon as I came
up to photograph them,
except this one.
The grass there must have been extra good in that spot:)
or she’s just more friendly.
It wasn’t a great photo.
so I thought I would try a texture layer from
I did mask off some texture off of Bessie

Then after seeing this post
from Modern Prairie Girl
I decided I’d try something.
I know this looks like she’s sitting too close to Bessie
but I was trying out the idea and didn’t have time to hunt
for something better.
It still didn’t look right so I went back to unpacking.
An hour later I decided to add stronger texture layer
from Shadow House Creations.
I was this close to scrapping the whole thing.
but what’s one more layer going to hurt?
I need more practice and with a better image but for a quicky I’m happy with it.
What do you do when you need a break???
besides blogging : )
