Last year, we started the Elf on the Shelf tradition. As the instructions go, each person is to name his or her elf. The boys have dubbed ours simply Al. Al watches the boys during the day and then travels back to the North Pole to report to Santa each night. If they have been good, Al returns with a small gift from the North Pole. However, if they have been bad, they awake to an empty stocking. And, yes, there have been a few mornings where Al showed up empty handed. The crafty thing about Al is that he hides in a new spot every morning. Today, we found him perched high upon our sea turtle. Al’s a festive elf who looked great atop the turtle. Had to share!
I liked this shot so much, I wanted to play around with the processing a bit. So, I pulled out a photo I took of our Christmas tree with my Lensbaby Composer lens and star aperture and layered it over the original. I love the stars with the flag background and the vintage processing. Such fun!
I know I’ve fallen behind on my posts and my photo challenge submissions! I’ve been in class the past three days learning about PhotoShop and Camera RAW. My brain has been on overload from all the techniques I have learned. This makes my second PhotoShop course with a third to follow in November. I’m also currently taking a course called Vision and Discovery on Wednesday nights. Other courses this semester will include: Adobe Lightroom, Large Format Printing, Photographing Children, Photographic Lighting, and Adobe Illustrator. I’m loving my courses and love even more being able to immediately use what I’ve learned! Oh–I also got a new lens (wide angle) and a Lensbaby Composer, which creates lots of fun effects. New posts will be coming soon….
