Seek first the kingdom of God

"See how the lilies of the field grow; they neither toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these."

Something a little out of the ordinary for me, created for a friend who works for the Sisters of Charity.

Just beautiful Mary.

Btw, are your Lily of the Valley as out of control as mine are? It seems they're taking over everything! Last year I ripped some out but they came back stronger than ever this year.

Mary said...

There is no controlling them, Sharon! They have come up through the slate in my front walk, and are trying to populate the macadam driveway. lol

To my soul.

So beautiful. I have a little posy of Lily of the Valley flowers I bought last week to brighten up my desk at work. Their fragrance is so out of proportion to their tiny size. Wonderful passage and timely remninder.

They grow like weeds where you are...? Wow. They sell them for $6.00 a small bundle here.

Hi Mary, I read your comment on the i heart faces blog and thought I would share how to create a brush in photoshop. I use PS CS3.
Creating a brush is pretty simple. Follow the same steps to make the stamp you did in the instructions on i heart faces, but do it on a transparent background with black, then select your watermark (I use rectangular marquis tool) and go to Edit, Define Brush Preset, and then you can name your brush. Just remember to use black when you design your brush, you can change the color when you use the brush. Hope this was helpful.
