Christmas in the Heart

It's Christmas in the Heart

This is my submission for Day 4 of the "12 Days of Textures" at Kim Klassen's blog. The texture today is called "Edward"...I used it first in Soft Light mode at 100% and then with Multiply at 100%. The backdrop is actually a piece of cardboard from a shipping box. I need to start learning indoor photography, and finding the proper backgrounds for my image are a challenge. Any tips or advice are warmly welcomed! I liked this quote by W.T. Ellis, so I added it to my image. Have a good day, everyone...take a few minutes to just stop and breathe during this hectic holiday season. (I need to heed this advice myself, which is why I typed it out in the hopes it would register in my brain!)


  1. oh yes..... love the quote.... such a wonderfully warm and nostalgic piece you have created.....

    thanks for joining the 12 day texture party.
    xo, Kim

  2. This IS wonderful. Very crisp and clear, warm, and you could not have picked a better quote. Simply beautiful.

  3. Glad to hear someone else uses packing boxes as backgrounds! Once I even used my pajamas as a backdrop . . . anything goes! I LOVE this image! You managed to photograph the Santa without harsh shadows, place him kindly off center, and the quote is perfect,too! I love how Kim's textures add so much interest to the background.Thanks for sharing.
