Pictures of cupcakes and pie aren't really something I'd normally want to mess with but I learn something new with each little exercise from my books. A landscape, a candle, a gift, some fruit . . .
Then I make some attempts from pictures I've taken--a local haybarn and one of my daylilies. And a mountain lake from my imagination... an excuse for applying plastic wrap to the boulder in the foreground--such a cool effect!
