Open your hearts

Sometimes we just need to take time for ourselves, look after ourselves, only do what and when our heart tells us. Time to reconnect and appreciate the life we have been given and the beauty around us. Think about what is important in life. Be calm. Grant ourselves peace. Open our hearts and spread our love. And let light into our life.

And remember - When you open your heart you add light to the world. 

This is white roses with texture - for Kim's "Texture Tuesday".

The brief was to use an image centered around the colour white - so here is an all white rose image (except for shadows) overlayed with Kim's texture - "Annabelle" multiplied, levels & brightness adjusted.
Quote came from the back of an envelope!
Along the bottom is a "stamp" pattern that you can download to your "brushes" in Photoshop. Always learning something new!

Have a wonderful week.
