Chickadee Charm




It's time for Barn Charm *27...

I pulled this from my photo archives...

from a few miles west ~
to my computer~
to Corel Paint~ to Picnik....
Voila!



We spent the weekend in the Black Hills
and didn't stop to photo any unique barns...
but, we did see oodles
of other charmers
such as these darling chickadees....



























Barns and Birds seem 
to go hand in hand...
I didn't think anyone
would mind...

Have a Great Tuesday, friends!

Very nice processing - I'm just starting to play with it (and it feels strange).

How ever did you manage to get such a beautiful, clear shot of that chicadee? They never sit still long enough for me.

Lisa, your barn is just gorgeous. I love the work you did on it. So wonderfully soft!!
Your little chickadee is just precious! We are just beginning to see birds coming back here after the long winter. Such a wonderful sight and sound!

Thank you so much for sharing this today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful day!

Heck no, we don't mind... they're both beautiful, although, I am partial to barns! LoL! =)

I love the swinging doors at the top... great find!

Great texture work, too, & I also use Corel Paint Shop Pro...
