Snowy Day

Challenge No. 12 - Nick's pick - WHITE
This little white barn was photographed during the summer in Napa. I decided to tuck it into the snow here. The tree and the birds are PhotoShop brushes. All the rest is texture work, blending textures together to get just the right look.
A total of 5 textures are used. Three from KKlassen, one from Distressed Jewel (her bird brushes, too), and one from FrenchKiss.
I have admired such light, creative work of others and thought this just might be a good challenge to try my own version of this style.

The barn pops a bit more in Lightbox. (and we have had frost now, so it must be winter)

Seriously, it makes me want to bundle up and jump right into the scene. I would be such a tiny speck, probably hiding behind that tree - no, actually I'd probably be climbing that tree : "I believe that everyone else my age is an adult, whereas I am merely in disguise."
