Simplicity

One of the things I've been wanting to do is improve my still life captures. I think I've already learned some valuable tips in the Beyond Layers class. I am practicing some of these new concepts in these images....keeping it simple!

Another thing I've been having fun with is experimenting with various fonts and adding some scripts to my images. In both of these images I am using a font called Scriptorama. Great Fun!
