Coloring

I have occasionally looked at books with pictures to color in the store. But I didn’t want to buy a book with many, many pages of pictures of which I only like a few. Instead I printed a free image from the web to color. My husband wondered if the coloring isn’t meant for children. But, I said, there are free coloring pages for both adults and kids. Hmm, anyway, he thinks it’s a waste of time to sit and color for hours. I say, it’s great therapy, relaxing and fun. I say young or old, doesn’t matter 🙂colored flower basket IMG_3579Cfree printable coloring page from the internet

Ant

ant on flower turned to photo art using Prisma art app.There are ants on some of the flowers in the garden. I wonder how to get rid of them. I read insects don’t like spices. Well, they disappear for awhile but then return. Today I took pictures of them just for fun. As soon as they see me with the camera they hide under both flowers and leaves. They are super fast. None of the pictures were sharp enough. I gave up and turned one to photo art using Prisma art app.

Photographing test

Although I have three digital cameras and in practice always have one or more with me wherever I go, it happens that sometimes I was using my phone camera. A couple of weeks ago I bought a new phone. This new phone has a better camera than the old one. I already have taken quite many photos to test and get used to the camera. Here are three photos I took of Jacky yesterday. He was sleeping but, of course woke. I was testing shooting without a flash in the evening when there is less light. Not bad, but I still need to learn more about settings and etc. I guess I will continue to carry one or more of my cameras with me practically all the time wherever I go 😉

Potato Salad & Spring Tart

Homemade potato salad and mint chocolate cheese cake. Potato salad & sausages are pretty much traditional First of May food here. Well, at least in our family. Sometimes I make the salad myself but mostly I buy it.

The mint chocolate domino cookie cheese cake/tart is one I had had on my mind for quite a time. I actually had planned to make it for Easter but when I saw the yellow mango cheese cake in a magazine I wanted to make it for Easter and decided to make the mint cheese for the 1st of May. Oh my, it is yummy + I’m sure, has trillions of calories ! The one in the picture in the magazine is so beautifully decorated. I tried to make mine look the same. Of course it doesn’t ! But, my family made me feel happy, by saying it to them, really looks nice.

A Few More . . .

jacky-05jacky-06jacky-07 It’s so exciting and I can’t contain myself :)I have just turned some more pictures using the Prisma app. My husband wondered whether I’m going to turn all my photos. Such a silly remark. Of course not. Just playing with it for now trying it out with a few pictures into different styles. But, I must say I love these ones on Jacky 😉

Photo Art

I was all oohs and aahs seeing the photos of a dear friend of mine transformed into beautiful art paintings. I told her they look fantastic. She said, you have to try it, it’s so cool. It’s an app called Prisma and it’s free. I downloaded it right the way. And, I totally agree, it’s so cool and fun. One of my secret dreams has been to have the talent to paint. Unfortunately I have zero talent or skill 😦 but, it has not stopped me from trying 😀 Now, thanks to Prisma, I can use my photos, turn them into art paintings in an instant. Well, I won’t turn all of them just play with some now and them. Cool eh ?
