Lights are all around us, whether we talk about the light of the sun, the street lights, fireworks or those dreamy sunrays in the forest. But are we actually paying much attention to them? Now is the time to showcase all sorts of lights that surround you.

I’m surprised that I’m the first to show a LO about lights. I admit that it is a difficult theme because it is a bit about how to make light visible in a LO. I just happened to have a couple of photos about a city as it turned dark and the lights came on. I used one to make the background with the blend mode set to luminence. And then the 2 other photos with a simple frame with selection borders . I gave the lanterns a little glow and the word LIGHTS also a glow. I found how to do that in the Tips and Tricks book. Further just a couple of embellishments.
My Grandparents used to read this poem to me when I was young. I STILL remember how much terror it instilled in me. My grandfather died when I was eight, but I remember him reading this … and then he would sing me songs to make me feel better before sleeping. Little Orphant Annie by James Whitcomb Riley. I was playing with a whole bunch of yes, you guessed it, dingbat fonts after Carole’s class. This one was from Vintage Frames.
