Weekly dose of George: Reflecting

Weekly dose of George
Here is George, who seems to be reflecting on the passing of the old year and the coming of the new. But really, he's scanning the horizon for squirrels who would dare trespass on his territory.
Florabella's retro vintage action coupled with Kim Klassen's October layers texture. Found a cool texture tutorial here, at Shadowhouse Creations. A little different from my normal way of applying, and very interesting.

Geoerge is such a good looking dog, and he looks really friendly and personable too.
I have been playing with textures as well lately, I just recently downloaded some of them from Shadowhouse. It is a cool site and very informative.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful new year!!!

Heh CG, I think you might really be onto something with this new texture-whatever it is...very effective. I am especially fond of George's little list in the bottom left corner: Manicure, Shampoo, Hot Oil...no WONDER he always looks the stunner :>]]

HAPPY NEW YEAR to you & yours & that thar pooch!!!!

The dog is adorable! And interesting choice to merge a texture with the photo.

Just started a photography blog myself so I am glad to lurk and follow for some extra inspiration. Happy to learn!

Blessings,
This Good Life
