The Wishing Well at Gage Park

This kit, Beside the Pond designed by Lauren Bavin, is just gorgeous for this type of LO. I took this photo last week "Beside the (Gage Park) Pond".
Journaling: The wishing well is a term from European folklore to describe wells where it was thought that any spoken wish would be granted. The idea that a wish would be granted came from the idea that water housed deities or had been placed there as a gift from the gods, since water was a source of life and often a scarce commodity. Water was seen to have healing powers. People believed that the guardians or dwellers of the well would grant them their wish if they paid a price. After uttering the wish, one would generally drop coins in the well. That wish would then be granted by the guardian or dweller, based upon how the coin would land at the bottom of the well

A Winter Sunset by Scrapping4him

CindyT's gorgeous LO Best Friends is so deserving of a scraplift and I'm glad Lauren chose it for her Gimme a Copy Challenge. I paired up two challenges with my LO, also using Lauren's stunning Beside the Pond kit to scrap this sunset photo taken from our porch.
LO Notes:
1) I duplicated the bayou bg paper and flipped one copy vertically, then used a gradient mask to utilize both dark portions for my backdrop paper
2) I set the basic black filled border on the worn_wood_green bg papers to a soft light blend mode
3) I duplicated the cardboard frame, setting the top copy to a color burn blend mode, then duplicated this set for a second set of frames
4) The fill for the cardboard frames is a blending of two mill_pond papers and another copy of my photo (color burn and soft light blend modes)
5) The little bit of added color to the leaves was done using the sky portion of my photo clipped to the dried_foliage and set to an overlay blend mode, then masks to bring in the color to the edges
