Soft Pink Header to Fluff up the Place

 In an effort to fluff up the place I chose to put a soft,


 barely there header up. My inspiration was the Anthropology look- soft, dreamy and kind of Springy.

Found this picture on Microsoft's images. They have a wide selection of free images.

Pretty borders.


To get that barely there soft wispy look I used a mask from Manu. So pretty!

Then by dialing the opacity back to 80% the picture really softened.

Last of all I saved it as a png. file.

What do you think? Do you like?

 What are some of the things you are doing to get thru winter?

Blessings, Audrey

This is just georgous! So pretty. I just found out about png. files...but I need to find out more. I understand that they allow a clearer photo something I really struggle with.
