If you RIGHT CLICK on the download link, and choose the option "Open in New Window" you won't be taken away from my blog entry, rather you will be able to download the element and still read today's entry.

Just a little entry today folks! It's looking refreshingly cool outside and I have plans of just sitting and getting aquainted with my latest aquisition - Painter X (a digital painting program)

The pot-luck lunch at the school was a grand success - kind of a happy/sad affair as its the last one of the school year. We really get to know the students as family by the end. Roger & Marie, it was so nice to meet your visitors yesterday - I'll be praying for a safe trip home when they leave!

Bonnie and Roman visited last night and we watched slideshows of our past holidays - what a great way to pass an evening. What a wonderful thing to share all these happy memories with friends! Bonnie and Roman are also good photographers and we saw the most amazing pictures of thier hikes and the flowers and critters they've come across. We are hoping to do this more often!

I'll also be working up some Father's Day-ish thing for my sweet husband and finking up some ideas for an upcoming bridal shower for a young lady from our church - me and my friend Becky will be doing all the decoratin'

THRONE MOUNTAIN - after the rain.

71 Optical Illusions & Visual Phenomena

These pages demonstrate visual phenomena, and »optical« or »visual illusions«. The latter is more appropriate, because most effects have their basis in the visual pathway, not in the optics of the eye.

Looking forward to sorting through all the fun stuff with you on Monday morning. The weekend is supposed to be very cool & somewhat rainy so have fun with your Painter program!

  5. That Mountain Looks AMAZING!!!! :) thanks for sharing that pic.. and the BandAid.. What can I say.. Its Amazing!!! :) Love it!!! Thanks for sharing! :) HUGS and Enjoy your DAY! :)


  6. Totally off the subject du jour, but in knitting there's something similar to your visual optical illusion / Old FAshioned Lenticular images ... it's called SHADOW KNITTING and a wonderful Scandinavian woman reinvented it. It's made with ridges and valley [knits and purls] and looking straight on it looks like a neat pattern, but then at an angle it could be a butterfly, fish, or triangles. Rather interesting!

  7. This bandaid is so cute - thank you! Glad the potluck went well - just thinking of it makes me hungry - LOL!

  8. hi barb! haven't stopped in for a while so now I am catching up... glad your potluck went well, your meat pie looks delicious - will have to try that recipe sometime! all those tapes you've made are just adorable, too! and thanks fpr the bandaid - like Val I hope I only have use for it on past photos! :) enjoy your weekend and oh, yeah - you've been tagged! :) details on my blog - but basically just write 7 things about yourself and then tag 7 other ppl! :) hugs!

  9. oh, LOL, Barb - you can take your time, far as I know there is no deadline! but I am wondering what kind of secrets you're gonna spill... LOL :) as for me being talented... sheesh, I always thought the whole digi community was comprised of all the more talented people in the world! seriously. lol. (I was born in Montreal - do you ask for a specific reason?) xoxo
