Over the years Valentine's Day has become much more that just a day for our romantic love.
Today we celebrate all people we love...family...friends and don't forget our endearing pets! Do a little something today for the people who are special in your life... bake some cookies... write a love note...or just leave little store bought surprise ( you can never go wrong with chocolate surprise in my book!)
... and don't forget to do a little something for yourself - go to lunch with a friend...a movie... or just take some time to be creative. What ever you choose - Enjoy your day!
I baked these cookies for my hubby. A friend at work gave me the recipe for these Linzer Cookies and are they scrumptious! I made them over the weekend and I believe they're all gone!!!
Below are 2 different versions. I can't say one is better that the other...just different. I like the both for different reason. The 1st would be great for a cookbook and the second..well just a nice print to hang on your kitchen wall.
1st version: Minor touchups - darken top left corner with the paint brush (selecting a color near by)
Darkened to of Powdered sugar shaker, sharpened and added a little contrast.
2nd Version: Applied some actions, texture by Kim Klassen, a patterned overlay and smoothed out the background with the paint tool. Applied a slight burn using selection and multiply mode.
