This past week I was winding down some training in Lubbock, Texas, home of the Texas Tech University Red Raiders.
I checked out the campus and found it needed a few more colors than just red and black. (No offense, but I'm a UT Longhorn fan.) Laura Venverloh sent me some beautiful cards to share with hospice patients, and I used the campus as my backdrop for photographing them. I know you'll appreciate Laura's projects as much as I do.
This one is definitely my favorite – though I love all the cards she sent. It's just so vibrant and so sensitive to what the hospice families are enduring. Well, that, and my Dad was partial to light houses.
If I'm not mistaken, I think Laura used a poppin' pastels technique with this card. The colors are so gentle. I love the bow on the top – so elegant.
This one is so dear. I think she used a rock and roll technique on the branch to give it that little touch of brown on the edges of the leaves.
Yes, I'd say the campus scenery was definitely brightened with Laura's cards, and I know a few hospice patients' days will be brightened, too. Oh, and there's more. Next, a few more of Laura's cards and some pictures from my visit to Lubbock's prairie dog town. Meanwhile, be sure to go visit Laura at "What's scrapping?"
