White Wednesday Chalkboards

I have some chalkboards I painted on tin trays about a year ago and since I didn't do a spring show, they got packed away.  Well, they are seeing the light of day now.  These photos are my first taken outside in the sunshine {yep, there was sunshine today!} as an experiment.  I keep trying new settings on my 'ol Canon camera.  Let me know what you think!  I am also using Picasa 3 to edit them, which is new to me also.  I practiced a teensy weensy on my roses before doing the chalkboards, but just went for it with the birds nest.
A little too much sun in this one!
This is a little one!
All of these were made on tin trays and painted with chalkboard paint.   I will be adding these to my Etsy store soon.  I would love to get some time to paint again soon.  I'm trying to finish editing my sister's book and re~organize my studio.  It has become a little...shall we say...cluttered!!  Too many projects going on at once!  That never happens to you, does it??  My packing boxes are now neatly stacked on a shelf in the garage, along with the tissue paper & bubble wrap.  I helped my dear hubby get the garage all neat & tidy, now I gotta get busy on my room!!
