Dance for me

Dance for me

The rain and the sun have worked their magic; in my little garden the Astrantia have opened out.  Today, swaying in the breeze, they looked so pretty…so pale and delicate. Perhaps tomorrow I will steal away for a quiet hour, sit on the bench and watch them dance. The texture used on both images is […]

More Texture Love

More Texture Love

Yesterday I mentioned that I would post another textured floral.  Well here it is. And it’s one that I love. The anemone is a beautiful and graceful flower, a gem in any garden. This little beauty flowers in the Spring and has the prettiest name.  She is Harmony Pearl, and she’s a new addition to […]

To texture or not to texture

To texture or not to texture

Last week I posted some florals and asked the question “Now, will I add some texture…or not?” Well I’ve had a really busy week, full of ups and downs, but yesterday I had a few free hours, and guess what I did!  Yes, I added some texture.  I started with Apple Blossom, and here’s what […]

Three months suits me […]

Autumn Charm

Autumn Charm

I hope you are all enjoying a great weekend!  Mid-August and many of the flowers in the garden are starting to die off, but these pretty aristocrats are just coming into bloom, and will last through to mid Autumn.  I love the way Japanese Anemones stand high on their slender stems and dance in the […]

Texture temptation

Texture temptation

I’ve been trying out some textures by Kim Klassen and Leslie Nicole of French Kiss, and I’ve got to say I love them .  :)  I’d been hoping to get some time to make my own, and have a box full of all sorts of messy things like Gesso and Mod Podge and acrylic paints […]

Photoshop Textures anyone?

Photoshop Textures anyone?

As if life isn’t busy enough (does anyone have free time theses days!), I found myself thinking today about developing a range of Photoshop textures.  I’ve been adding textures to my florals for quite number of years, and I think it’s perhaps about time I looked at making a full collection of them. If anyone […]

Taking a Walk

Taking a Walk

I sometimes spend far too long at my computer. No, that’s not true.  I always spend far too long at my computer.  :)  Today I decided I needed some fresh air, so I headed for the beach.  I didn’t exactly walk on the beach (though I really prefer to do that), because I wasn’t wearing […]
