Floral Play Today

Kobi's waiting at home while I have a "working" visit with my friend, Shirley. I'm sure he can't wait for me to return, thinking he'll get to go walking, but I don't think that's going to happen. Not sure yet.

Last night I had a creative spurt and sewed a new top ... first sewing project in over 15 years!!! And I was up until 4:30 in the morning. Some might say, why bother going to bed ... but I just can't do all-nighters anymore and keep going during the following day.

So on only four and a half hours sleep, I only played with pictures while Shirley wrote. She was very productive. I played.

The picture above is a composite of three floral pictures. It makes for a funky virtual garden, me-thinks.

I had fun making the yellow daisy-like chrysanthemum pink with blending modes, a texture, and gradient.

The foundation for both images is the floral arrangement on the table at the Red Frog.

I hope Kobi will take me out for a walk tomorrow.

Happy Mother's Day to all my mom-friends.

And one more ... just learned about Shadowhouse Creations splatter masks ... how cool!

Textures thanks to Kim Klassen: naturally, heartfelt
