My Chihuly rose always has a glorious first bloom. Named after the glass artist, Dale Chihuly. If you haven’t seen his wonderful glass art in person I highly recommend it!

So nice to put some of my collectibles back out on display as the floor re-do makes progress. Roses in the garden are in full glory!
Spring is here…
Memories of Summer
As I was putting away books I had gotten out a while ago, I took another look at some of the pages I had marked in Deborah Schenck’s Fern House. This is my take on her photos of flowers laying on open books. I used some dried roses from the summer and a vintage dictionary. The lace is from a runner that belonged to my husband’s grandparents; made for a nice vintage touch to the background. This shot was taken indoors; I used a gold reflector to the side and had a diffuser on my external flash that I aimed at the reflector. I used a kk_daysofold Lightroom preset; added a kk_canvasgrunge texture, and a Photoshop Artistry Grunge Edge Effect.
Photoshop Artistry Challenge
This is my entry for the first challenge for Photoshop Artistry. I used a photo from my garden and one I set up in my studio. For the challenge we were to use one to two of our own images; a Film Edge Effect, and two of Kim Klassen’s textures. We were then to paint with colored light, a technique taught in the class. I chose to bring out some of the rust tones and turquoise from the oxidized copper heart. I added a bit of those colors to the edge using the same effect. although the roses image that is overlaid on top on the main image isn’t technically a landscape, it was taken outdoors in my yard. Check out the class at www.photoshopgrunge.com.
Oops! Forgot to use the vector image as stated in the challenge… will have to redo….
