Little Things like Virgin’s Bower Clematis

virgins bower with canvasbackmagic texture

Kim’s Challenge for this week was “its the little things” for www.kimklassen.com/texturetuesday/

My entry is the Clematis virginiana or Virgin’s Bower a native vine to North America.  The flowers are about 1  inch or 2.5cm in width. I have it growing on an arbor into the vegetable garden.  I used Kim’s newer texture called “canvasbackmagic” and used the recommended blending mode of screen and an opacity of 49%. I also used one of Kim’s brushes.

I have same kind of clematis just now blooming, it is a real climer. I have to cut it every autumn otherwise it is all over. I love those Kim's brushes what she has made, they really give something little extra, right!
Have a nice week.

Lovely image, I think I have that same clematis, but I call it Sweet Autumn, maybe it is not the same, but sure resembles it, mine does not bloom until around Labor Day. Have a great week ahead.
