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.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
