Do you remember the Ikea commercial when the woman yells at her husband “START THE CAR START THE CAR”? I always laughed at that. Well, the same kind of incidence happened this past weekend to me. We were camping with our kids and their families in a Provincial Park an hours drive away from home. My husband and I were in the truck going to the beach when I spotted this big patch of orange. I couldn’t believe my eyes I thought it was a collection of kids toys there in the sand. I yelled at my husband “Stop the Truck Stop the Truck” and out I went with the camera in my hand. There in the sand was a huge patch of these bright orange mushrooms. I later identified them through the National Audubon Society field guide to Mushrooms as a Tricholomataceae Agaricales or Jack O’Lantern mushroom. The tops of most of them were at least 5-8 inches across and stood 6-8 inches tall in clumps. They are poisonous to eat. I used Kim’s Magic 2 texture twice and removed the texture from the mushrooms. I may have done other things but I forgot to write it down. Kim challenged us to find a photo of something orange. So putting the magic 2 texture on the Jack O’Lantern mushrooms make them magic mushrooms. Hope you see the humor here.
Join us at Kim Klassen Cafe for an other addition of Texture Tuesday. Have a great day. I do hope everyone is safe from hurricane Irene. She really was a wild storm. Valerie
