November Colour in the Sandbox
Rita at the Coffeeshop Blog is a whiz at making templates for collages or storyboards and lots of actions for Photoshop and Photoshop Elements. If you haven’t visited her website please go and visit. I shamelessly download just about everyone she comes up with. This morning I was out in the Sandbox trying to find something for my Mosaic Monday post and as I went around the side of the house I spotted a spot of pink peeking out of the leaves. Glory be it was a primula in bloom. That brought a big smile to my face. Who would have thought in November this little spring bloomer would send up a bloom. The Belacamba chinensis has a lovely orange spotted bloom in the summer but in fall it produces these almost black seed heads. The templates I used was a colourblock one and I used some brushes to illustrate the colours in the picture. I just could not get the true colour as I was putting them on a too saturated colourboard. Have to practice with that some more.
Monday is Mosaic Monday at Mary’s. Come over and visit or join in. Have a great week. Valerie
