Hello all! Fresh from the garden, I’ve a few little blooms to share with you today. Well, one isn’t really that little, it’s quite large actually…it’s this Shirley Temple peony. It’s a beauty, don’t you think? I decided to treat myself to three peony plants for Mother’s Day, so I’m hoping to see a few more of these pretty blossoms coming my way. I love it’s soft pink ruffled petals. Mmmm…pure yumminess.
I added one of Kim Klassen’s textures to this photo for Texture Tuesday. Stained linen is what it’s called. I ♥ that too. I did one layer at soft light and another at pin light, if by chance you were wondering.
Now, this flower is actually one from my mom’s garden. We went to my parents’ house for Memorial Day and I used the opportunity to take a few snaps. It’s an azalea…so I’m told anyway. I gave this a few layers of texture too. The photo above and the photo below are the same, each just has different layers. On the first one I used two layers of stained linen.
And on this one, I used Kim’s stained linen texture and her pour vous texture. Which photo do you prefer? I think that I like the first of the two the best since the flower is brighter. But, of all three, the peony is definitely my favorite.
Oh, by the way, I just want to say thank you to everyone who left me such nice comments on my last post…your kind words really mean a lot to me.
Happy thoughts from me to you.
