Faithful Gardens

Page 10

Good morning from a cool but very sunny Hastings.

Yesterday ended up cold, wet and totally miserable so I spent most of my time on the computer honing my Photoshop skills.

One day, while out for my walk I came across this fantastic garden with poppies of all colours and sizes.  So of course the camera was busy.

I took a picture of the garden itself.

Then I went through my photos, looking for well defined flowers that I could easily outline them to make them into embellishments.

I wanted photo bright colours.  It is easier to cut out the flowers when the background is a lot darker than the object.

I used the main photo of the garden as the background.  I didn’t want the whole photo as the fence didn’t fit in with my garden theme.  The iScrapbooking allows you to fit the image to size, in proportion to the size of the page or to use the centre of the image which is what I clicked onto.  That got rid of the unwanted parts of the image.   I clicked several times to increase the transparency.  I wanted the background to be defined but the the main image.  I then arranged my flowers how I wanted and then added the text using the text editor.

As you can see I love colour and this all went well together.

Cheers and have a nice day
