A distinct Kiwi flavour – Looking into nature

Looking into nature

 

 

Good morning from an overcast Hastings this morning.

Today I have gone for a Kiwi theme to support our boys in San Francisco who will hopefully win the America’s Cup this morning.  It has been gripping tension the last few days.  I don’t think there will be much work done this morning.  So good luck to Dean Barker and the team.  Bring the cup home.

I take my inspiration from what I find around me.  There are so many interesting textures and shapes even at the local park where this photo was taken.

I then used the plastic wrap brush, followed by the poster edge brush to make this background paper.

From another photo I made this embellishment.

I wanted to keep this page simple and uncluttered so that is all I added.  The font is FontleroyBrown.

I have become a big fan of this Photoshop filter plastic wrap.  It gives a real three dimensional feel to the pictures.

Here are a couple of others I have done as well.

There are so many different ways to make more dramatic papers.

So cheers and go Team New Zealand.

Have a nice day.
