Again excellent work, Anita! It reminds me a pressed flower in a old herbarium.

You really are making good use of these overlays and textures and this one convincingly looks to be under glass in some long-lost herbarium drawer ! I wish, though, I could see the whole image on my screen . . it would look even sweeter smaller, I suspect.

@Ronnie 2¢: Thanks for the feedback. I'm having fun with textures. :-) Re. not being able to see the entire image of you screen--I'm not sure why not. I double checked to make sure the size of the image was the same as always, and it seems to be. Pls let me know if this continues to be a problem.

Another fine image well done Anita. The burnt border adds a nice touch.

17 Aug 2009 2:15am

@Mark: Thank you. I think it would be improved by adding more border to the left side.

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

Love it! The colour and texture are superb...
Textures are something I'm still struggling with.... Can't figure it out! :(

@Magda: Thank you! I learned how to use textures from some simple tutorials at the flickr group Textures for Layers.

Thank you so much for the link! I hope I can learn from those tutorials! Amazing stuff... :O

So many lovely images! I wanted to remark on the one’s with the textures simply because yours are wonderful and I so rarely like manipulated images because most often they attempt to hide or cover up photos that are not that successful instead of complimenting and enhancing a good photo. But yours are beautifully done with a sensitive painterly eye that enhances a lovely photo.
