In the evenings why am I not reading, or knitting, or making cookies, or flipping through magazines and getting inspired??
I'll tell you why, - I have become addicted to Texturing!
The pictures come from the camera looking quite gorgeous (well, most of them, - the ones that don't are quickly deleted), - but my imagination drives me to experiment with textures, and I think ' what would this flower, or tree, or person look like with a Serendipity texture? Or one of the new Zen creations that I stumbled over while surfing the net.
Sometimes I think they are great, - more often than not I am wary of my judgement , - but in any case it is great fun....
The pretty tulip above somehow escaped from the garden and ended up down by the pasture fence, so this morning while I was inspecting the latest Chinese Lantern Railway sub-station I went and snapped a picture of this lonely little tulip in amongst the dandelions.
Shortly after a strong whirly wind came up and snapped the stem of this tulip, and also two of the pink ones in the garden, so I brought them in and put them in the old white teapot with the broken spout, and took a picture of that, too!
Here is the bouquet, untouched, straight from the camera.
and here it is all gussied up with fancy textures......
Am I frittering away my time?????
or am I just not very good at it yet (sigh)
