Peonies in a Crock
NOTHING LIKE AN ABUNDANCE!
One of the neat things about peonies is that they have such large blossoms! It doesn't take too many to make you feel like you have a lot and when you actually have a lot......
I didn't plant these peonies, but I'm glad someone did. I do like white peonies; however, the pale pink peonies have such a delicate look about them.
In composing this picture, I used as the material a see through curtain I bought as some thrift store.
Since I wanted to make sure that the light colored peonies wouldn't fade in the background, I used the darker colored peonies and the sage(?) to help break the curtains from the rest of the flowers.
After I chose a picture I liked and got it uploaded into the computer, I made a layer out of another image I had worked on and pasted it on the peonies image. Then I worked with the layer and peonies photo a while.
When I finally got the right combination of layer and peonies, I printed the result out and admired it for awhile!
Challenge for today:
Go to a thrift store and look for some good cheap curtains you can later use.
