Colors of Summer

Colors of Summer

I know it's supposed to be Spring, but there isn't much going on around here yet. The grass is mostly uncovered from the snow, so I'm going with last year's photos.

I did this for the 4/14 Color Challenge. I hope it isn't TOO bright for everyone. :)

I really do know how to use the papers, but I just have so much fun using my own photos for backgrounds sometimes. The background is actually the right side of the gerbera daisy photo. I transformed it then tried out a fleet of filters on it finally settling on some blurs (can't remember which ones). The photos just have 80 px strokes at 60% opacity around them. I did erase parts of the overlapping segments that were really distracting, but not all of them. The font is Phyllis D with an outer glow applied. Created in PS CS2 on an iMac.

The quote at the bottom is:
“Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land.” Song of Solomon 2:12

I was planning ot play with this some more, but I need to move on to other things. Can you tell I LOVE color? :D

    this is very pretty. Graet Lo
    not too bright in my eyes! love the pictures :) and I couldn't agree more..not much spring here either ;/
    This LO is WONDERFUL!!
    Who needs paper with it? The flowers speak for themselves. You have shown them off to their best advantage.
    I put it on my favorites list.
    It's a beautiful LO! The flower photos are stunning and I really like how you've used the photo as the background. It's very pretty.
