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. It's the first time I've done a challenge so be kind. I hope it isn't TOO bright for everyone. I am VERY fond of green. :)

 

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

Thank you! I did take all the photos myself. My little Sony CyberShot and I are becoming good friends (and a little knowledge of PhotoShop doesn't hurt either). I can't wait until more colorful beauties arrive in my garden again.

 

And I'm glad I'm not the only one who thinks one can never have too much green! :D

"TOO bright", never. Wonderful use of color and the background is just the perfect compliment to the bold colour of your flowers. Great Job.
