Although this page isn’t technically an October scraplift page, I thought I’d post it here, to enable me to reply to comments. Also, I have to thank Corrie for posting her scraplift page that included mushrooms, which prompted me to create my own Lichen and mushroom page this evening. This is my last page for October 2021. Thank you Carole for the diamond slats template. I had just the photo to use. A long branch embraced by several species of lichen, I created three identical sized framed photo templates, for the photos. The ink splatter is filled with a photo of lichen from a photo. ( 2 Ink splatter brushes, colour grey, using the magic wand copy and paste selected area into the selected splatter). I used 2 mushrooms as an overlay for the background paper, texture. Created the mushrooms myself, once I created the vector template, flood filled with chosen colours, grunge brush on a new layer for an effect. The feathered shadowing gives a 3D effect. The intention was to create realistic mushroom elements. Lichen and mushrooms always reminds me coral.
Corrie, thank you for heeding my suggestion. I too, prefer the amended version. When I make suggestions I realize that we all have different styles, likes and dislikes. Although they are my own personal opinion, I feel it helps us to look at our work differently. I like to think that everyone else would do the same to my work. We are always learning, and evolving when it come to being creative.
Marie-Claire, what a beautiful autumnal page you have created. Autumnal colours are truly Mother Nature’s vibrant earth colours.
