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.
