Orange

Texture Tuesday is all about "Orange" this week. Originally I had a photo of an orange dahlia in mind, so the petals looked like flames. Well I bought one at the farmers market yesterday and this morning it looked like a sorry mess. Luckily I had also picked some Zinnia on Friday for flowers on the table for a dinner party. One of the ones that was still fresh was orange so it all worked out in the end.
I enjoyed playing with the storyboard that Kim gave us last week. I used several textures on this to get the look I was after "canvasback", "KK2" and "luminious". The tutorial for putting the colors in the swatches was very easy to follow. Fun project. I am sure we will see more than one storyboard used this week. Texture Tuesday keeps me creative, thank you Kim. Join us over at the Cafe`.http://www.kimklassencafe.com/
