The bottom photo is more or less unaltered. The other three are quite altered! I am seriously addicted to textures and blending modes! I think it is a harmless addiction-even though I can end up losing time, at other times results are surprisingly quick. I seem to go through phases with photo shop, doing one thing exhaustively and then finding another. I am like that with all my interests I think-am I fickle? Maybe. I do come back to things. At the moment felting has been abandoned in favour of photos-mainly because of time and work. I did try to start something the other night and my heart was not in it. Ah well!
These lanterns are from last year-around this time. They stayed orange for a long time, until I hung them outside, when they rapidly faded. A few fell to the ground and I have been watching them over the last few weeks as they become skeletons. I finally picked them up tonight to take a few pictures. I have put a few more in the same spot to see if they change too. The ones hanging up have not done this. I think damp must have had something to do with it in a corner on the ground.
I am missing time to visit blogs and am intending to have a catch up on Saturday. See you then if not before!
