Back in may when I was editing my tulip photos I decided to do experimenting with one of them in paint.net just to see what some of the different photo editing tools did and to learn to do some new things. It’s been long enough ago now that I don’t remember all the different steps I used to create these one of the tools I used on this first one was layer properties. Opening multiple copies of the same photo and then choosing different levels of transparency and blending modes. I think I even used a polar inversion, which did some interesting things to the background on one layer.

Superimposed with many semi transparent layers of abstract shapes, this red tulip seems to be floating in a nebula.

Then when I started getting this ready to post here I decided that the tulip needed to be moved higher in the picture to create a better composition. this was done by flipping another copy of the picture upside down , and then blending the edges together, as well as making a few other changes, and then cropping it. It looks even more beautiful now.

My kids however, thought it looked “weird” to have the tulip under the semi transparent layers, so I made this one, just for them, by adding multiple gradient layers of the tulip on top as well as adding a swirl beneath–and then doing the usual final retouches.

The other day when I needed to go to the post office, the sun was out and the weather was warm–perfect for a brisk walk; so, I grabbed my camera and headed out on foot to get some photos and some exercise on the way. When I got to the old elementary school I stopped to take pictures of the tulips there because the plants growing around them made such an interesting background. It looked similar in leaf shape and color to the dusky broad leaved red eucalyptus that is available at most craft stores for use in floral arrangements, only it also had large spiny thorns and little yellow flowers. After searching around on the internet a bit I think it might be a variety of red Japanese Barberry.

While I was out hiding the Easter eggs I noticed some trillium flowers were blooming out in our forest earlier than usual. So the next time the light was good I grabbed my camera and hiked back out there. There are definitely benefits to living on a half acre of forest 🙂 I only got a couple of shots before the sun went behind the clouds, but that’s typical Oregon spring weather for you 😉

Glistening wet from a recent spring shower, this exotic looking purple trillium blooms beautifully in the Oregon rain forest. A ray of bright sunlight warms the ferns and leaf strewn forest floor in the background.

This week I have been creating some stationery out of my stargazer lily photographs.

The soft focus in the photo on this stationery of a vase of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies glowing brilliantly in the afternoon sun conveys a feeling of old-fashioned romance and memories full of love and joy.

Softly focused photograph of a vase of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies glowing gloriously radiant in the afternoon sun. These beautiful blooms stand out gorgeously against the dark background.

This stationery features a focused black and white photo of an arrangement of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies overlaid with a semi transparent writing area. One unopened bud stands tall above the rest which bloom radiantly in an ethereal glow of afternoon sunlight.

A bouquet of stargazer lilies glows in the afternoon sun, with translucent petals and leaves, while the background disappears into the shadows in this softly focused photograph.

A bit of lens flare and a soft focus lend an ethereal effect to this photo of a bouquet of pink and white speckled stargazer lilies shining radiantly in the afternoon sunlight. set on a dark pink background and overlaid with a semi-transparent writing area, this photo makes an elegant writing paper.
