I agree, very creative, reminds me of wax crayons, multi coloured underneath black, scratch away the black & make a picture. Well done.

I looks like a wall stencil.

She said no flowers? I thought that was for the last challenge?:?:

Oh, gee - maybe it was for the last challenge, Pickles (I hear him talking to me with your posts, Ferny!) You're probably right.

Vito, I started out with the basic flower macro, then sharpened more concencetrically as I got to the center of the flower. Only touch-up. I duplicated the layer, assigned it "exclusion" properties, grabbed a thick, dry-brush eraser and did my thing. I had to scribble on it a few times before it looked right - scribbling isn't as easy as some might think!!! :-)

She might be a bit offended if she reads your post. So I'll hide it from her.:lol:

ohhh, exlusion? didn't even think of that....i was thinking a layer mask....or drawing the scribble on a layer then selecting and then inversing it and then filling it with black over the picture, or delete that part of the picture...

Vito, I just drew the scribble and then went down the list of types of layers. I liked that one best.

Ferny - I'm sorry - with a name like Pickles, I was such an idiot not to see she was a female. Please send her my apologies. I work with a girl named Pickles and one of my cousins' (female) is nicknamed Pickles.:lol:

You had me wondering...did I say no flowers? Did I say it when I wasn't looking? Am I losing it before my time? Yeah, probably am.

Great concept, Betsy. Flowers, in particular, are so amenable to being turned into abstracts. Very striking.
