Re: Handfull of fuschia's

Patricia I agree that there is a bit more of a adventerous side to us lately and i like that, it makes things a bit more fun and inspirational don't you think ?
Speaking of which i really like the background that you created it has a marble sort of feel to it and makes the flowers pop
Janet i also like your whimsy feel which is how i think of Fuschia's normaly ( little ballerinas )
Craig i prefer it with out a frame and it now looks good enough to print and frame

thank you all

Palms

Re: Handfull of fuschia's

Thank you for your comments Craig...I really enjoyed doing this one and i am at last getting somewhere with the lighting effects!!!
I think yours would be fab in poster size...

Palms...Glad you liked it...I painted the background with Dens funky chunky brush in Painter and the flower i did with Jeremys oil brush....fun and good practice!!!! I still call them ballerinas!!!!It certainly is more fun now we are all getting our brains in gear...and we all gain inspiration from each other!!!

Patricia...

Re: Handfull of fuschia's

I put Craig's frame on my version, but I popped the flowers out of the frame.

I was playing with Photoshop's ability to generate separate layers for any style settings.

For the flowers, I created a normal drop shadow, then used the Layers -> Styles -> Create new layer, to remove the style and place it on it's own layer. I could then load the stroke and apply a style of it's own to it.

About the same thing for the flower drop shadow. Created it on a merged flower layer then put the style on its own layer (as above) and manipulated it with opacity and gaussian blure and repositioning.

Re: Handfull of fuschia's

well, if you sell any of my version, palms, i want at least a 30% royalty

patricia, poster sized...hmmm, interesting idea. at one point i was seriously thinking of buying a large format printer that would have done that. but the prices have almost doubled now, so maybe next year

and dee dee's idea of the out of bounds might work well on mine also. very nice, dee dee

Thanks all..

The out of bounds is really easy to do if you create a stoke on the background layer then move the stroke style to its own layer. Put the new stroke layer under the flowers and wah-la, Out of bounds.
