Janet, just say when. My car has been in the garage way too much this winter and wouldn't mind a day trip up to your part of the state; I'll bring my camera, and we'll make a day of it.
CJ, I like that so much. How did you do it?
Neve, I don't mean to be thick headed, but where did you get the Impressionist/03 CH More Stuff - Stitches 83/97/200? That's kewl. I just now downloaded the Enki's filter but haven't installed it. Is it mainly for backgrounds?

I love purple flowers. I used impressionist watercolor on this, then reversed this layer, and simply merged it with original on lightest (the watercolor) and added canvas.

Jaykita, the square one is AWESOME, creative, fanciful, and bold. You have such talent!!!

My third one was a very high emboss and unsharp mask to almost blown out proportions. Then inverted it and overlayed onto the painted copy (number one). Merged and the last step was to solarize the whole thing and then invert.

Hi Raniday, I downloaded Cheryl's Impressionist sets from here:-

http://f2.pg.briefcase.yahoo.com/bc/...+paper&.view=l

You need to have the Impressionist Plugin installed first though. Contact Danny Raphael, he can help you with this Plugin.

Some very generous folks here at RP have also contributed other VERY useful sets for Impressionist which you can download from here:-

Yes, Enki's wallpaper filter is very simple but effectively creates striped wallpaper quickly. Useful, I've used it in a lot of projects. Especially on some 12 x 12" Scrapbook layouts which I design for the family.

Thanks Janet, I have cross-stitch projects on my walls so I know how long that takes me..the pity is, I spend too much time computing now to do much stitching.

Lovely result Jaykita, innovative and pleasant to view. I recall you posted something prior with those delicate florals, that was lovely too.

Thank you, Neve. I have Impressionist, but I've not spent much time getting acquainted with it, and I've never added "sets" to it. I'll go browsing the pages you showed me.

Here's my attempt with the flowers. Are they Impatiens?, they look like the ones I had last summer.

Masked the flowers out in PSCS, duplicated the bottom left one and placed it top right.

3 different watercolour brushes in Painter IX then back into PSCS for Impressionist jch VanGogh and fingerpaint. Added trimoons artpaper texture and there you have it I've been trying to practice with a more loose and realistic watercolour effect so I really like this.
