Creative interpretations: Flowers - Purple & Ready for Spring (JanetP)

I don't know about anyone else, but I'm ready for spring. Enough already with the winter. Neve, you've been making me so long for warmer weather I can't stand it any longer. So have fun with a flower picture and keep in mind that spring/summer is just around the corner for those of us in the northern hemisphere.

Thank you for a lovely floral photo Janet. I couldn't forget about life in the Northern Hemisphere, I lived their for the best part of 27 years. Canada and Scotland... so I appreciate totally how you must be feeling right now waiting for warmer weather.

Have had fun with these little flowers. Come on others. Join in.

Great result Hephaestos. I'm going to have to try that tutorial.

we got yesterday first proper snow of this winter, so i can't complain - it's beautiful outside

and yet better when you sit inside, hot cup of coffee or cocoa in your hand and watch the snow

Janet, thanks for the pretty flowers. I added a couple of flowers and used Impressionist filter and Sharon's mat action.

Wonderful Raniday. Simply wonderful. Wanna come play when the spring flowers are out in bloom? We can take lots of pics like these.

Janet -- I'm with you -- definitely in favor of Spring!!
Gotta have sunshine and warmth. I live in the "Valley of the Sun" but we've got more rain clouds headed our way.

The sunlight is beginning to warm these blooms, but some are still waiting and hoping...

Stitch and Hang

Lovely results everyone. I made a square selection, brightened with Filter PR Brightness. Impressionist/03 CH More Stuff - Stitches 83/97/200 (i.e. Cheryl's sets). Thanks Cheryl, very useful!!! Sharpened the stitches using AIM/USM filter. Used same selection of your floral Janet and used Enki's

Wallpaper filter to create the bg.

Not exactly painterly but was fun anyway.

Great results everyone. It's amazing how many different ways we each see the composition of the wildflowers.

Neve, I especially like the stitches. I can't help but think about how long it would take to do something like that by hand.
