Easily Distracted!!!!

 As previously mentioned, I've signed up for an online course hoping to improve my photo enhancing and design skills.  I've received two 'lessons' so far, and still feel rather overwhelmed with the terms and commands.  To be honest, I think I just freak out and find it hard to follow the set tasks!!!  I was sent a lovely photo the other day, so decided to use it for the exercise in lesson two. This pretty anenome was perfect.  I like open faced flowers for this purpose.  I just thought I'd share what I had achieved.  Now, don't think this is supposed to be what the lesson stated.  It's so totally NOT.  I got distracted when my cropped image wouldn't fit into my 'new' window, and when I saw only a portion of the flower, in a small rectangle, well......................  All I can say is I'd love to transfer the 'purple'  image to fabric and play a stitching game.   Having not long received a parcel containing lots of lovely purple fabrics, I think I'm finding it hard to get my mind off that colourway.

What a beautiful image. The flower in its original form is lovely but the altered image is amazing. I can see a whole new career opening up for you Linda.
