I have been playing in my sketchbooks, yes this is from two sigh, I cant seem to make up my mind.
I have decided that things I like to do are playing with colour and my most favorite well probably almost most favorite, thing to sketch are leaves.
The top one has stamps as well as sketched leaves. I am also playing with background colour, the top one is using twinkling h2o's which I have but rarely use and the bottom is water colour paint using a water brush, after I had used sharpies and a gel pencil that I dont know where I got them from but are more like a crayon.
So fun and games with a bit of written nonsense as well.
I cant settle to any thing properly so these sketches for the Sketchbook Challenge are fun and very relaxing.
The weather has changed and is cool and windy.
I am still hating not using Adobe starter edition for editing but it has been taken from me so now I have to learn how to do other things. Nikon is so slow as an editing tool and picasa doesnt quite do what I want it to do, and I have to find where things are, and I dont like it!! I spent ages trying to refine my scanning but hope I have finally got it under control. Urgh!~! I suppose in a few weeks I will wonder why I am complaining.
I think I prefer to do my blogging from blogger and not picasa but as I cant edit to my satisfaction any where else and the only way I have found to upload from picasa is with picasa.
Enough whingeing, on to sewing silk flags.

These are very nice Penny. One thing that Picasa can do which is interesting is to overlap two pictures to make new shapes. Have two pictures in one folder, click on title, then create and scroll down to overlap pictures.

Lovely your use of vibrant colour in the new year, Penny.

I'm a leaf fan, too (no, not the Toronto Maple Leafs) and I'm enjoying what you're creating!
