My Abstract and Creative Postcards of Paris

I have been sick and at home for 3 days now and when I am down my creativity increases.    I used my photographs of Paris to create abstract images / postcards.  My mood and flu are improving as I remember my time in Paris and look at my creations.  Hope you enjoy them!  Please stay safe and healthy!

Not many people have the time to look around, when they are in front of the magnificent Eiffel Tower in Paris.  I walked to the side of the Tower and there is a quiet and peaceful park with a lake.  This magpie is French!

Flower Power

I was looking through my photos and found a lot of pictures of flowers.  I saw this as an opportunity to play in Photoshop, look up some information about the flowers and share with you.  I would love to become a florist one day!  Here are my floral creations, I am sure you will agree that Flowers bring a smile and pleasure to us.

Below:  Flowers and butterflies are the perfect combination.  Here you can see the daisies, Bellis perennis, is sometimes qualified as common daisy, lawn daisy or English daisy.   (Wikipedia)   Asters- one of my favourite flowers as it reminds me of my childhood and passing the market where they were sold, everyday I went home from school.  The other beautiful flowers are very common, but I don’t know the name, could it be anemone?

Floral2Below you see proteas, flowers commonly used in so-called “native” flower arrangements, they are not Australian plants. They are native to South Africa.  The genus Protea has given its name to a family of related plants (the Proteaceae) and there are are a number of Australian members of this “Protea family”. These include Banksia, Grevillea, Hakea, Macadamia, Telopea (waratah) and many others. (source-http://anpsa.org.au/faq-4.html)

Butterflies Are Beautiful

I love the butterflies, they are so beautiful, playful and amazing.  When I was a little girl I used to catch them and bring home.  I put them into thick books to dry and then used them for art projects.  Now I enjoy seeing them from afar and marvel at the sight.  Life is a precious gift, enjoy yours!
