"Day of the Dead Collage" – 4x4 diamond

© All Rights Reserved
This week’s 4x4 Friday challenge was “Collage." I had been working on the previous week's challenge "Day of the Dead" but didn't finish it, so I made it into a collage. I used a 4x4 diamond shape, instead of a square this time. I made several modifications to the Gimp Fx-Foundry Alpha To Logo Dracula script, including adding the choice to create dripping blood from the alpha to selection of the chosen layer. I bump mapped the result.

"Moon Goddess" - Tag

© All Rights Reserved
This week’s Tag Tuesday challenge was “Moon.” I ended up making a Moon Goddess, instead of a harvest theme. I modified the GIMP Line Nova script so it would allow an offset center, then used it to create Mucha inspired moon beams radiating outward. I also changed my tag size to be 6 1/4 x 3 1/8 inches in size. This looks better in person. The scans continue to be washed out, even with "enhanced color" selected.

Fall Foliage

I took these pictures in Toth Memorial Park in Easton CT today. We had a very dry summer, so I'm not sure we will have even fall coloring this year. Some trees have already dropped their leaves, while some are still green.

Here Stood Kent Chemical Laboratory 1887-1934

I took this picture at Yale in New Haven CT yesterday. The beauty of this door caught my eye first, but then I saw the words. I felt a sense of sadness at the loss of the original lab building.
