I'm indulging in Smoke and Mirrors, Double Meanings, Hidden Messages, etc., on my blog right now...
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.
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.
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.
