Make A Snowflake! (GPP Crusade No. 36)







I was waiting for the painting to dry on a couple of WIPs and decided to check out a few blogs. Michele Ward posted a reminder for the latest Green Pepper Press Crusade and gave this link to make virtual snowflakes. In the past, I've made virtual snowflakes at another site and it can be addicting...so..... Just one snowflake today. And since I'd just been to Michele's site and we both love XOXO, I wondered if I could design a flake inspired by that motif.
Maybe you don't see the O's (they are the diamonds), but did you see the nifty hearts that showed up in the negative spaces? That was serendipity and I'm happy!
So I'm posting this as my 2nd edition to Braving the Elements, just with a twist. Thanks for the inspiration, Michele!

Regina, if you hadn't already posted two sets of lovely, REAL journal pages, I would have scolded you for cheating. But since you already did the work, and braved the elements with paint and paper, it is cool that you tried having another go it digitally with a different kind of ELEMENT...PSE! Ha! Clever! Thanks for sharing your work again girl. Super fun. Digging the secret message within..XXXXXX

Wow, this is great. Since I'm taking the PS class, this was very timely. I just learned how to make brushes.

Your brushed snowflakes are gorgeous. Love the colors and the hearts peeking through. Hearts are one of my favorite images.

Oh my stars - you are so clever! Fantastic page, and great to hear how you did it. I am a Photoshop beginner at best...
