iris-emergingwatercolorborder2pmatteAfter the Rockland Photography Club’s recent Pictorial evaluation, quite a few people asked what type of border I used for my photo “Iris Emerging”.  Here’s the story:  I downloaded some brush packages, and added them to my Brush collection in Photoshop.  Using select brushes, I created the custom border for my photograph.  I credit the following video from the the Photoshop Video Academy for offering some clear instruction to help guide the process.

I have been seduced by the sensual curves of the calla.  I planted some bulbs indoors, since I did not want to wait until Spring to enjoy their beautiful blooms.  As I looked through the flowers to find interesting ones to photograph, I stumbled upon something remarkable — conjoined twins!
