The Background for This Season


tile made from fish skeletonDid anyone guess what the background for this fall is built from? Here's the tile.

I have a lot of fun playing around with pictures to make these.

But this time, you might not be so thrilled with the original topic. Here it is: a long-dead salmon.

At least it was so well cleaned and dried that Maggie didn't even try to roll in it!

A dead Salmon, eh...never would have guessed that one! Love the final result though.

I thought the bg looked like fish bones, but thought had to be a plant of some kind.

I've been trying to visualize how you formed the bg image from the photo. It looks like it involved rotating, folding and rotating back. Time for breakfast. I'll think about it later. Or not.

That's actually super creative, and makes a great effect!

I never would have guessed that in a million years. Very cool how you made the tile from the picture

It is so good for your background does not have the smell of Salmon.

Loretta- Thanks- the "fix up" is a bit more appealing

Chuck- HA! I've got you too used to thinking of me with plants all in the same breath

NYer- Thanks! I just fool around till I get something I like

Ann- you are the master at doing nice effects with pix!

rainfield- I think you have made the most important observation yet!

I would never have guess that! I love salmon, even raw...but long dead isn't my favorite, except in this manner!

Yuck. I think I was better off NOT knowing what it was! Hahaha!
