Mushrooms and Textures


I have no idea what kind of mushrooms these are.



I just found them attractive.
Perhaps homes to a fairy or two?








I've never tried adding textures to photos before
but having seen so many references to PicMonkey,
I decided to give it a try.
I really liked the way this one turned out.
I hope you enjoy it too.
It's good to play sometimes!

PicMonkey is fun!

I liked the comment "mushroom graffiti" . . .

Sometimes it is the 'no play, all work' that gets us in trouble, . . . I'd say keep on playin'.

I love picmonkey and haven't tried much with texturing--You've done a great job on this, I'll have to try it!

I hope you're having a good weekend!

You must have had a bit of rain to get the mushrooms to grow! I haven't done much with textures yet. I'm still trying to improve my photography...and I can't seem to learn two things well at the same time. :))

Paula said...

I don't know a mushroom from a toadstool but I sure like the pictures.

WOW!! Very impressive! I don't know my way around picMonkey very well. Of course I am not a photographer either!! Love your work!
