Cactus Monday Mish Mash










HCM Cactuteers. This was my honest attempt to transform Frankencactus into something of beauty, but clearly I need to contemplate what beauty really is. The other two are photos I took in Arizona and played with heavily in photoshop. The middle one I worked with filters-I didn't like the way the sepia filter made it look so I layered several to get an old timey look and still have color. The bottom one I just played with till I felt happy with it. Honestly couldn't tell you what I did or what order I did it but I really like how it came out.

Hi Debra... can you write the section starting with the choice to EAT THE BOY FOR BREAKFAST??? sorry this hasn't been too clear... i knew it would be a tricky endeavor from the beginning...

love your work especially the third one that has got a sense of watercolor... my favorite style...

Debra,
regarding Hopper's new project, i wrote my part and i'd like to ask you to write about my first option which happened to be Hopper's first option... :D
waiting impatiently to read yours.
hugs.

a perfect trio! I love playing around with things and being pleasantly surprised by the results. I remembered to do mine just a few moments ago.
I'm curious about what Hopper is talking about. Hmmm, time to investigate!
