Fooling with photographs from Gertie’s Garden

Fooling with photographs from Gertie’s Garden.

In a former phase I learnt to enamel on bits of metal.

Gertie’s Garden would now be a good source for flower images to immortalise in this way.

Here are a few of my favourite photographed plant images from this year, ‘virtually’ enamelled and tweaked.

Beautiful Clematis.


Barmy Basket Begonias.


 Decorative Hanging Strawberries.


 Cranesbill, Ann Folkard.


 The leaves are pretty too.


 Even the rough ole roses, suffering so much this year from black spot.


I would love to turn them all into enamelled jewels to wear around my neck on a chain, or as earrings dangling from my lobes!

Blue geraniums are lovely …..



Whichever way you view them…..



I find it fascinating …. I shall try more ……



Some work, some don’t …..
