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.

 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 …..
