Abstract Spade Flower

Orange for Tuesday. Jackie's idea for a week of abstract colours has added lots of extra interest to the rainbow2018 activity. Great fun!!
Very cool! I am enjoying your abstracts.

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Haaa - I must have messed up the general pattern at the beginning! I was going to do diagonals but it was too hard. Maybe I'm out of step? My red starts on Monday? Then ROYGBPP (pink and purple at the end) This might work OK - we can get a bit of inspiration from each others out of step colours? Maybe?? :)

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Hi Jackie - this was two layers - one was just the flower in a fancy frame, but it had been made partly transparent from the right to the left. The other was a background pale orange colour which had also been made partly transparent, but with a swirly transparent pattern. Then the two were put over each other. It was all a bit of trial and error with the transparencies to see what worked together. I like using transparencies as they give lots of options - my yellow one today is made much the same way - just the same photo 4 times - each with a total transparency eg maybe 60% transparent. Hope this makes sense. Cheers Rob

@30pics4jackiesdiamond Jackie - I just realized - For Wednesday's flower the bottom yellow flower was full image - not transparent at all. :)
