Lotus Flower Seed Heads

I love the colours and patterns in this shot which was edited in the Painteresque app on the Rainbow setting. I took the original photograph at Tynemouth station and really like the zingy greens and yellows that the app has created.

Twice Edited Roses

I love this shot of roses taken at our local market. I edited the shot twice, firstly with the Painteresque app on my favourite Rainbow setting and secondly in the Paper Camera app on the Neon setting. I like the unexpected orange tones that have appeared in the petals.

KaleidaCam Stargazer Lily

I used the KaleidaCam app to alter this photograph of a Stargazer Lily. I love the patterns and colours that the app has created.


I edited this shot with the Toon Camera app and love the way it has enhanced the details and brightened the original colours. The cellophane packaging in the background is a great counterfoil to the spikyness of the Eryngium.

Triple Flower Birthday Card

It was the lovely Lesleys birthday recently and this is the card I made for her. She loves it so much she is going to turn it into a calendar. I take it as a huge compliment that she she wants to look at it for a whole year! I used a Kreaxions flower die from Craft Habitat, a Sizzix embossing folder, a Joy swirl die and a Memory Box frame die. The card was pearlescent white with a hint of gold and I used Distress inks to colour the whole thing. I like the addition of the scrapbook paper for a backdrop to the card topper and have used Stickles glitter glue to highlight everything. I’ve been told by the lovely Cheryl that I do like my sparkle!

Mystery Plant

I featured this Mystery plant on the 13 November and I still don’t know what it is. I love this shot and it has been edited firstly in the Toon Camera app and the rainbow setting in the Painteresque app. I love the colours and contrast in light and shade.

I edited this photograph of a green Chrysanthemum featured in the post on the 18th November with the Picfx app. I love the colours and patterns created within the flower by the app.

I used the SuperPhoto app to edit this shot of a Protea flower and I am enjoying the patterns created by the app. I can see rows of teeth, plaits and a scalloped edge just for starters. What patterns can you see? Let me know.

I love the zingy contrast between the cerise of the petals and the limey yellow centers. I edited the shot with the Toon Camera app which has defined the edges and shadows.

I edited this lovely shot of Heathers with the Toon Camera app. I love the way the app has eccentuated the colours and textures.

Wow, what a fantastic colour this green Chrysanthemum is. I remember many years ago whilst working in a florists for a few months, the trouble I had wrapping the large Chrysanthemum blooms. I notice that these days they come with little hair nets to protect them, but in this particular shop we used to secure the paper wrapping with staples …… yes you guessed I had several irate customers who returned to the shop holding a bare stem ! Whilst wrapping their flowers, I had inadvertently stapled through the petals and when the customers unwrapped their bouquets the flowers fell apart!!!!

Anemones were my Mum’s favourite flower, and whenever I see them they bring back fond memories of my childhood. I edited this shot with the Painteresque app, I discovered the style setting and this is the Rainbow effect which may turn into my new go to app. The petals have taken on a beautiful quality which perfectly matches their fragility.

I don’t think I have ever seen plantains in a bouquet before but they look stunning. The red cellophane gives some of the leaves a warm red filter.

I fell in love with this Protea flower so much it had to come home with me. I just love the different textures and colours in contrast to the concrete floor below.

Did you know that Arum Lilies came in so may colours? I think they look like exotic sweets all wrapped up in cellophane.

I saw this wonderful plant yesterday and haven’t a clue what it is. The lady selling it didn’t know either, but did know it could be dried and thought it might be a South African desert plant? Does anyone out there know what it is as I would love to know. Please leave me a comment if you do. I think it looks a lot like seaweed and have some wonderful edited shots to show you when I know what it is. Here’s hoping, I know you all love a challenge!

Hi everyone. Sorry for being AWOL for a week but I really didn’t have any good photos that I wanted to post ……. but never fear I went out and took lots of wonderful flower and plant pictures at Tynemouth market and have spent time editing and altering them for your delectation. So the first one off the rank is this beautiful shot of red and cream striped roses which were sitting in the autumn sunshine just waiting to be noticed. I used the native camera on my iPhone 5 and I love the vibrant colours.

I used the Toon Camera app to alter this shot of a Phlox plant. I love the beautiful pinks and greens in the photograph.

I really like the vibrancy of this photograph of Chrysanthemums. I edited the shot in the Paper Camera app on the Neon setting. I love the transparent quality of the petals and the rich bronze colours which weren’t apparent in the original.


This shot of a Stargazer lily was edited in the SuperPhoto app. The anthers on the stamens have become elongated and the center of the flower looks like a citrus fruit sliced in half. I think it’s great to see something familiar from a different perspective as it sparks off ideas for shapes and designs.
