"Euphorbia Seasons " for Nature Gathered


Our Nature Gathered group selected seasons for the April challenge. Mine represents a variety of seasonal euphorbia. I discovered this plant last year and began taking photos. I didn't realize that poinsettia also belong in the euphorbia family. The outer edges are stenciled- an inspiration from Mary Ann's online class. I used Photo Shop to arrange and alter my photos.

This is just beautiful! I love euphorbias too, and never knew that the poinsettia was one.

I really like your composition, and the stenciling is a great accent to the central design!

Thanks, Gwen, for your comments. It was a fun piece to do and made me learn some new PhotoShop techiniques.

Very nice, Paula. It reminds me of a mandala, too. I hope I get to see it in person.

Funny you mention mandalas. I plan to create a mandala for our Nature Gathered "elements" challenge.
