Now the fun bit starts and I can make it into a pattern :) (more to come, clearly...)


And then I spent an evening playing around with it, while watching Jessica Jones and drinking Prosecco (pretty much my perfect Friday night, really!)

Multitude of colourway playing. I did some individual adjustments to groups (e.g. turning the leaves black or white, adding different layer effects, like Multiply, Lighten, Dissolve, etc. - love playing with those). And then I did some whole-image recolouring, too. My favourites are probably the crazy pink and yellow one and the muted monochromatic purple one:

This was a tonne of fun, and I'm really pleased to have learnt some new tricks and also got a bit better with the pen tool - I tend to avoid using it, but may try to use it a bit more, now!
