Animated Calendula Star Tutorial


I have a created an animated tutorial showing how to create the digital flower stars. I plan to add another on making the rectangular backgrounds. I have these and other animation projects posted on You Tube. You can subscribe to my channel to receive alerts of new creations. I will add other tutorials in time.

Teddy Bear Cholla Patterns





At the top are two digital flower stars made with photos of teddy bear cholla flowers. The designs emerge from cutouts of the flower petals. Below them is another star made with photos of the thorns. I turned it red to serve as a background behind my flower mandala. I refer to this as a radial background. Below it is a rectangular background made with the thorns. Both types of backgrounds have their uses, and exhibit thier own kind of beauty.
