Spotted Gum 2013

I did this page for the Orange Papiere March 2013 comp - which required hexagons and stamping.

I was really challenged by this!  Oddly enough, Adobe Fireworks has lots of pentagons, but no hexagons, so I had to get the shape from Microsoft Publisher's Shapes and then edit it inside Adobe Fireworks.

I used the bubblewrap 'stamp', even though the whole layout is digital.

I took this pic at Christmas, but I've lots of pics of Spotted Gums, which are prolific in the Merimbula NSW area. In Summer their bark peels off in spots, hence their name. The photo is done in Landscape mode to get the full sense of height of the tree. There is another photo on the page of the tree's bark up close.

The colours of the page I took from the close up shot of the bark!
