All About March

March . . .comes after February . . .the month in which it snows and rains . . .the greenest month of the year.
But alas, not one of my favorites. Still, worthy of snapping and remembering.

This is the 2nd time this year that we've seen snow on the hills below Mt Hamilton.  This layout was done as a swatch challenge at Design House Digital.  I had the swatch open in Photoshop so I could match the colors.  Then I dragged it onto the layout to get the colors exact, and found I really liked it there, so there it stayed.  Did some fun things with masks and brushes here, and added a plume in the background.

Papers from Robyn Meierotto's Stormy Skies and Kraft Party, with Robyn's Kraft Wood Alpha. Also paper from Sara Schmutz Summer Picnic.  Hipster Plume from Anna Aspnes.

It's been a while since we've seen that California blue sky!  A couple more of my P365 pictures from the week, the one from the 17th hole was on Tuesday, the one day it didn't rain in the afternoon and so we were able to get out and play golf, then on Wednesday we walked down the Silver Creek hill to see the green, green other side of the hills.  This layout is for the Blueprint Challenge at Design House Digital.  To make the journaling pop, I used a low opacity watercolor brush behind the journaling, perfect to make it stand out but still blend with the background tree photo.
