Oscraps April challenge #5 is to create a page entirely from freebies, especially using the Oscraps Seven collab in a non-birthday page.
I love this mask I created for the collab with it's ourside border of clock faces and used it to mask the photo of the mustard weed field at the bottom of the hill, blended again into the background. A few swirlies and I was done.
I found this great little factoid about the wild mustard. Wild Mustard is thought to have been introduced to California by the Franciscan Padres who scattered the seeds along the Camino Real to make the road easier to find.
Blooming from January to May, it marks the passage of California Spring.
