Hi everyone.
This month I thought we could look at using a not so great photograph in a new way.
Here is this month's photo. It is a macro shot of an australian native grass -
But you don't have to use this one - keep reading.

I used this slightly blurry photo to make 2 digital papers.
The challenge is to either:
A use one [or both if you wish]of these papers in your layout
OR
B have a go at making your own paper with your photo and use it.

To help you here (http://demiurgia-mylife.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/creative-uses-for-your-dud-photos.html)is a link to how I made my papers.[on my blog]

The papers of mine are these 2.
They are each linked to the larger size and you may use as you wish.

It is a close up of the seed head on a tall native grass. I will try and find a photo or take one of the bush to show you. I was trying to get a close up as I bought a macro lens and have been madly taking photos of everything up close lol.
Can't wait to see what you come up with.

Yes it is. I like those animals, they look so cute!
We made a trip trough Australia on our honeymoon in 2002.

But I have to make a correction on the layout, I will upload the right one when I'm finished.
(couldn't sleep over it... LOL!)

They are really cute - BUT really noisy and they have really sharp claws lol. I haven't seen one for awhile but our old house we would see them occasionally in the trees. You have probably seen more of australia then me lol.

Wow that would have been fantastic. I have been to darwin last year. It is too hot for me but we had a quick look at Kakadu which was awesome. Sydney a couple of times and it is fantastic and i love melbourne. I haven't been to Uluru yet just like a lot of australians lol.

Yes, it was.

We did go to Uluru, walked around it. Very impressive rock.
I like Sydney most.

But like you we Dutch people often don't go to see the tulips (Keukenhof) for an example ;-)
