poppies

Lesson 1
A Simple Page
Hello! My name is Kim and this is the entry page of my Portfolio for Red Rose Web Design.

I created the main image in Paint Shop Pro by using a photo from freefoto.com and feathered the edges to blend in with the background.
Below are the tiles I made by picking out shades of green from the main image.
The main background tile was made by cutting out a poppy and mounting it on a green background, feathering the poppy, then using the filter Simple/quick tile I created a seamless tile. I remounted it on another green background and lowered the opacity by half to give it a muted look.
The gradient was made by using a darker and lighter green than the plain background.
