Signs of Spring

Spring blossom is starting to appear around Melbourne at the moment.  The past few days we have had milder temperatures too.

I trialled some new ideas out on this one.  I used Tolouse's technique that he talked about on the "Ancient Fossdyke Canal" posting as a starting point for this one.  Also used the smart blur function in E4's programme.  Not a feature that I normally use.

Watercolour paper texture added at the resizing stage.
