i like it. love the texture used on the hot air balloon. i haven't mastered the gimp yet; though i know it has some neat functions, my desktop gets crowded with the gimp.

nice job!

This reminds me of 70s patches I had on my jeans. Think there was a balloon amongst my mushrooms :) The sky isn't denim - but well done!

Wonderful texture! I love the massiveness of the ballon in contrast to the small basket...are those flags or laundry??? I know, that's probably a silly question. Here's another silly question..what's the gimp?

Hi - thanks for all the comments.

I'm still struggling with the gimp - I have no idea how to do things but I like experimenting. I used a canvas texture on the balloon in a layer and then magic wanded bits and removed them to make it look rubbed.

Carla asked "are those flags or laundry?" - I think the answer must be flags that look like laundry...

Should I have made the dandelion seed show up more???
