Always learning!

I've joined Mosaic Monday for years now and usually make my mosaics in Picassa. But this week I asked Gayle from at Muldoon how she made her mosaics and she introduced me to piZap. I liked all the choices they have with photo placement so these are what I came up with. Thanks Gayle!


I put together this one with photos of boats on the Withlacoochee River.

 

And I had roses from my spindly rose bush this week. 

 

I call them Shabby Chic roses. I made my girlfriend a birthday card with one of them. I'm so blessed to have good friends.

I’m joining Beautiful Sunday and
Lavender Cottage for Mosaic Monday

Beautiful, so glad to see a new program as I am getting tired to choices from Pic Monkey. Going to give piZap a look see.

How pretty! How on earth do you ever remember how to spell the name of that river? :)

Love seeing your pretty rose.

Your collages are great! The river one takes us right along the journey. And thank you for the recognition. I find piZap to be very user friendly.

Oh those are so pretty - especially love the roses. I can't grow roses in our yard - if the deer don't eat them (which they will) then black spot and leaf eaters get them - with the woods across the street we don't get enough steady sunshine to keep the roses growing healthy. I'll just enjoy your pretty ones. Hope your week is as wonderful as your mosaics my dear friend.

Very interesting! I too use Picasa, but the settings and choices are rather limited.
Your mosaics are wonderful, Diane! Thank you for sharing!
Have a lovely new week!

Judith @ Lavender Cottage said...

The river scenes and roses are awesome Diane. I've used piZap many times too and was just sent a new free collage maker to try and review.

Red Rose Alley said...

What a beautiful PINK rose. It's my second favorite color of rose. I didn't realize you have these in your garden, Diane. I don't see roses on your blog that often. This is a nice card you made your friend.

Have a nice rest of the week.
