The Life of a Dandelion

I've been working in the garden today, adding mulch to all the beds to clean things up and hopefully deter some of the weeds that seem to flourish in our garden.  Before my husband had a chance to pull them all, I took some photos of the dandelions in their various stages of development so that I could play with the tutorial Kim gave us in Beyond Layers this week.  Now all I need to do is to figure out how to slow it down so it's not quite so dizzying to look at.

Update: still trying to learn how to slow down the gif, but I did figure out a trick that seems to help.

Update #2:  I learned another Photoshop trick from Kim so I've added this multi-image shot of the same photos used in the animation.


  1. Great job with the tutorial, Linda. I haven't tried yet. The dandelion stages worked really well with this!

    1. Thanks Kate. It was a fun little project. I can see having some fun with this animation.

  2. I never gave much thought to a dandelion's life before.... Sounds like you're learning more interesting things in Beyond Layers. Our group gets a letter from Kim today. :o)

    1. I must say I never had either, but they were a perfect image for trying the animation because we had them in all stages of 'openness'. LOL
