I LOVE talking about blocks, studying blocks, and playing with them in Photoshop... I am always on a quest for great blocks and trying to figure out what makes them so great ... So I started this companion blog that will be devoted to this quest. But also check out my regular blog at http://olderrose.blogspot.com

The one on the right actually extends the beige patch and if she extended it even further out it would lighten the whole area. The one on the left adds texture to the green patch making an embellished but quiet area.
