The Chameleon Flowers: Fully CASTable Art
These flower paintings are somewhat in the style of American painter Georgia O’Keeffe, but not entirely, because many of them employ a mixed-media approach.
There are ten paintings in the one file, and every part, frame and art, can be recolored to a scheme that matches the décor of your Sim’s home.
Here is an example of some recolors of a few of the paintings.
More pictures of recolors are available at the bottom of the page among the thumbnails, along with a picture showing color channels.
Nine of the images were created with various Photoshop brushes; one image began as a picture of a piece of counted-cross stitchery and was transformed (through Photoshop magic) into a watercolor.
No expansion or stuff packs are needed. The mesh was play tested on a base game fully patched to 1.38, and on a game full of expansions and stuff packs using 1.38. It might work with other levels, but there are no guarantees.
I love thanks and welcome comments, and of course, please report any problems you have here in this thread.

Thanks to Delphy, Inge & Peter Jones, Wes Howe for MS plugins, and Darkwaif for free flower and seahorse Photoshop brushes.
This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below for more information.

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.
For Package files:
1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
For Sims3Pack files:
1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).
Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.
