photo art friday

Yes, it's only Thursday, but Bonnie (Pixel Dust Photo Art) opens her links early, and I've got a couple things, so there you go.  She was going to take a hiatus from PAF through the summer, but thankfully has changed her mind!  I love the range of creativity that shows up from her participants.

This week I wasn't terribly inspired with "new" ideas, so just worked in my semi-comfort zone.....

First, a simple version of tulips with a rainy overlay and Bonnie's texture Grunge Surprise (didn't note the blending & opacities, sorry).

Then I got fancy (or weird) and layered in some more photos, did some erasing, added another texture, discarded lots of options and settled on this....

  1. Great photos, love those rainy tulips. There are some tulip fields near here, your photo reminds me of them! Valerie

  2. Wonderful effects, especially when you got "weird"...lol. That's when the photo art becomes really fascinating and beautiful, in my opinion...thank you for sharing! :)

  3. I love your use of textures here, I just found a broken car mirror on my walk earlier and have taken some pics to use as a texture! The tulips really ase beautiful :)

  4. Thank you Terrie, for your lovely comment on my comment and on our strengths......

  5. Very creative and certainly not, "weird". I love the tulips in the rain but I also enjoyed the creative piece and seeing how you blended all the different elements together.

  6. Gorgeous creations!

  7. Terrie, these are really beautiful!
    I especially love the way the first one fades into the background.
    Beautifully done!
    I wish you a great weekend ahead!
