Photo Art Friday, October 12th, 13th



Welcome to this week's Photo Art Friday!

Everyone is welcome to showcase a piece of their photo art in our weekly virtual gallery.  The guidelines for participation can be found here.

This week, the optional prompt is the word "Liquid".  Can't wait to see your artistic interpretations!










To create the above piece of photo art, I used the texture "Bluebells" (rotated 180 degrees) from the pdpa Bedazzled Texture Set on a photo of water fountains taken at DisneyWorld in Orlando.











To create the above piece of photo-art, I used the texture "Lavender Dreams" from the pdpa Painterly Finesse Texture Set on the photo below.  If you look hard enough you will find a little stream which I think would qualify as 'liquid'.






For next week's Photo Art Friday prompt you have the option of using one of my textures (provided below) to create a piece of photo art. 

This texture is designed to use making photo art, not just to enhance a photograph ... but, as always, YOU will use it any way YOU want!  

Oh ...  and this texture is free for download only if you use it for next week's PAF.     ;-)  ;-)


Download the high res pdpa Leafy Landscape texture HERE.





The texture that can optionally be used for next week's Photo Art Friday is a busy one. Thus, I chose one of my test photographs with a lot of negative space in order to give you one simple example of how it can be used.

Couldn't just have a run-of-the-mill, beige texture for a photo art prompt - right?   I'll be interested to see the creative choices you will make using it!  Have fun!!

  5. Thank you for Blue Depths...it was fun to use it on an "unusual" image! Of course, it was a good challenge for me to create a "liquid" piece, as well. I love your "splashes" of liquid!

  9. Was happy to find that my mad bout of photo processing tonight happened to fit in with PDPA's gallery theme this weekend! That first image of yours, Bonnie, is just bursting with movement, life, and texture. It's a veritable celebration.

  13. Hi, Bonnie. My photo was no linking to water. But I have not visited to your blog for a while.
    So I wanted to sharing with you. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.

  14. I love how you took an ordinary picture of a fountain and turned it into a beautiful work of art. Thanks to you I now look at things a lot differently .

  15. Beautiful texture, Bonnie. I decided I'd better wait until next week to download it, to be sure I'm going to have time to participate! I hope the "bubbles" in my flower photos counts as liquid... I was stretching this week ;)

  16. It is wonderful how your textures enriched both of your pictures in very different ways ... one of action, one of tranquility. Both are qualities of water and now qualities of art. Interesting prompt for next week ... I love the texture and my subconscious mind is already flipping through ideas ... you are so much fun :)

  23. I really like the linear textures of the lavender dreams image - reminds me of an etching. Beautiful images and thank you for the explanations. I have collected the free texture and plan to work with it for next week:)
