Did you get to wander through our virtual photo art gallery this past weekend? The photo art showcased was beyond great. I am truly running out of superlatives to describe the submissions. Thank you everyone. You're the best!
You inspire me to learn more, try harder, do better and just dive in and experiment with new forms of photo art. That's what I will be doing (among other things!) during Photo Art Friday's hiatus in the month of December. You know, there is nothing that says we can't pre-prepare images and then showcase them with PAF whenever we want. PAF will return on January 4th, 2013.
Kim, a loyal PAF participant asked me to post a few images using textures from my new pdpa Abstract Panache texture set. Thanks for the suggestion Kim. I'm happy to oblige. As the name suggests, they work well for making abstract photo art. But they can be used with most photographs. The effect is as subtle or dramatic as your blending selection. Of course, part of the artistry is finding the right texture to complete your vision. I have to admit, however, that some of my best creations have been happy accidents - and I can guarantee you some happy surprises using these textures. They are just full of artistic panache! :)
Here are a few examples of how I have used these textures:
