Photo Art Friday, September 6th - 7th

Hello my Lovelies!

It's time to prepare and hang your digital photo art in our virtual art gallery, aka as Photo Art Friday or PAF.

If you are new to Photo Art Friday, you can read the guidelines for participation here.

Please remember that the central focus of this linky party is to showcase photographs that you have digitally manipulated into a piece of photo ART.  While you may feel (as I sometimes do) that your photo is more beautiful than the artistic version of it, we still want to see your digital ART work here. The great thing is you can always display the photo your art piece was created from, in your post. That way, we get to enjoy both!

The OPTIONAL theme for this month's Photo Art Friday is "WATER".  You can share photo art that contains any form of water, if you choose to go with the theme/challenge. But you always have the option to share any piece of your photo art.

If you need a texture with some water droplets on it to make your piece of photo art, I released a free one for you here.

I chose to 'artify' photos of plants/flowers with droplets of water on them:


This photograph of variegated leaves does have droplets of water on it.  However, because the texture was blended in Difference they appear green.  After the texture application I ran this piece through RadLab and used the stylets, Boutwell Magic Glasses and Cool As A Cucumber.  A soft application of the filter Photo Edges completes the artistic manipulations.  You can see the components that make up this piece in the spread below.



 The photo art, one of my pdpa script textures and the photograph of leaves with water droplets.


A macro shot of a nasturtium flower with water droplets, transformed in Photoshop without any texture or RadLab application this time.



The next edition of Photo Art Friday is scheduled for the first Friday in October - the 4th. As always, I will give you a little 'heads up' warning a week or so before.


The optional theme/challenge for October will be:


SKY

Your photo art should contain some element of sky (clouds, sunrise, sunset, rainbow, blue sky, etc) ... easy peasy!  :)

  12. Bonnie you art is always such a joy to see. The purple piece is lovely and I enjoyed seeing the different elements you used but I've got to say that next one just blew me away. I love how vibrant and alive it is. This was a fun challenge. So much so that I had to do a second post today.
