Photo Art Friday's eTheme this week is to try something different, something we haven't previously done - a new technique perhaps.
My roses seem to be doing so well even though the nights have been downright cold for Southern Calif. I played for two days with different textures, filters, blend modes. I really like this one SOOC.
I do believe the Double Delight is my absoute favorite, hands down. It has beautiful form (the perfect point that opens magnificently. It has a luxurious fragrance. It has incredible variety -- no two blooms are ever quite alike. Some have more red. Some are almost white with just a tinge of red on the edges. And some have quite a bit of yellow when they are first cut.
I love all kinds of flowers and foliage in the garden, but it's really hard to beat roses. They really add joy to my life!
I love the subtle look of this with French Kiss'
"Stone Blush" texture and French Kiss' "French Script" brushes.
and then there's
this look with French Kiss' "Stone Blush" and "Purple Prose" textures. I'm in love with this look.
this look with FK's Stone Blush texture and French Script brushes plus Topaz Adjust filters. Don't they just look delicious?
Then there's this fun look I got by using Topaz Adjust filters.
Everyday's a special day when I can spend time playing with Photoshop. I love that I can take the worst images that I would have discarded and make them star quality!
Oh yes, I almost forgot. I'm taking another class with Marie Otero called "Digital Photo Magic". The beautiful Double Delight below is from my week 1 projects.
and finally something a little different for Photo Art Friday. I used Kim Klassen's "Canvas Back" texture.
Hope you are planning on checking out the exquisite art work from everyone participating in
Photo Art Friday.
