I'm Late, I'm Late for a Very Important Date!!

I almost did not get my entry done for Photo Art Friday.
 I'm having a hard time with re-entry after the holidays. 
 Thank goodness Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art was kind enough to share her lovely 
"faded fresco" texture with us. I used it with an photo I took of 
Xavier del Bac Mission outside of Tucson, AZ. Though I like it with the linear light blend I really liked the difference blend which gave it some wonderful color.  If you go to Bonnie's blog, she gives instructions on how to make a border (as I did in the bottom photo) using your crop tool. Thanks, Bonnie!

Very nice! I really like how this turned out, and will have to try out Bonnies tutorial on this. Lovely!

Lovely texture work, Marilyn. And, I also like the framing that Bonnie provides. I have used it myself. Thanks for sharing. Neat place in Tucson

Using the difference blend mode did add lots of color and made it a little more painterly somehow. Took it out of the realistic realm and into the paint with emotion realm.

Wonderful work with the texture. I love the colors in the second edit.

Hi Marilyn really like your two photos! I have never tried digital art but I know you can do a lot with it. Someday I will try it! Linda M

The difference blending mode turns the picture into something completely different. I like both effects very much - and what a great motif anyway!

Great edit of this mission. It looks like a very fascinating place. I like the colored version but I'm leaning more towards the linnear version as my favorite of the two. It has such a warm feel about it.
