Oneness

For my Photo Art Friday entry I was searching through my photos and found this one that I had taken at a local nursery in their gift shop.  It was during the holidays.......they had so many beautiful Christmas trees and so much "eye candy" to look at, it was almost overwhelming.  This photo called out to me (you can see the original by running your mouse over the image)......I decided to use Kim Klassen's "Annabelle" texture as well as Bonnie's "Ephemeral" texture.  I used a layer mask to remove texture from my subject.  At the last minute I decided to add one of my new transparent overlays from French Kiss.   The final result is really different and I love the colors.   But then those of you who know me know I'm partial to analogous combinations..... 

He who is rooted in oneness realizes that I am in every being;
wherever he goes, he remains in me.

I often go to First Sip in the morning for quiet time and inspiration.  She has some wonderful writing of her own as well as beautiful quotes from others.  Check it out.  You will feel soooooooo serene.
Do look at all the other wonderful entries here......the talent is outstanding.

I love how you used the texture to remove the background clutter. Great result.
Stay inspired!

The colours and softeness of the tones that you chose give the image a glowing sense serenity and spirituality. The textures provide a good depth and feeling of age. I like the simple font/message that you inscribed down the side to balance it all out and provide another level. Lovely.
