Photo Art Friday Challenge

I think I'm running a week behind on challenges for Photo Art Friday.  However, Bonnie is so cool, she makes suggestions and then says "either do the challenge or whatever you wish".  Makes it easy...... no pressure.
I was supposed to do this last week.  Bonnie had the recipe for doing this.....essentially making a collage of several images and then using lots of different filters including the wave filter.  I played around with it so much I cannot remember which filters I used.  I started with this group of images which are pieces of art I've done....
 and I then added the wave filter and played with that for a while before subjecting it to additional filters for these.  


Then I played for a couple hours with theses images, added one of my homemade textures and used the twirl filter, which is added going in clockwise and then in counterclockwise directions for my final look here.
I like the fact that I achieved so many looks.  If only I had more time, I could play forever.
Alas......I really do have to get some things done around here.
I think you will like the other examples that the PAF group have done, so have a look at them too!

It looks rather magical.

My goodness, you are addicted! I love the PSE options as well but before I know it hours have gone by and I'm still playing..... I just love your wavy results (I want to try it too); they look like pieces of art!

I really love the colors and final look that you have achieved on this. Would love to also see the original photos that you have used to combine. Love this though! Doing these creations can, truly, take up an amazing amount of time in what only feels like a minute.

Jeanne said...

Ah, now I see the lovely art that you have combined. Guess I am used to reading from the end forward. LOL. Beautiful!

I love the final piece after all is done. Why, that would make an excellent focal point in any room on the wall if you ask me.


Today, I have two art pieces....one church and one iris. You'll need to scroll down a bit on my blog entry to view. Do come by and visit if you can find time. CLICK HERE Have a great Friday.

I love these, Marilyn!
I'm lucky to get one post in per week these days - hibernation, energy low :)

I think the final image is pretty good. I like that big wave centering the image. :)

I figure playing with textures is really learning -- and learning is a good thing!

Love your creations, Marilyn. I can see that you had fun creating these. :)
