PAF Day

Here it is Friday again, and I almost forgot.  I had prepared my image earlier in the week and got busy.....you know how that goes.  I decided to go for a realistic look rather than abstract.
I love Bonnie's new Flash of Gold texture.  I used two layers on this image (actually two images blended together), one on darken 100% and one on vivid light 100% and then removed most of the texture from the flowers.  I tried a couple different finished looks -- one included a frame from Picnik
and the other I framed with a grungy frame using my Photo Essentials 4 plug in.
I love what Bonnie did this week, her collage, the portrait of her granddaughter and the gorgeous abstract.  Be sure to check it out and while you're there check out all the entries for this week.

Have a fabulous week and we'll meet again next week.

Love that touch of gold!

Love what you have created here Marilyn!! I wouldn't have thought that a white grunge texture would look so good with the flowers and the gold - but it's great!! You really have to try things to find out what works and what doesn't, don't you?

Thank you for sharing your always lovely art work and interesting process with Photo Art Friday.

These are just gorgeous and love the colors of these two photos combined. The texturing is just perfect with it.... think I might prefer the first as I am sort of a "dark" person. Beautiful. Be sure to stop in my blog and get a chance to win some of Bonnie's custom textures.

Marilyn, this is gorgeous!!
I especially love the first one. I picture this enlarged, and hanging on a wall for all to see.
Have a wonderful week ahead!

These are GREAT! I really like the first one, the way the flowers pop, but that second one with the scraped edges is so different - I love it! Great entries this week!
