Digital Creation

This week for Photo Art Friday one of our options was to submit any work of art we wished.  I'm posting some edits of a portrait shot of my grand.  
Here's the original
The next two edits were done in Topaz Adjust after PSE.  I selected their option "surprise me".  I incorporated an image of daisies in the first image and lowered the opacity.
On the second image I used some of my background paintings as textures. I lowered the opacity and left the design on her face in the second image.  I may have also used Topaz Adjust on this one and I think I used hard light blend.
This edit was a PSE edit using the wave filter.  Again my two background paintings were used as textures.
and finally another Topaz Adjust edit using the "smooth and flat" option.
I think I'm partial to the first edit with the daisies.  That is probably because purple and green and all shades of both are my favorite colors. 
You definitely want to link over to Photo Art Friday and see the other entries.

Now go and have yourself a "happy spring" week!

How fun it is to experiment with all those varieties of filters and visual expression.

Beautiful effects...my favorite is the one with your art as the background! Your granddaughter is lovely. :)

I like the first 2 as well because her face isn't distorted at all. I think my fave is probably the first one though I find it distracting that the one petal is covering her eye so if it were me I'd probably erase that part of the flower. But I do love the way the flowers are in her hair and background - very cool ideas!

Your Granddaughter is gorgeous and I loved the different edits. I think my favorite is the 1st one with the Daisies too. Well done.
