Just for Fun

Not much time this week.  Seems like life just got in the way, and I spent most of my spare time in my

class.  I decided not to get too distracted with the prompt for Photo Art Friday and just post my little

 piece of art.  

This is a piece I did in  Ann's  class using patterns which I created.

First the original.....

I chose this image because of the stark contrast background which I thought would be great for one

 of my patterns.  It takes me quite a while to do 

something like this only because

I don't know what I'm doing.  I have to keep referring to the video or my notes.  But 

eventually I should get more familiar and have faster results.    

I've enjoyed learning to make my own brushes and patterns and also new ways to use them.

You absolutely must check out Bonnie's post for this week's challenge.  Amazing what she did with a

 clematis, a wooden crate and one of her new textures.....quite spectacular.

Wow! Marilyn!

Gorgeous colors! Both are really beautiful but so different. Amazing to me, brushes are a mystery.

What are we going to play with Monday? Shall I bring my ipad or no? Whatever you want to do is fine with me. See you Monday.

You are one busy woman, Marilyn. That's a beautiful background and your treatment of the geraniums is gorgeous. Thank you so much for sharing your art and process with Photo Art Friday!

I really like what you have done here. The line and pattern is beautiful. And the background completes it. You might like to share your more orange work on Mandarin Orange Monday (opens again tonight). You obviously enjoying playing with images as much as I do:)
