JACARANDA BEAUTY

I've finally come up for a little air.....I was so immersed in painting.  Bonnie of Photo Art Friday gave us a beautiful new texture to use in our entries for PAF.  It's called "Leafy Landscape"

First I applied it to an image I have of a very large jacaranda tree in my neighborhood.
Did not do too much to it other than change the blend mode.
I tweaked it a bit more and added a frame from On One
Then I added a Topaz preset and another frame from On One.  I love the riot of color in this one.  Easy peasy.
Come join us to see the other interpretations using Bonnie's texture.  Just click on the button below.

looks as if you have had fun with this texture... think that the second is my fave! Very nice and what a gorgeous tree to photograph!

Very nice work. Each one is different and unique. The first is my favorite because I just like the soft, subtle feel it has.

I like the frame and the focus of the tree in the 2nd piece.

The last one is vibrant and alive with such fun color.
