Collage/Painting Jumble

It's day 10 of my cleansing detox and I'm re-introducing items that were verboten during either days 5,6 and 7 or all days
I had some Mary's Gone Crackers pretzels which are gluten free "twigs".  Ingredients are rice flour, flaxseed, chia seeds and a host of other good-for-you goodies.  They had been my go-to snack when I was gluten-free.  They are so good, I kept them after realizing I don't have sensitivities to gluten.  I think that's it.  No cheese yet, and I guess I would be better off without, but come on.... what good is pizza, even a gluten free pizza from Z's Pizza, without cheese??
Okay it's time for Photo Art Friday again.  Bonnie's instructions.....
use a theme of "hardware" or post any artistic creation we choose.  I'm going with the latter.
I had in my archives a digital collage including an image of sea shells and an image of my drawing of a woman.
 and I shot a tiny piece of my painting for my Bloom True class.  My good friend Jacki taught me to get "closer" to my subject and take a little piece of it.
Then I just played with blend modes and filters.......and was able to get all these looks


I think this one below was done in mosaic filter.

 The image below was finished
 with the "extrude" filter.
and this one with watercolor filter.
 The one below which is one of my two favorites was finished in Topaz Adjust.
If you want to see some incredible edits head on over to Bonnie's Photo Art Friday link party.

You KNOW I'm loving these, Marilyn! The last is captivating with its shadows and light, but love them all.

Great pieces Marilyn,

Congrats on sticking with your detox program. That isn't easy I am sure!!! You are so fantastic with your textures, photo manipulation, everything. You keep learning and learning. You should post your own classes. Taking macros of your paintings make for brilliant textures....This entire post is so rich and delicious, loved looking at it. It is always thoughtful when you visit my "place" but so boring compared to what you can do. smiles: sharon

I am going to follow your lead and try out some of these things, comparing and contrasting. I love to lose myself in such worthy pursuits as I Wonder What Happens If...

Oh goodness where do I begin...Your pieces are very intriguing. I love the moody feel of them. Can't decide which I like the most.

My favourite piece is the last one . . . the subtle colour variations are perfect for the collage elements.
