Flower Art Friday - 08/24/2012


This is the last gladiolus from the garden with some caryopteris and catnip thrown in. I love the combination of yellow and purple flowers.

Edited in Pixlr using Vintage Craquelure, a free texture from Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art. (Layer Multiply 75%, duplicate layer Overlay 51%, flatten image, lighten image, add border, add watermark.) Jeez, I hope that makes sense! LOL!!
I want to thank everyone who puts that kind of info on their photo art, it is really helping me start to figure out how to do some of this stuff! :)

Linking with Flower Art Friday, Floral Friday Fotos, Weekly Top Shot and Your Sunday Best.

Hi Candy!
That is so pretty.

I'm thinking this photo is meant to look like a painting with some crackling going on, to look aged?!
Cause ...that's what I thought it was.

great job. It's beautiful.
I'd hang it in my room on my flower collage wall!

Oh, your flower art is lovely, Candy! I love the canning jar, too.

Kathy Felsted Usher said...

This is a photo?! It looks like a painting. How cool!

Kay said...

Beautiful effects! It looks very soft and painterly -- and quite worthy of a frame and nice spot on the wall.

Wonderfully creative editing of a lovely photo ~ (A Creative Harbor)

Lovely bouquet and in my favorite 'vase!' Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #45!

Deb Crecelius said...

Excellent job;
yes, your process makes sense :)

Jill said...

I would love to have this framed in my home!

Carletta said...

Well, I'd say you've figured some things out really well - this is LOVELY!

NoDak Herefords said...

Very nice work here. I agree with the yellow and purple mixture - it is a natural (look at pansies!). Also by using a plain glass jar you did not distract from the beauty. Very nice editing and to think I just do some cropping and light adjustment - how boring!!

Pat said...

Really pretty!

Lisa Lynn said...

Gorgeous! Love it :)

Elise Ann Wormuth said...

Very nicely done -- the only little thing I might suggest is to brush away a little of the texture on your main subject -- it will make it stand out more. But it's beautiful as is.

Nancy Claeys said...

I thought this was a painting! Lol. Great editing Candy. xo

Janet said...

Buttons said...
