Photo Art Friday...Painterly Edition....

This week, for Photo Art Friday,
we have the 'Painterly' Edition.

I did this one a while back, but thought it would fit the theme this week.

I cropped it and cloned out some of the background.
Then I used two layers of Bonnie's 'Serve Life' texture...
one @ normal, 60%
& one @ multiply 60%.

Then, I masked the texture off the dove and some off the fence post.

Here's the original.

Thanks Bonnie, for the textures.

Texture Tuesday....Floral Beauty...

The Theme for this week's Texture Tuesday is 

I took this photo of a Gomphrena 'Fireworks' bloom,
and turned it into something calmer.

I used two layers of Kim's 'Oh My' @ softlight & one @ screen.
Then a layer of her 'Luminous' @ multiply.

I masked the textures off the flower, and then desaturated it all.  Then, I added a frame from Photoscape.

I think I like it.

I don't seem to have saved the original.  But, here's another picture of the same plant.
See the 'Fireworks'?

Be sure to go over to Kim's and see some nice texture work.

A Rose is a Rose...

Recently, we took a drive down to the 

They have a lovely Rose Garden.
I was lucky enough to get this shot.
Above is SOOC.

Here, I added one of Kim Klassen's textures...'Oh My'....and masked away some of the
texture on the rose.

It was a beautiful day, surrounded by beautiful flowers.

It's been quite a while, since I posted something on this blog.
I've been busy blogging over at my 

Thought I'd participate this week.

The prompt for 
Photo Art Friday
is 'vintage'.

I've had this in a file for a while, and can't seem to find any notes to tell me what I used.
I do know this uses a Coffeeshop vintage frame.

I'll try to do better with notes, next time.

Here's the original, taken on a fun trip to the Mexican Riviera.
