Hello! - Happy Friday. - It's time once again to join Bonnie over on Pixel Dust Photo Art for, Photo Art Friday, This weeks suggested theme, Surprise. That's a pretty wide opened theme. I'm pretty much always surprised by anything I create as Photo Art because it's all so new to me.
For this week I started out with a photo of some Thistles that I took while on my walk last weekend with Coleen. I started playing around in Gimp using some of Bonnie's textures and trying to learn how to do Layer Masks etc...I'm not very good at trying to figure out directions in Gimp and mostly I just fiddled around on my own and I think that I actually got a mask to work the way I wanted it to but I have no clue as too what I did so I have no formula to tell you about as far as the results I got. - Sorry.
Here is the first of my attempts:
Next up I tried the same texture and on this one the Thistles showed up just the way I wanted them to.
Not much of a surprise but a lesson learned.
Anyway I used Kim Klassen's texture, Simplicity for this one and then added a quote using Picnik. This is being entered for Texture Tuesday.
So don't forget to check out the other enteries for PAF. Have a great day.
