2. Continue with the "hidden in plain sight" idea or
3. Go with the Color, Green - because after all St. Patrick's Day is close at hand.
Can you guess which theme I went with?
Here are my starting Photo's - Click on them to enlarge:
The photo on the left is some moss growing on the side of a concrete wall and the photo on the right is some clover (shamrock) in our yard.
Here is what I did with the 2 photos:
For this version I rotated the Moss photo 90 degrees right and then over-layed the clover photo using Hard light at approx. 64-74 % Then I used a Filter feature in Gimp called, Illusion to create the circular effect. I added the Irish Blessing and the Frame with features on Picnik.
For this version I used the same 2 photo's as described above but then used a feature called, Mandelbrot Fractal Elements in Gimp to create all the different swirls of clover. I added the Text (Lucky) and a sort of hidden in plain sight element...can you guess what it is?
HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY - I'm not Irish but I've always dreamed of going to Ireland and someday I hope that dream will come true. In the mean time I'll just enjoy being Irish for a day.
Have a great weekend and be sure to visit all the other great entries for PAF.
