This week the suggested theme is: any piece of Photo Art or an Abstract Piece. So I chose the last one because it's just FUN to play around with photo's and see what you can do with them!
Before I Post I want to dedicate this post in memory of Davy Jones (Monkees) Dec.30, 1945-Feb.29, 2012

I started with the photo below: Which of course is certainly not "abstract" by any means. So I used one of Bonnie's Free textures: Dreams of Spring (yeah I'm still dreaming for Spring to arrive-it tried to snow this morning but it didn't amount to much.) Still....
Using GIMP I Inverted the flower photo and pasted the texture using Hard Light at 100% and got this:
Still not totally satisfied with the result I uploaded the photo to Picnik (sure am going to miss them) and used a feature there called, Hypnotic by Mr. doob that does some really strange things to photos. I got this:

So now back to Picnik and the Hypnotic feature to finish off with this (which is my favorite)
