Photo Art Friday & Flower Art Friday - May 25, 2012

Yep it's that time again folks.  Time to join me for Photo Art Friday
and Flower Art Friday.

First up is my entry for Photo Art Friday. - This week Bonnie gave us the option of:
A - Any piece of Photo Art or...
B - a piece of abstract photo art created with a design from nature.  -  I chose (B) for my Photo Art.

Here are the pictures I used for my piece:  The first thing I did was open the phto of the Nasturtium leaves in Gimp.  Then I used the Distort Filter on Whirl and Pinch.  I saved that photo and uploaded it to Pic Monkey where I added Kim Klassen's texture:  Let Go  I played around with the settings on PM such as Urbane and Boost after adding the texture.  Then I uploaded the photo of the purple blossom as a texture as well and did a little more adjusting until I ended up with the piece below. I added the Grunge Frame on Pixlr-O-Matic.








I also did another piece using this picture of one of my Dahlia's.

For this piece I also uploaded in Gimp and used the Distort-Whirl and Pinch filter.  Then I added the Grunge Frame in Pixlr-o-Matic and ended up with this:



Next is my entry for Flower Art Friday on LeAnne's Blog, Photo's by LeAnne.

Texture in this piece is: Notes to Myself from Bonnie @ Pixel Dust Photo Art.

Please stop by both Bonnie and LeAnne's blogs and check out all the great Photo and Flower Art entries.  You won't be disappointed. 

Have a fantastic weekend.
