Flower Art Friday entry click on the link:
Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week. The summer is quickly winding down and soon it will be time for kids to head back to school. Coleen wrapped up her swimming lessons this week and while it continues to be quite hot outside we are doing well and enjoying the remainder of the summer weather while it lasts.
This week Bonnie (Pixel Dust Photo Art) gave us the optional theme of: Gifts.
I thought a lot about this and what I wanted to do through out the week. Nothing was coming together like I wanted it too and then I had an idea and before I knew it my piece/s came together.
I don't know how "Spiritual" you may or may not be but both of my pieces today are more on the religious note and are quite personal to me. I do not intend for them to (offend) anyone nor am I suggesting that your beliefs need be the same as mine. Instead I am just sharing something that means a lot to me and I hope you enjoy the process of how these came about.
Photo's used in this piece:
I also cropped the cross photo below and used various techniques on Pic Monkey on both photo's until I had them the way I wanted and then I over layed the 2 photo's together. I used textures already on Pic Monkey for this piece.
Next up is a piece called the Fruits of the Spirit. - This one is more on Gifts (or Fruits) from the Spirit to us. I also think regardless of spiritual believes that each of the fruits/gifts listed can indeed be a gift that we each can possess in our lives.
I was actually able to use the Gimp program on this piece to alter some of my photo's and create a unique piece that is different from what I normally share.
