Photo Art Friday - August 3, 2012

For Flower Art Friday click on the link.

Hello and Welcome. - It's Friday which means it's time to join me for some awesome Photo Art over on Pixel Dust Photo Art where Bonnie has given us the optional theme of using,
Doors in our art pieces.

It's been a bit of a busy week here so I didn't get out to find some interesting doors to photograph so instead I decided to do a small collage of doors from our own house and see what I could do with them.

Here is my piece,  Click to enlarge.

After I had my collage complete I added a texture to the left door only.  Then added the Daguerreotype  frame, the quote and the Museum Matte frame. 
Just in case you are wondering about the doors in the collage.  The left door is the door to my Stamping/Craft room.  The wall hanging on the door is very special to me as it was a gift from my dad. 

The top right hand door is on the back part of our house where we have a little storage room.  What's funny about that door is that one day the County Assessor was by and asked me if we had a law practice in our home.  I assured him that in spite of what the door says we don't run a law practice out of our home.  I mean come on, you can see that the door actually leads outside into our back yard and if he'd looked inside the room itself he would have noted that there certainly weren't any indications of a law practice going on in that room.  The door just happened to be one my hubby picked up off of some construction job he was working on and since we needed a door to the storage room that's what he used!

The middle door is Coleen's bedroom door.  We just painted her room earlier this year and those are the colors she picked out.  I like that she hung her pink hat on the door knob.

Lastly I had to include the Refrigerator Door, it's probably the most used door in the house!

So that's it for this week.  I hope you've enjoyed this little journey into the doors that make up parts of my world.

Don't forget to join in by viewing the other entries on Bonnie's blog or even giving it a go yourself.  Take care and have a great weekend.
