Photo Art Friday - February 22, 2013

Welcome!  This weeks Photo Art Friday is all about,  Connections.  I decided to share a link to a couple of previous photos dealing with Connections that were part of another meme, (Scavenger Hunt Sunday) where one of the prompts was, Connections.  Before I share that link though I am sharing a new piece that I created for this weeks PAF.

Click to enlarge.

Below is the Original photo.  It's a garden decoration that my daughter received as a gift.















For this piece I first went to Pic Monkey and used Bonnie's latest FREE texture:  Scratched Lens - Hardlight 100% reversing the texture from top to bottom.
Next I added a layer of Bonnie's texture Dappled Dawn - Overlay at 50%
Then I used the Soften feature 30% Softness, Fade 50%.
Then I used the Tranquil effect fade at 50%
Next I added another layer of Scratched Lens this time in Multiply, Fade 75%.


Here are the 2 pieces that I did for (SHS) back in 2012:

  10. These are wonderful and I agree so much of our lives are dictated by our subconscious and molded by our dreams ... what a great connection. Your piece about nature is right up my ally and I love the laugh connection ... oh so true. You really are right on this week. Loved it!

  16. It's so pretty how your edits softened up the garden ornament photo. The colours are lovely; that splash of blue against the pale pink really makes the picture sparkle. Inspiring quote from Anais Nin that you applied.
