Photo Art Friday - March 1, 2013

Can you believe it's March already! - Only 19 days left until the 1st Day of Spring! (and my birthday).

Right now though it's time to head on over to Pixel Dust Photo Art for this weeks
Photo Art Friday.  This weeks optional theme was,  "Vintage." 

I have 2 pieces to share with you today. 

I started with this photo:

I first went to Befunky.com and used the watercolor feature there.  Then I went back to PicMonkey and added Bonnie's texture:  Blue Missive to the photo.  I believe I used Hardlight at 100%.  Then I used the Daguerreotype feature (Plumbe) and came up with the piece below.  It reminds me of an antique French Postcard.










































Next I chose this photo of our city park's Gazebo:

For this piece I cropped the photo.  Added Bonnie's textures:  Virtually Vintage and Creative canvas.  I added a Sketched frame and a Museum Matte frame to the piece as well.

Below is the result:







Don't forget to stop by Bonnie's blog and check out the other particpants art work.

Have a great weekend.

  13. Look how the shadows POP off the vintage photos.....I love both of your pieces! Thanks for letting us know how you did it, too.

  14. Your editing really has turned each image into a piece of vintage art. I love that you describe the grapes as a vintage French postcard--so right on. The bandstand photo seems like it could have been taken in the late 1800s or early 1900s. I'd say you nailed this assignment!

  17. Wow! I love these, especially the first one! Very vintage feel to it. I've not heard of Befunky, I'll be checking them out. I haven't done a lot of post-processing, but I think it's fascinating! Congrats on your new camera, I've had mine for almost two years and still have a lot to learn! Thank you for you kind comments on my blog!

  20. That Gazebo looks terrific! I need to go back and do a real vintage image. I just could not make myself take the color out of my image. Maybe just maybe I can try again. Thanks so much for stopping by!
