Photo Art Friday - March 15, 2013

Welcome to Photo Art Friday ! - Here you will find many wonderful pieces of photo art.  Bonnie offered up the "optional" theme of Portrait this week. 

Here are my contributions:  These 1st two pieces are photo portraits of our neighbors cat, Helix.  For this one I used a great texture that I found here:  Lenebem-Anna has lots of very cool looking (Free) textures you can use for your photos. I added the photo frame in Pic Monkey.




Same kitty,  different look and texture:


This one uses a Kim Klassen texture called, Organic.  You can find it here:

Finally a piece that I played around with (a lot).  Do you think it's a bit much?

I started with a photo of Coleen and the Clown at the Kid's Rodeo that the communtiy college put on last week.  Then I added Bonnie's texture: Vintage Vellum and then a layer of a Weave texture from Pic Monkey that resembled Denim jeans.  I added a frame that I found and inverted the color to white and then erased out areas over their faces etc... to get the end result.

  3. Wonderful Ida! My favourite is the first image of the cat. I've got a dog and a cat, so I'm a sucker for shots like this!

  4. oh my goodness, Ida!!! these are wonderlicious and so creative!!

    I love your last "hurrah" here very much. it's quite an unusual take and clearly the result of a very busy brain that has amazing vision!!!

    have you made some changes on your website?! I am noticing some sparkle and shine, but realise it may BE my own lack of attention to detail recently.

    wonderful stuff!! thanks for the links, too!!
