Photo Art Friday - January 3, 2014

Welcome! - It's time for the very first Photo Art Friday of 2014. Bonnie (Pixel Dust Photo Art) is the wonderful host of this meme.  Be sure to pop by her blog and check it out.

 The optional theme this month was to choose a "word" that you would like to focus on throughout the coming year and showcase it in a piece of photo art.

For me I find it rather hard to pick a word out because I tend to live life more on a (day to day) basis and concentrating on a particular word just seems to take some of the excitement and mystery out of what may or may not happen in this year. 

At any rate I do think that the word in my piece is something that is achievable no matter who you are: (Be sure to click to Enlarge)


Amour  or LOVE as I am choosing is a perfect word.  I'm choosing to love more this year.  Love life, Love Others, Love God, Love Photography, Love Photo Art, Love Learning New Things ...well you get the picture.

Believe it or not the (heart) is this piece is actually a potato chip.  I  liked it's heart shape and put it on one of our dinner plates, photographed it and then played around with textures (Bonnie's Heartache by the Numbers) and some cool effects from Pic Monkey completed the look.

Thank you for stopping by.

  4. It takes a good eye and some great artistry to make such a beautiful image from a potato chip!! Love how you used the texture to highlight the 'amour' in the middle of your 'heart'. Delightful piece.
