Welcome and Happy Friday!

PHOTO ART FRIDAY  is hosted by Bonnie (Pixel Dust Photo Art).  This month's "optional" theme was Abstract Flowers.

Here is my submission:

I did a couple of other's as well which I'll share but since we are voting on people's favorites.  This is the one that you'll be voting on.

   The Original photo is below:

For my abstract version I used Bonnie's texture:  (Splash of Gold) twice, moving it over the 2nd time I added it.  I also used some special effects from Pic Monkey and a Frame from Pixlr-o-matic.


Here are my others:



Added Bonnie's texture (Fanciful) in Screen mode to the original photo, erasing most of it off the flowers.  Then used the Posterize feature on Pic Monkey and also the Orton effect to get this final version.

 Here is the original:


Finally:




















For this version all I did was use the Posterize feature on Pic Monkey.
 
Here is the original:
 


Don't forget to stop by Bonnie's blog and check out all the other great Floral Abstracts.

  8. Wow, what a variety ... I loved starting off with the monochromatic soft greens and then hopping over to pink ... takes your breath away. I love the pink flowers, probably my favorite of the three. They are all wonderful and I love the little bee ... hope we will start seeing more little bees in our future :)I enjoyed these, Ida ...

  18. most clever you are, Ms. Ida!! I like how you've played and then chosen the one you wanted folks to consider in the voting thing.
    I really like all your pieces and there is clearly so much one CAN DO, as we know, with these freebie editing tools.
    love that you showed the originals. I thought to DO that but never reminded myself when the time came.
    wonderful submissions!!

  19. Sorry if I'm posting twice, but wanted to be sure and leave a comment. Sometimes Blogger doesn't take my comments from my Wordpress site. Anyway, love the pinks in the flower and especially the last one looks very abstract. Enjoyed visiting and seeing your PAF for March. :)
