Photo Art Friday - Collages

 If you are here for Good Fences or Wild Bird Wednesday you can find links to both memes in the Archive section on my sidebar.

It's time to join Bonnie (Pixel Dust Photo Art) for her monthly Meme:  Photo Art Friday.  This months theme was: Collage.

I wish I had Photo Shop or another program in which to make up different types of collages but I don't so I'm going with a pretty simple collage look that I put together on Pic Monkey.



The 1st piece is a basic collage of some blooming trees that I've take around town lately.




Please click to enlarge for better detail.

Then I took 3 of the photos from this collage and added 3 of Bonnie's Textures to them and made a separate collage.  This is the one I will be featuring for the Voting. 



Textures used: Memories of Paris (White Dogwood Blooms)
Dappled Dawn (Golden Chain Tree)
Musique (Lilac Tree).

Be sure to stop by Bonnie's blog and check out the other participants.

Next month's theme:  Monochromatic. -  Why not give it a try.

  2. Lovely collages, Ida. It's interesting to see which plants you have growing in your part of the world. We have pretty much the same stuff over here. I use Picmonkey too, and I think it's a really good service - especially as it's free. Have a great weekend, Bonny

  15. Love, love your header flower photo. But, anyway on the collage, really love what you did Ida and such lovely colorful flowers. Really nice. :)

    So far some flowers are sprouting around here, but nothing colorful yet so enjoyed seeing yours.

  16. Very pretty images. First couple of times I did a collage, it took me *hours.* Not so this time. I use LR 5 and have free collage templates I used for mine plus it helped that every time I thought an image would work I put it in a collage folder. When it came time to put it together, I already had edited images in one place. in fact I had more images in that folder than I ended up using.

  23. Oh, my goodness, be still my heart! Gorgeous! Hey, I've got Photoshop Elements and I know I should be able to make collages in it, but I don't. Takes hours to figure something out and then I forget it by the next time I want to do it. Love those textures you add. So beautiful!

  25. Gorgeous! I think my favorite is the photo at the very top, in your blog banner. Such delicate blooms, almost open. Don't you love Picmonkey? I do so many things there, both for my blog and my soap business. And it's free! I hope your collage wins :)
