Abstract Photo Art

Photo Art Friday

Today at Photo Art Friday we are supposed to merge three of our photos together and then, as always, use layers/effects to make the image look like a piece of art. I chose two photos of tree bark, and a third photo of some pink, daisy-like flowers. I used Bonnie's "Mauve Magic" at Vivid Light/100% on the barks (reverse mask), and then used the same Mauve Magic again on just the flowers (reverse mask) at Difference/100%. I then added an old, vintage wallpaper pattern over top of the far right panel only (reverse mask) to add some of the pretty robin's egg blue color (Darken/100%). To finish it all off, I used Radlab's "Oh Snap!" to make it pop a little more. I love the beautiful colors! I literally could play around with these art effects all day long.

  4. Very interesting; it is rather like a "textural triptych" and I really enjoy "texture." The color palette is very lovely, too. Thanks so much for sharing. Karen

  6. Nice piece and I'm with Kareninkenai on the "triptych" feel this has. How I can relate to getting carried away playing around with our photo art.

  12. I like the way you used the striping effect of the 3 different photos in different 'panels'. Great results.
