Color Me Beautiful

Abstract green branch

I had fun turning this sprig of green leaves into photo art...I used Bonnie's "Drops of Jupiter" texture at Difference/80%. I then used the dry brush effect on the image at 47%. Next, I added a layer of an old image I found at Flickr Creative Commons (public domain/copyright free) and used a reverse layer mask to bring in only the floral border of the layer along the edges - difference/100%. I loved the colorful results! Click on the button to visit Bonnie's beautiful blog and see some other creative photo art.

  1. Sherri - the leaves look like they are laying on a beautiful placemat - that's how 3-dimensional the image is! Love it. So happy you shared it with Photo Art Friday.

  4. Thanks so much, everyone - I forgot to add: I definitely also used a reverse layer mask to remove all the texture from the sprig of leaves.
