Bonnie's challenge this week was to create a piece of abstract photo art using these components:
- pdpa Dropped Petals texture/background
- and/or another pdpa texture,
- one or two images
- use these components to make an abstract piece of art
I have a hard time moving into the realm of abstract
as I tend to be
a bit of a traditionalists.
Background - pdpa 'Fill Me Up' Texture
2 of my photos merged onto the texture
added a layer mask to each photo to brush off the edges
Texture pdpa 'Drop Petal' was added
then added my watermark
flattened all the layers then increased the size under image/canvas size
changed the colour to grey and added the darker grey outline.
After trying many different pictures I settled on the above
but I played around using only one image
and I am hanging this one as well.
First took an image of a Cosmos
Added Watercolour filter
copied layer, added Pencil drawing filter
copied layer again, added Poster edge filter
flattened the layers
pdpa 'Drop Petal' texture was added as a background
layer mask added to brush away around the flower
added the image again, a layer mask added to brush away around the flower
pdpa 'Drop Petal' texture was added again with opacity decreased to 85%
adjustment layer added so a colour filter could be added, magenta
watermark added and all layers flattened
increased the size in edit/canvas size
changed colour to grey and added the grey outline.
