Bokeh for Photo Art Friday

 

pink-mums-in-blue-cup-with-textures

I tried to follow Bonnie’s tutorial on creating art with the poster edges and her texture called Memories of Paris.  I got kind of mixed up but in the end of I liked what I had done and left it there.    The bokeh overlay came from a Life Texture Pack from www.imagenskins.com that I downloaded some time ago.  

Photo Art Friday is hosted by Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art.   Have a wonderful weekend. It is supposed to rain here all weekend.   My house has not had a good cleaning lately as I have been out in the garden as much as possible so with the rain I can make some inroads on the clutter.

What a charming still life. Love how the scripted page from the textures seems to lie on the table beside the cup and saucer. The bokeh in the corner is the perfect touch for your desaturated look. As you can see, I love it! Thanks for sharing your artwork with Photo Art Friday, Valerie.
Beautiful artwork Val. Good luck cleaning up the clutter, when you are done can you do mine. Jen.

I love what you have done!! and totally love that cup and saucer! They have been calling for rain here for over a week but it never comes and I, like you have been relishing the opportunity to be in the garden all day ... but my gardens need rain now so I hope it really comes!

Valerie, this is so lovely! Great editing and composition.
Very pretty Val, I like the purple teacup.
I preferred to clean today and still have to get out in the garden. It's been so dry, the soil is blowing right off the farmers' field - into our house. Even the floor felt gritty.

I think this is just wonderful. You started with such a marvelous still life (LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the shadow cast by the saucer) and added just the right amount of magic. Beautifully done!!!

Lovely image (again - all your images are so beautiful). So maybe with all the rain predicted for the weekend, I'll finally sit down and try and figure all this computer stuff out. Almost don't know what to do with myself, it's been so long since we've had a rainy weekend.

You did an outstanding job with the bokeh. This image is perfect for bokeh. Nice touch with the Memories of Paris texture too. I haven't used yet but I'm going to use it on my next piece.

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
