Architecture for Photo Art Friday

 

Outer bldg edited

I took this photo last weekend when I was volunteering at the Sharon Temple.  This week for Photo Art Friday Bonnie asked us to create art on architecture so I thought of this one

 

outer shed

I used part of a tutorial that Bonnie gave us last week.  I took my photo into Photoshop and chose filters- artistic- find edges.   Then I added a PixelDust texture called age it. Finally I took it into Topaz Adjust 5 and chose a preset called Lomo I.   That is it.

Joining Photo Art Friday.   Have a great weekend.

Fabulous edit Valerie! It really looks like something you sketched and then added a touch of paint to ... Such fun to hear the 'how', too. Thank you for sharing your art with Photo Art Friday.

lovely processing on this! What a cute little barn this is
Heather said…
It looks like a pen and ink drawing. I'd be printing it off and framing it - love those old barns.

Excellent choices for effects! They combine to give the real feel of old weathered, cracked and flaking barn wood. The "find edges" makes it look like it could be an etching.
Wow, fabulous. Love it. Take care, Jen.

It's hard to imagine improving on the original photo, but you did big time!
Ida said…
Wonderful. I really like the subtle vintage feel your edit gave this barn.

This looks like an architectural rendering. Very nice.

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…
