Water Art

I am joining Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art for PhotoArtFriday. The theme for this month’s artwork is “water”.

I decided to do a little composite using a birdbath filled with stones I found on Google images and placed me on the edge.  My husband had taken a photo of me sitting on a stump in a local park.  I used the quick selection tool in Photoshop to cut me out of the photo and put me on a separate layer.  Then I resized it to look like I am sitting on the edge.  I used two textures of Bonnies called Antique deskpad and sweet thoughts.  I added a filter of grain.  The whole photo was supposed to look like a polaroid.  Hope you get a laugh out of it as I did making it.

That is pretty cool Valerie! :) Great photo edit! You make it sound so easy to do these edits. I just get frustrated with trying to learn I guess. Have a great weekend. Pam

That's really cute, Valerie. I can think of lots of fun to be had with that tool. You look like a little kid on the edge of the fountain.

Hi Valerie, yes I did get a laugh! Very clever and cute photo of you.

Hope you are very well. We're having hot weather, too, but no one here complains about that. Lovely September summer days.
