Water Art


Valerie sitting on the bird bath

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
Cute! Photo Shop has creative possibilities.

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.

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…
