Flower Art Friday

yellow iris


Welcome to the very first Flower Art Friday! I sure hope some of you will join in with your lovely creations. Here's just a reminder of the very simple rules:

Flower Art Friday is a weekly gallery featuring your floral themed creations. We will have themes from time to time, but these will only be suggestions and you may feel free to deviate if you like. Obviously the theme revolves around flowers,and works submitted can be photos, digitally manipulated photos, textured photos, or mixed media collages.

Check out my resources page for information on some great sites that provide free textures, clip art, and tutorials.

The rules are pretty simple. Your link should go directly to your blog post or flickr post, and I ask that you post a link back to my blog in return. Post only your original work, and give credit appropriately to the source of images, clip art, or textures you may use in your piece. It would be awesome if you would grab my badge and include it in your post.

You also get to vote for your favorites. I will feature the top three picks on my blog next week, so if you participate please note that you are also giving me permission to repost your photo here.

I'm also sharing the linky love over at Pixel Dust PhotoArt, where Bonnie has reconsidered her summer break and is moving forward business as usual with PhotoArt Friday. I decided since I'd already invested in the linky tool and announced it, I would continue with Flower Art Friday AND continue participating in her linkup. For this image, I used her "Painterly" texture along with a whole lot of Topaz Labs processing.

My hope is that eventually I can share more about my "recipes" and techniques, but for now its going to be just about creating, experimenting and sharing.

So, without further ado, let's get this party started!
