Flower Art Friday #10 - June 29, 2012

gerbera4


Welcome to Flower Art Friday #10! I can hardly believe we have been at this for ten weeks now. Thanks so much to everyone who shared birthday roses and wishes with me last week. You made my day extra special!

Today's image meets the challenge put forth by Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art to create something a little "painterly." As usual, I lost track of my steps but I can say I did use Topaz Labs and RadLabs both on this image. For texture, I used the following:

Pixel Dust Photo Art "Age It"
Kim Klassen's "Peony"
Florabella Collection "Vintage Damask" paper.


Odds were that our top images from last week would feature roses, and that's exactly what happened.

Hans was #1 again with this lovely dew-kissed creation...



Mona's unique take on the theme was truly special and comes in second place. I just adore the colors and tones...



MG Atwood makes it to the top once again with her singular beauty. Lovely bokeh on this one...



Tied for third with MG was Ruth at RH West Photography's sweet creation with lovely colors and awesome texture work...






Congratulations winners! Grab your badge!

Before we get this party started, here's just a quick reminder of the rules before we begin.


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 will also be sending you a little email reminder to come back and vote and when the winners are posted.

I can't wait to see what you have in store for me this week!
