Flower Art Friday #11 - July 6, 2012



tiny yellow flower


Welcome to Flower Art Friday #11! The gallery opens early Thursday morning and entries are accepted until midnight each Saturday.


Today's image is a macro of a teeny tiny little unidentified yellow blossom that came as a part of a pot refill I bought at Lowes. To give you an idea of its scale, here it is in context next to a petunia.




I used my trusty Kenko Extension Tubes to get in close.

Just a little RadLab work and I was pleased with the result without the need for texture. Since Kim's Texture Tuesday doesn't require texture this week, I'll jump in her linky with this one as well.

Now for our winners from last week. For the first time in Flower Art Friday history, we actually have THREE in the top three, verus a tie (or ties) for third.

With the most votes, these lovely vintage peonies were submitted by Angela (Kindred Threads). LOVE!!



Mona's back in the top three again with this ethereal and painterly image:



And finally we have this Honey Lily made magnificent in black and white by Andrea Dawn.




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.

Ok, let's link up!
