Flower Art Friday #12 - July 13, 2012

wildflower


Welcome to Flower Art Friday #12! The gallery opens early Thursday morning and entries are accepted until midnight each Saturday.

Inspired by the number of images of Queen Anne's Lace we've had in our gallery lately, I decided to work with an image captured on my morning walk. The texture on the left is Kim Klassen's "flourish" and the script is from Shadowhouse Creations. I also worked pretty extensively with the image in both Topaz Labs and Radlabs.

Now for our winners from last week.

Hans is back with this beautiful contribution. Check out the refracted image in the droplet!



Barb at Keeping up with the Times bestowed on us this lovely soft peony image.



Flower Art Friday frequent flyer, Ruth, R.H. West Photography is in the top three once again with this magnificent creation.



Finally,

Deanna from Snippets from Springdale shared with us this buttery beauty.



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!
