Flower Art Friday #21 - September 14, 2012

orange butterfly

Thanks so much to everyone who participated in Flower Art Friday last week. We had some phenomenal submissions. We have two repeat winners this week and in honor of Bonnie's first win in our challenge, I used her "Nitty Gritty" texture on my image for today. It worked really well without a lot of adjusting needed in simple overlay blend mode.

So be sure to stop by and say hello and congratulations to last week's reader picks!

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!
