Flower Art Friday #23 - September 28, 2012

Angel Wings

Welcome to the 23rd Flower Art Friday! The gallery opens early Thursday morning and stays open until midnight on Saturday.

This has been another crazy busy week for me and I didn't have much time to take photos, so I'm pulling from the archives for today's image. I don't believe I've shared this one here and it is one of my personal favorites.

Before we get to last week's winners, I'd like to let you know that next week's theme will be pink in support of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month In addition to sharing your pink themed floral works, I invite you to also share on your blog personal stories or messages of support to those you may know who have been affected by this disease.

As you may know, I recently went through my own breast cancer scare and although everything turned out just fine for me, I became more "aware" of how much support is out there for those dealing with this disease and I was grateful that there are those who work hard every day to work for a cure and encourage early detection.

Now, let's have a look at last week's top reader's picks.

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!
