Photo Art Friday ~ Memories of You!

Photo Art Friday


The challenge this week is to use the texture Bonnie shared with us, Dropped Petals...



and one other texture of my choosing... Stained Glass..



with a photograph of my choosing...I chose two..each of my granddaughters




And make a collage of all these images...








I wasn't happy...so I went to my trust windmill photo and used that in the end..





So there you have it...my working process...which to me is the most interesting part of this whole challenge.
Thanks Bonnie for this project...I really enjoyed myself.  Please stop by and visit Pixel Dust Photo Art and see the other entries.  So fun!!

I feel the girls' portraits became too muddy whereas the windmill stayed light.  And with the windmill, you could still pick out the many different layers.

Have a creative and imaginative day!
Hugging you

oo i like how the first one of your granddaughters came out...its subtle...almost ghostly and comes off really well...

I like how you show your process, SueAnn, and I wanted to show more of mine [thanking you here for your comment on Mama Said There'd BE Days Like This] but so much of it was didn't works and work arounds and what if, oh NO!!, and mayBE... and yet I can see that if I were to go back and see I could have figured it out. Like you, I found things I added in made mud and then re-layering provided options I'd NOT considered.
I love the windmill. It is really so lovely and the whole effect of your piece is very moving.

I like how you have your granddaughters in the stained glass...nice

We are our worst critics, aren't we? I see the picture of your grand daughters as subtle, too. I like it!
And the windmill (I have several shots of some and love them) sits nicely on the glass...a good contrast of textures.
Each is a great study. Nicely done!

I love the first photo which appears here with your girls. So cute.

The windmill image is beautiful in a clear and cool way, but I find the images with the girls more intriguing... The more I look at them, the more the girls 'fade into the foreground'; to me, that's genius!

I love thema both but the one with your grand daughters I like the moost. Tnkx for the proces and sharing.

I agree that the windmill stands out more clearly, but I think the softness of the image of the girls is beautiful, too. Great work!

Experimenting can be fun (and frustrating). I liked the concept behind your first piece but it was a little to subtle to make out the girls in the piece. I think the Windmill piece worked together really well.

The stained glass and your sweet granddaughters are a perfect combination. These are so beautiful.

Terrific photos, SueAnn. When are you gonna reveal some of your jewelry? Or even just the supplies you bought for future projects? Bead on. Charlotte

I love seeing how others make art- thanks for sharing this process and also for stopping by with such a nice comment on my Magpie!
