it's time for the Photo Art Friday challenge over at Pixel Dust Photo Art where the optional theme/challenge this week was to create an image using one of her textures and a photo of my own. i decided to go abstract this week with my entry.
|Bonnie freely offered up |
this texture for those who
might wish to use it.
she calls it "Gift".
|i added this texture |
that i created from
two of my own images
and created the above abstract piece. i did some doubling up and flipping as well as some filter adjustments in order to get the final result.
i'm not sure i'm any good at 'abstract' but i had fun giving it a go.
the 'Abundance' quilt-along was sponsored by Lori at Humble Quilts and was great fun.
the light is a little harsh in this photo and the colors and contrasts aren't perfect but this is pretty close.
i enjoyed this one and really appreciated that it was a simple one this time. Thank You Lori~!
Lori just happens to have some really cute little quilts (within a recent post) that she has made recently for the benefit of the AAQI. it's my understanding that they are on their way to this amazing organization and will be posted for sale in the near future. you may or may not be inclined to purchase any one of them but if you want to see how cute they are pop over there and take a look . . . it's like a tiny quilt show~!
i recently decided to follow along with Cheri on her three part primitive SAL on quiltsbycheri. i happened to have some nine patches laying around and they were very close to the size suggested so i played along. as it turned out i really only had time for the first of the three little quilts but i now have it sewn up and ready for some hand quilting. i'll show you more of that one on a later post.
i recently visited Tammy at Flat Creek Farm and was delighted by some bird watching that she has shared. she discovered a way to slow down the speed of the video and she has added some beautiful music to them creating a couple of totally magical shorts that really should not be missed~! if you follow only one link from this post, make it one of these because it will totally change your day.
