I was a bit of a slacker last week and didn't participate in TT. My daughter came home from Africa last Monday and we spent hours looking at all the photos & videos she took. The photos are AMAZING!
Very close shots of some of the animals.
My first 2 photos for TT are actually photos my daughter took in Africa. She took them because she knows how much I love pink flamingos! So I can't take credit for the photos just the alteration of them.
TT theme is 'PINK'. Perfect for my pretty pink birds don't ya think?
This one is layered with Kim Klassen's
'canvasback' texture, with hue & saturation altered.
This next photo is also layered with Kim's 'canvasback' texture. More pink birds!!
I used a layer mask to mask the 2 brightest birds in the center.
Maybe for next week's TT my daughter will allow me to use more of her fabulous photos. She got some awesome shots of leopards, lions, zebras, giraffes, elephants, ostriches, etc. And phenomenal sunsets!!!
Next shots were taken by me in my kitchen. Little pink shrub roses with my collection of cobalt blue vases again.
"Fairy". They bloom profusely but unfortunately do not have any scent at all. But oh so pretty!
This photo was layered with Kim's 'canvasback' & 'aurora' textures.
Here's a close-up of the roses. I used the same layers as the above photo with masks.
And last but not least; here's a shot of a beautiful water lily I took yesterday at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. All the water lilies were in bloom--just gorgeous. I really love the dark mottled colors in the leaves.
Since the water background looked almost black I decided to go with a much darker coloring. Also, I thought it really made the leaves more interesting. I used Kim's 'canvasback magic' texture for this one.
Three layers of it, all at different blending modes and opacities. And I used a mask to keep my lilies nice & pink!
So there you have it-my pink themed, textured photos. I have been hoping to get some artwork photographed for my blog and also I have been rusting some fabrics that I hope to show later in the week. Some surprising results to show!
Until then.....live your life creatively~
