Wrapping up the week with some photo art

To end my week of memory keeping with photos of my Kathmandu trip, I played with some of the photos and textures to create some photo art to share on Photo Art Friday.

I loved these flowers that were floating in a large tub in the hotel lobby.  I included them in my photo page about the hotel which I posted yesterday.

For the art I added Bonnie’s medieval magic texture on linear light blending mode at 50% and then her dappled dawn texture with the same blending mode and opacity.  Then I applied the rough pastels filter for that painted look.  I love the vibrant colours.

Red brick in common in Kathmandu – this is in the hotel gardens.  I added Bonnie’s fanciful texure on colour burn blending mode at 58% and them her medieval magic on colour dodge mode at 62%. 

Finally I really went to town on one of the landscapes that I included in my post on Monday and created an almost abstract piece. I can imagine it as a silk print

I applied Bonnie’s dappled dawn texture on luminosity blending mode at 100% and then duplicated the photo and used hard light blending mdoe at 14% to bring back a small amount of the building details.

Thanks to Bonnie for the fabulous wild textures and the prompt to share photo art each week.

Oh Helena - that red brick is such a warm and glorious color. And the texture you gave it is such a great addition - I need to play with that one. The flowers in the tub are so beautiful, what a lovely idea to have them in the hotel. Seems to be a lovely place.
