Frosted fruit and flowers

Bonnie invited us to try a photoart technique that we do not usually use. I’ve been wanting to create a collage of abstract textured images that all use the same texture.

The photo in the middle is the texture applied to all of the others – it is the frost on the car windscreen taken last year.  I applied it to various photos of fruit and flowers from my collection and used mostly colour burn and overlay blending modes, plus one on difference.

I like the balance of repetition and difference

This is a wonderful Art work. Great capture ! I like the colors and the forms. Have a nice weekend, Helena.

Great idea and a wonderful result! The repeating lines of the texture pull the whole piece together beautifully. Thank you for sharing with Photo Art Friday.

These are all lovely, and what an amazing texture you have used.

Very creative! I love that you were able to make your own texture from a photo and then apply it to make such abstract images. Great idea!

Well.. I would like that, wouldn't I?
Wish I'd thought of arranging mine like that.

Very intriguing.
It's great; however did you think of making 8 of these in a frame?
Great job!

what a clever idea. I particularly like the effect on the sweet peas and the poppy head

Ida said...

Oh I like this very much. Love that you used the "frost" as a texture. I have a frost picture that I'll have to try that out with.

Very cool idea indeed! I love the result, it's interesting and inspiring. I need to try this with some of my frost pictures. You just gave me something to play with!

Very creative and such a unique idea to pull into the 3x3 format. It is amazing how each is different yet has a similar feel. Thank you, kareninkenai

This is very inspiring for me too Helena. I have been playing with digital art lately but haven't the courage to post yet. I really will try harder. Thanks.
So glad I caught up with you at last. x
