Photoart with words

project-life-april-2-photoa

I’m enjoying Bonnie’s prompts for a theme for Phot art Friday each week – I’m so busy at the moment that I find the disciplined focus of a theme means I actually create something rather than staring at several photos and the PSE screen.

So the theme was to include a favourite quote – I went with a saying that is integral to my approach to life, rather than a quote.  The other version of this idea that I use a lot is ‘how do you eat an elephant?’ – answer ‘one bite at a time’.

I decided to start with some photos (sun on water, grass and a bridge) and aim for something abstract that I like, rather than something that tied to the words.  I took an exploratory, evolutionary approach to this and didn’t record all the steps – all I can say is that I used filters and layer modes.

Very abstract and intriguing. I can't identify the original images which is perfect for an abstract. I like the muted colors too and....yep, it's a great statement! Thanks for the visit.

Well done. The abstract effect you were going for worked. I rather like it and the quote as well.
