PhotoArt Friday with brown rice paper

paf-11-jan-2

Bonnie provided a lovely texture for us to use in our photoart this week.  I looked through my photos from first week of this year and chose 2 to apply the texture.

On this first one I went with the canvas like quality of the texture and applied the PSE artistic filter ‘paint daubs’ first and then the texture using Linear Light. 

My second photo is from an event I went to on 1st January called Fortuna.  There were a series of free entertainments in different venues.  At the start you rolled dice and were given a venue card to correspond with the number you rolled.  A fun way to spread the crowd around.  One of the events was an inflatable ‘Roman temple’ for the goddess Fortuna.

I used another of Bonnie’s textures – Virtually Vintage – first on colour burn and then the Brown Rice Paper texture on Vivid Light.  I love how the image looks older and warmer.

Looking forward to seeing what others do with the texture this week.

Beautiful work Helena, I love the beach with the texture but the Fortuna image is fabulous.

I like the first one best. The texture makes it look like an oil painting and adds so much interest to the subject.

They're both lovely, but the first one is very striking! The texture works perfectly with the scenery. Thank you for sharing!

These are both wonderfully altered by the textures.

Wow! These are both fantastic pieces of photo art! You have made the second look like a painting of ancient times. Don't you love what Brown Rice Texture does to a sky shot?!

they are each so wondrous in their own ways. I was imagining something so different with the second one and really love the surprise of the story!!

These are both very nice pieces. My favorite is the 1st piece simply because I love the ocean and I love the painterly feel that this piece has.
