Inspired by... nature


It's been awhile since I've had the opportunity to participate in one of Bonnie's challenges.  This week the challenge is to present an abstract photo art with a design from nature.

Designs in nature! Definitely right up my alley! I'm always looking for patterns in nature.


Hawaii delivers...

In spades!



The fern head pictured above was about twelve inches in diameter and those are banyan tree roots climbing down on the left. The "recipe" for all the images is at the end of the post. This one is finished with the color burn blend mode. Each image contains one layer of Kim's confidence texture and final layer of Bonnie's sweet secret texture.



I started with the image of the cardinal, then added the textures and other images and played around some with other blend modes.  The one above is the color blend mode.



In this vivid blend mode, you can see more of the original colors coming through.



...here are the originals...

So... which blend mode is your favorite?


Have a wonder-filled day,
