Turning flowers into art


Last week I posted two collages of the flowers I've found at the Desert Botanical Garden and I told you that I had done some editing with some of the photos to see what I might be able to create.  I thought I'd show you some of the results.  I call the photo above "Zinnia Kaleidoscope".


I'm naming this one "Bachelor's Button Sketch".


And, this one I'm going to call "Atomic Amaryllis".

Being creative with the photos is one of my favorite things to do!

I've always liked kaleidoscopes so love the top one, Sharon! Far out! ;-))

Thérèse said...

Yes a fantastic kaleidoscope! Superb!

Fotolosopher said...

Oh, yes, you are truly an artiste! I used to develop all my own film, and print my own pictures and I'd spend days in the darkroom on one roll of film. Thank the gods for digital.

I love 'em all but the kaleidoscope is very special.

The first one reminds me of a stained glass window. Very pretty. Hope you're having fun wherever your road trip takes you.

Halcyon said...

Oh wow! I don't always like those effects, but they really work here. That first one is trippy!

PS: Now I know where you went on your road trip! :)

I am going to have to learn photocopy so I can play along like this.
