Liquid Abstract

Pretty simple to create this one...I just took a photo of some dried flowers, duplicated it 5 times and applied the Liquify filter in different ways to each layer. I then changed the blending modes and opacity of each layer until I got an image I liked...along with a few Hue/Sat and Curves adjustments. The middle rectangle with the soft glow around it was created at the end as a way to create some contrast with the "liquid" and organic shapes. Without it, the image has some interesting shapes but your eye goes all over the place.

Great detail, looks like a very complicated piece of hand done art. My eye still floats all over it, but when I turn my head to make it a vertical (either direction - if you do it fast it is even more fun) I see tentacles in the square that look loke tree roots framed by the soft art around it and all of a sudden it comes together for me.

What a fun abstract use of the liquify filter and blending modes. I love all the movement and texture you have created with them. It’s almost hypnotic as your eye wanders around the image following the various swirls and twirls. I’m not a fan of the glowing rectangle, but I can see your point for using it, as it does immediately focus your attention on the center. Very creative results!
