Three Things to Do Today - Mini Challenge Fun

Here are three images. The challenge is to combine something from all three into one artistic grapic. Use any tools, filters, actions you want to experiment with but, you must use at least one element from all each file.

Frank, very nice tiling effect. I could almost see this in a real building.

Frank, cool! I especially like the subtile color combinations and the rotation.

Kiska, well, yeah, sorta... Your elements are similar, but so distored they don't look anything like the originals. For example, the ferns look more like grass. LOL

Here's what I came up with

I used different blending modes on the ferns and oil painting till I found something I liked then merged these two layers

I desaturated the geometric and placed it below the merged layer then set the Blending options to bring through some of the black from the design.

Welcome aboard, ScubaMargie.

I like your version. Lots of color and a very interesting pattern. I like the way the ferns are so elusive in the center section. And the light and shadow on that center portion gives the illusion of some kind of organizm. An alien starfish of some kind. Neat!

Thanks Swampy. I didn't see it as an aloen starfish, now that I look at it though I can see it. I'm glad you like it. I had fun doing it...and now will do more challenges.

Made a simple scene for my version using the three samples for texture.
