  • Spider flowers

    I took this shot at Silver Dollar City. I thought it was unusual and some of the "flower children" on the forum might have a go at it.

      Fooling around in PS7...Blurred the background then BuzzPro Simplify, Anisotropic filter, Paint Daubs, Buzz Pro Water color stack, Spatter, overlaid with a water color pattern set to difference.

          Same technique as above but using sprayed stroked on the middle layer.

            Jim,
            I like the variation on oil painting.

            Bubba,
            Nice neon effect.

              Lovely photo, Bubba. Thanks for sharing it. That's a great neon look...wow!

              Jim, nice painting effect from Photoshop...that texture really works!

              Tony, that second one looks like embossed silk at $45/yard!

              A nice variety of creative renditions here...this group just gets better and better!

              I tried some intense blend modes with a buzzpro simplified version and a high pass layer until I got an almost pure black background, then inverted and recolored it. I removed the few green leafy spots that remained in the background by painting over them with white, then made a pattern layer, turned it yellow-green, and blended it with multiply to make the crackly green background pattern. Finally used stroke to make a tiny border. Reminded me of a note card, thus the name.

                  Nice ethereal effect Pam. Almost expect to see fairies and elves popping into it.

                    Jim - looks like it should be hanging on a wall

                    Tony - nice 3-D look to yours - looks like you can reach out and feel them

                    Phyllis - your, as always, is gerat - makes me think of a tile painting

                    Pam - such a soft feel - indeed like a soft spring day

                      I tried doing a watercolor. Still a lot to learn.

                        Beautiful picture to start with, Bubba.

                        This rendition is based on a Cricket's tutorial described HERE (thanks, Cricket!). It's similar to one desribed by Jack Zucker in THIS THREAD.

                        First I duplicated the BG and applied Cricket's technique... pretty much a random / experimental application.

                        Then I duplicated the original BG and after dragging it to the top of the layer stack, applied the Dry Brush filter and set the blend mode to Screen.

                        Finally, I applied the frame action that can be found HERE and stroked the outside of the frame.

                          Same image as above + I was experimenting with a frame action written by Doug Barber, that applies some additional texture to the image.

                            Pam, wonderful soft look...very appropriate to the subject...love it!

                            Bubba, looks like watercolors, just maybe a tad too even and neat...might try a second layer with layer mask to wash over it a bit to soften it up and let the colors bleed into the paper a bit. Was it Schwartzie that had that tutorial?

                            Danny, I'm partial to the first one since I like the way it works with the flowers. Love how you do those frames too...with the picture continuing but blurred or different in some way...must try that. The second framing/texture look is clever and artistic, but I'd prefer to see it with a rougher subject. Flowers are rather delicate for such a harsh texture treatment, I think.

                            I hope you guys take these comments for what they are...not negative remarks but suggestions. I think it's important that feedback be useful, whether "good" or "bad" and I hope you'll all treat my pics that way as well.

                              Phyllis - I need all the help I can get. I don't take it as criticism but helpful hints (kind of like Heloise). I followed part of one of your tuts but impatience got the best of me! I tried one by Sarah on a picture of my white pekinese and made it "blotcher" or less even and it does look more like what it should. I will go back to yours and work thru it again. I tried your abstract on some flowers and it turned out moe like what it should. Thanks for all the time you spend doing your tuts and helping! Just cannot get away from teaching can you?
