The Beauty All Around Me

September 14, 2012

Good morning.  It's a bit chilly this morning, but later it will get up to the low 80's.  Boy, that will feel really good!   I'm at work so this will have to be a short post.  Mrs will be waking soon, and then I will have to get busy here. 

Today I want to post my collage for Photo Art Friday.  I had to  come up with a seven word sentence that says something about me, and then match it to some sort of photo art.  This took a bit of thinking but in the end, it all came down to the beauty all around me.  I have always been in awe of nature's wonders, and I love music.  So here is my creation.


I started with a photo of flowers, then added in parts of three other photos.  The butterfly, the bird and Pogo.   I first applied the dusty rose bokeh texture from PDPA, then the "hue" blending mode from Photoshop.  When I was finished, I brushed in some music to complete the picture.

Now I have to get back to work.  Mrs is stirring and will be calling me soon.  Till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.

Hugs, Edna B.

Awesome job, I like you quote. The music makes the whole picture seem as though it is singing.

what a lovely, lovely collage. I would still be racking my brain for inspiration! This is a terrific job! Hope you and Pogo have a terrific weekend and enjoy the beauty of being outdoors! It is a wee bit cooler here too, so hope I will be able to be outside some! Hugs!! Mat

Very nice. Such pretty colors and your images are great. I like your 7 word phrase very much and the edition of the music notes.

You are blessed not just because you have so much beauty around you, but because you have the gift of appreciating it, capturing it and sharing it with others. I too love music and there is some beautiful music mixed with nature sounds that can sooth away pain or stress. Your collage is beautiful ... I love what you do.
