photo art friday and flower art friday 12.10.12

Despite the cooler weather, the wildflower's in the 'meadow'
having still been blooming beautifully!!

Just like when I was a kid, 
I was inspired by the pretty colours and the blowy grasses
to pick a bouquet for my Mom
(since I was going for a visit this week)

I took a few shots before delivering them...
for Bonnie's Photo Art Friday and LeAnne's Flower Art Friday
and applied a variety of textures

Textures 'Heartache', 'Rose Dust' & 'Never Seen Before' by Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art

Texture 'Vintage Vellum' by Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art

Textures 'Starburst' by Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art and
'Jennifer' by Nancy Claeys at A Rural Journal

I found a lovely orange flower with a stem of seeds still attached 
that I saved to adorn my own Thanksgiving table! 

Both photos have been processed with the texture 'Solstice' by Ruth West 

More of these orange beauties here and here

I love how the different textures can make similar photos look so very different!!
Make sure to pop over to both of these blogs to see the amazing entries by other great photographers!
Wishing everyone a wonderful fall weekend filled with photo opps!
