Funky Junk Interiors’ Saturday Night Special Theme:
Twigs and Branches
So… on Monday I posted about creating art out of photos
using free photo enhancement software.
I use Windows Live Photo Gallery & Picasa.
This was one example of an artistic enhancement made on a photo I created using an old Christmas tree and lantern.
Love the way these turned out… may print and frame these!
And here is another before and after with just the pine tree…
Well… for this weekend’s theme I wanted to share with you
a few more artistically altered photos that I created using
twigs and branches.
I started out with a textured canvas painted off white for a backdrop.
Then, I simply held the branches up to the backdrop and took a picture.
Downloaded it to my computer…
And played around with the exposure & color settings
in Windows Live Photo Gallery.
Here is the photo straightened, cropped, and color manipulated to create a subtle piece of art.
Here are a few more:
And a few more…
Instant Art I tell ya!
Add words to your art! You can do this in Picasa.
This is what it would look like framed (done in another free software called Photobucket)
Pretty cool… huh?
And last but not LEAST…
For those who commented on my White Porch post…
and who told me to EMBRACE the muddy tracks…
((thank you ALL for the ideas and encouragement!))
these artistic photos were inspired by
Who knew my muddy floor would turn out to be such a cool background?
For a few more ideas using twigs and branches…
The possibilities are endless!
