Here is another flower-gram. This one uses an Iris photo. The ordinal colour version of the Iris is included. The color version was inserted as a layer into textured background. It layer was duplicated and modified and then blended in with the layers already incorporated into the textured text. As with other flower-grams it emulates a variety of alternative photographic processes.
Here are two flower-grams created using a textured text abstract design that emulated antique maps and antique embossed papers. I have also included the B&W Photos of the flower. Gives a little bit of before & after in the process. It also lets people who prefer the straight up photo-image a chance to see it.
The flower-grams originated as an attempt to suggest/emulate a photogram/solargram. For my earliest attempt see Flower-gram 1 . Since that first post, I have combined the flower-gram effect with other textures and layering processes to create more complex images based on the original idea.
In the spirit of the season, I am sharing one of my textures with my visitors. It is called Antique Paper Mystery Map 15. It is set at a resolution of 78 and a print size of approx. 16 x 11. If you use it, make sure to post and let us get to see the result.
That time of year, when we reconstruct cold reality and create a warm golden glow of nostalgic memory to soften the harder edges of winter.
Textures and layers were used to modify some recent images of snow, that was itself modified by freezing rain & melt-freeze. A messy reality was turned into a piece of art suited to the season.
Enjoy the natural beauty & the constructed visions that you will find here, but just remember to take your time traveling. When out and about, try to be prepared for weather & an environment that is not at all sentimental or nostalgic.
Once again we explore Atlantean artifacts this What-if-Wednesday. Atlantean glass was incorporated in the Atlantean Memory Walls. Time, Space and Memory are embedded in the crystal structure. Some claim that a dimensional portal was created. Can we go to Atlantis or is an escape route waiting to open ? Perhaps when the stars are right the ancient Atlanteans return or have their psychic forms entered our world ?
