The PAF challenge for this week was to create a photoart composite with two images, as well as utilising two of Bonnie’s textures – the mandatory one being ‘dropped petals’.
I made the most of the geometric layout of the ‘dropped petals’ texture by layering in and aligning, two portrait format images. Over these layers I added the central camellia, masking out some of its extraneous detail. The ‘Bamboo dreams’ texture was then the perfect accompaniment to this Oriental composite, creating a golden, scripted effect, which made a good contrast with the dusty pink hues.
The editing was finalised with a transparent border and the addition of mandarin scripts for the Chinese New Year, to hang in the photoart friday gallery
