In the Garden...

Yesterday morning I had a wander around the garden with Daves camera to see what had grown and bloomed that would be of use in my artwork. I took a number of photos which I'll be uploading onto my other blog in the next few days, but on seeing this weeks theme over at TMTA this morning (In the Garden) I had to have a quick go at combining one of my photos with a few collage images from itkupilli.blogspot.com.

Here below is a section of a photograph I took yesterday (taken inside our poly tunnel- a few weeds inside with the shadow of grasses and twigs outside)



I had a bit of a play about with the image and produced a background that I thought could be workable.

Here are a couple of ATC's using the background created from the above photo.

Your photos are beautiful and the way you have used them as inspiration is so clever. The backgrounds are gorgeous and give such depth. This is stamping art or should that be Art Stamping?

lottie said...

Oh, I haven't been around the weekend so have just logged on and seen this.

A bit of a 'play around' - love that understatement - I don't know who you did it, but it was brilliant. Love the original photo too.
