The prompt from Pixel Dust Photo Art’s blog for this week’s Photo Art Friday is Architecture. This is a fun one for me, since in addition to taking photos of flowers in my gardens and anywhere else, I love to take photos of various old or old looking buildings such as barns, sheds, and faded and falling houses… The first photo I played with today is this one of a shed with a tree near it. It is pretty simple, but grabbed my eye. I didn’t do too much with Photoshop Elements on this one, just lightened it, added some contrast, then added the Paint Daubs effect with Sparkle brush to get the look shown.
I have played with achitecture in the past with my quilts… Here is one of my favorites- “My Dream House”
This quilt was inspired by the photo below of an old house on the road we live on.
Back when I took this photo I could see some of the house, now it is pretty much hidden by trees, shrubs and weeds. I used the photo as a pattern for the little house in my quilt. I have done another piece using the photo printed onto fabric and surrounded it with flowers in fabric and embroidery.
I have thought it would be neat to do a few more pieces similar with old, decrepit buildings surrounded by beautiful flowers… maybe that will be something to try soon.
