In the meantime. I've been continuing to play with my photo-editing app, Pixlr Express, on my Android tablet. The first few photos are ones I took while in Ohio in December and played with the enhancements, effects, and overlay features of the app.
|Foggy, cold morning. Picture taken from the driveway looking east.|
|The same foggy, cold morning. Taken from the front yard looking east.|
|Looking out through the ice on the driver's window of the car at a tree beside the driveway.|
|Combined the first foggy morning photo with the iced car window photo, |
using the multiply blending effect
Combined the 2nd foggy morning photo with the iced window photo, using the difference
blending effect. More of the texture from the ice shows in this combination. This effect
reminds me of an interference pattern.
|I blended the iced window photo with one of the "Draw Happy" faces I posted |
last week (see post here). This makes me think of a mixed-media painting. I like
the texture and color the iced window photo adds to the black and white sketch.
|Combined the tree from the 2nd foggy morning photo with a palmetto photo I took last |
year in CA at a quilting retreat. I used the multiply blending effect.
|I combined the above blended photo of the palmetto and tree with another of the "Draw Happy" faces I posted last week (see post dated Jan 10, 2015). I used the "add" blending effect. I really like the results of this combination. I can see printing this on fabric to use for an art journal cover or to create an art quilt.|
It's exciting to create new "photos" by blending them. I really like the results and can see printing some of the blended photos onto paper or fabric for mixed-media art, fiber artwork or quilts. I'm just starting to explore the tip of the iceberg, as I haven't even begun to check out all of the "Overlay"and "Effect" features of the photo-editing software after blending two (or more) photos. The sky's the limit!!
