Chinks of Light -- Photo Art Friday

When Bonnie of Pixel Dust Photo Art  provided two "artsy" textures last week, I began playing immediately.  And I forgot to record my "recipe."   For some reason, I couldn't get "Off Kilter" to work for me, but "Chinks of Light" resulted in some interesting art, which I chose for Photo Art Friday's gallery.

I've posted the photo collage that I worked with....each photo layer was reduced in opacity from 73% to 37%, depending upon the image.   I then applied "Chinks of Light" in three layers: darker light at 100%, hard light at 100% and a duplication of that layer to complete the "art."  (I still need some work on softening the edges of the individual layers.)

Very soft and pretty! This is a great texture to use with these soft colors - makes it even more ethereal. I used the same one with such dramatically different results; it's amazing how these textures can change an image! Great job!

What a lovely composition. Alone it makes a nice collage but with the texture and editing you end up with an intriguing piece of photo art. Thanks so much for linking up with PAF Evelyn!
