Mosaics for Monday



I am joining Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday. Collages, mosaics and playing with photos is just about my favorite thing these days. My friends in blogland have sparked my interest in these projects. I am experimenting with textures and backgrounds.

The background for this collage was a picture of freshly shelled peas.




I used Picnik and Photoscape to create this effect. I cannot tell anyone exactly how I did this but I just keep playing with the effects and tools and filters. I always save the original but I don’t save all my experiments!

I played around with Picnik for this next mosaic. It will be a part of my Pink Saturday posting next week.

I have a new program I am trying called Photofiltre. Pat of Back Porch Musings did a guest appearance for Brenda at Cozy Little House and mentioned it. Lots of options to try. I used several filters. Then I brought it back into Photoscape for layering and framing. The original photo is in the smaller frame and altered one serves as the background.

Be sure to stop by Mary’s and see what other mosaics are posted. Thanks for stopping by. If you have a minute I would love a comment! Thanks.

Carol, Interesting photo effects. Who would have thought those were real peas in the background to start with? Your creativity is shining! Lovely.

Hi Carol

I love the pea creation, great idea. I love the flower picture made with Photofiltre, is it easy to use?

The best is the pink mosaic, love the mirror frame.

We were in the most Southerly part of Cornwall, maybe you didn't go that far, a long drive!!

Hope you have had a good weekend, Jackie , Surrey, UK?
