Wildflowers

Greetings fellow bloggers. It has been awhile since I have posted here. I have been extremely busy at work and not much time to spend on my photography....although I did manage to stop by an entire field of Queen Anne's lace recently and snap some images of these lovely flowers. Queen Anne's Lace is one of my favorite wildflowers; it has so many intriguing stages, from a delicate little pink flower, to a lacy white umbrella, to an intricately folded seed head. The following are some images I captured while basking in their presence...

Amongst the Lace

Sharing this over at Beyond Layers, Flower Art Friday, and Photo Art Friday


I processed these images using a combination of Kim Klassen Textures, Flypaper Textures, French Kiss Brushes, as well as some techniques learned in my Beyond Layers Class.

I hope to have some time this weekend to visit your lovely blogs and see what I have been missing! :-)

You've given Queen Anne's Lace the treatment it deserves: soft, delicate and dreamy. Thank you for sharing your artwork with Photo Art Friday, Linda.

I am a big fan of "weeds" too! These are growing wild and free behind my neighborhood...I can spend hours enjoying their beauty.

Your word art turned out perfectly. It's soft, beautiful and captures the spirit of Lady's Lace.
