I am totally amazed at what you can do with photos on your phone these days! I am loving some of the various artsy photo apps out there, a great way get insprired and be creative when you can't be in the studio :) All the original photos were taken with an iPhone and played with using Adobe Photoshop Express...love it and it's free to boot! :)
Below - a pic a friend took of the wood planks of a deck
Then I made it into my wallpaper for my phone, lol...
Almost looks like there's a bear staring at you now in the bottom right corner... weird!
Below: Finished washing dishes and this mischievous face was staring back at me! No kidding! Creepy!
So I had to play around with it - haha!
Below: This is part of the trunk of a 96 year old protected "Heritage Tree" in my neighbourhood - it's HUGE! It's branches span all the way across to the other side of the street... very cool tree...
Love how colourful it turned out...the texture is amazing too! I want to paint it and see what I come up with :)
Below: Driving back from out of town and saw a rainbow in the distance - had to take a pic ;)
After some cropping and touch ups - I LOVE it!!
A couple other fave's of mine are "ColorBlast!" and "Instagram" - worth checking out if you have an iPhone ;) They're no replacement for canvas and paint for me but they are a great way to stay creative and keep in touch with other artsy peeps! :)
