Monday Artistic Challenge

I decided to apply to artsy filters to my background instead of the picture. I started with Brandy Murray's SS Paper Template, Art Diary, and added papers to it. Then I made a merged layer and played around with the filters. Finally duplicated that layer and used the PSE Impressionist Art Brush. What fun!! I did find a Monet painting on line that uses fall colors call "On the Banks of the Seine." Other supplies in EXIF.

Love what you did with the background. Very clever. Love those wonderful Autumn colors and falling leaves and the cluster is so pretty.

You don't have to sell it to me Karen! The colours are gorgeous and I am so intrigued that you chose to use this technique on your background, how innovative... it is a really striking page.

Wow, how creative and clever of you, Karen and I love what you did here! Your background and colors surely are beautifully Impressionist and the way you made your background is awesome! Your photo is so wonderfully full of light and color and I really like its angle and the way you framed it. Super journaling too, what a nice touch for your little guy in later years. Thanks for joining the challenge and adding a gorgeous piece of Impressionist digital Art to the Monday Challenge Gallery. Lovely work! :)

I like the artsy background you created behind the lovely photo of the home. The colors of the background and the fall elements go beautifully with the fall photo. Great journaling, too, making the page even more meaningful.

I think this effect worked great with your background! Probably better than using it with your photo, because then you'd lose all the details in the pretty house. Great leaf clusters and cute journaling, I'm guessing for a grandchild. :)

Love the fall leaf impressionistic feel to your beautiful background. The colors work so well with your pretty photo and embellishments. So pretty.
