Field of Lace - Flower Art Friday

Stop the car!

My husband just loves when I yell it out of nowhere!  But he also knows I was traveling with camera in hand, so that was all the warning he had when we rounded a corner in the Shawnee National Forest and came across a field of Queen Anne's lace. A field of weeds to most, but one of my favorite, intricate little wildflowers.

This is textured with 2 layers of  Pixel Art's 'ornate linen' on soft light, and 2 layers of 'painterly' on overlay.

I was pretty happy with the original as well:

Thanks for stopping in today!

Linking up with Photo Art Friday.


  1. Great editing job, the original was stunning the textures just added that little bit extra.

  2. Beautiful texturization, love how the edit brings out the colours! And they *are* beautiful flowers, too! Thanks - now I know what they're called as well... :)

  3. I agree both the original and the edited versions are quite lovely. I think the edited gives it just a bit more definition. Queen Anne's lace is so pretty.

  4. I love them both too, I have so many pictures of this lovely 'wild flower' I just love her. I am trying to find a safe place to stop and take photos of her in seed here just now.

  5. Cherie - the original is lovely - as is the abstract feel you've given it with the textures and edits!

  6. I love Queen Ann's Lace and would stop the car to get pictures as well ... so naturally, I love your original picture and think your edited version is simply beautiful. And, how lucky you are to visit the Shawnee National Forest ... wish I could be a fly on the visor :)
