I wanted to use one of the photos from our recent vacation in Tortola for today’s art creation. This is the photo I selected.




The photo (taken by Tom) didn’t need any embellishment to be beautiful. That made the process of turning it into something “arty” very difficult. I tinkered with the photo in several different editing programs mostly using the HDR effect. The final step was adding the blurred border using LunaPic.





I do not like the art version as well as the original photograph, but I do think it is interesting. So, I’m entering it in Athena and Marie’s Caturday Art Blog Hop. To see all the submissions and/or enter one of your own, click on their badge.

Another week has sped by making tomorrow the time for our Sunday Selfies Blog Hop. We will have a guest host tomorrow, and you’ll have to come by to find out who it is. Hope to see you here and that you will decide to submit your own selfie. #SundaySelfies

What a gorgeous photo! The Mom has been itching for a beachy vacation, and now she is itching even more, whatever that means. She says your mom is going to have to tell her all about it at BlogPaws! The arty version is neat too! You always do such interesting things with the Caturday Art!

It looks beautiful. My mum and dad have been to Tortola whilst on a cruise. Every time they go there, they go to Cane Garden Bay.

The original photo is absolutely breathtaking but this version – with all the creative embellishment is super interesting and artsy!

Love that picture, and the t looks like a type of mosaic we think.
