This is my 200th post and I’m celebrating with lots of butterflies and blouses!
I didn’t realize that bloggers celebrated their milestones until I was beyond my 100th post, so I promised myself I’d do it with number 200. Today is also the letter B in the April A-Z Challenge. And it’s the week in the Snappy H’appy Challenge that we explore mirroring with our photos using apps.
I hope you’ll B H’appy with my 200 butterflies and blouses (don’t worry it’s really only 25). 😉
I began my exploration into mirroring with this photo of a butterfly on the grass.
I used an app I found for my Samsung Galaxy 10.1 Note. It’s called 1000 Filters (free). They have 16 different mirroring effects. I tried them all. Here are the butterflies that came out the best.
I felt limited with the composition of that photo so I found one of my Idaho butterfly shots.
I think it made for much more interesting images.
You notice that they finally become a pattern, like a piece of fabric. That’s because the mirroring effect can build on itself. Keep mirroring and it multiplies!
Then for a completely different subject I picked a photo of some blouses in my closet.
First I played with just the green and brown section, and the green and red together. But my favorites were the reds and oranges.
And then I had a really cool idea. Did you notice the “face’ in the second set of butterflies? I took that and applied the water-color effect from SketchGuru and voila. Batiks! (remember those?)
I hope you enjoyed my 200th post and all of my crazy explorations into mirroring. I think I’ll use the original butterfly face as my pick of the week for Snappy H’appy. As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog.
