Back from Hiatus with the WordPress Challenge: Intricate

I decided to start my blogging again with the weekly photo challenge at WordPress: Intricate.

Hello all my wonderful friends and readers. I haven’t written a post for 2 months, and I’ve missed it! Life happened, and between working full-time and grieving for my dad (Fly High Dad!), I just haven’t had the energy to do anything creative. Now that I am retired again, I can rummage around and see what kind of imaginative thoughts have percolated in my subconscious these past months.

The WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge for this past week is Intricate. The moment I read that, I thought of a project I did in April 2014 that involved mirroring a photo. Batiks with Butterflies and Blouses was a great success and is one of my most popular posts.

I don’t want to repeat any of the images I posted there, so I’ll share ones I created using the same original photo but I didn’t include in that post.


I began with this image I shot from my closet (yes I color coordinate my clothes, lol). Then using the app 1000 Filters on my Samsung Galaxy 10.1 notebook, I came up with a variety of effects.

Using only the red part of the blouses I created these:

Focusing on the lighter greens and browns I discovered these:

And focusing on the darkest tones in the closet shot I came up with these:

I think you’ll agree that there is enough intricacy in each of the manipulated mosaics to meet this WordPress challenge. 🙂

Big sigh. I think that about does it for my first post in a while. I just wanted to get my feet wet again and the creative juices flowing.

As always I am so pleased that you visited. Your comments warm my heart and put a smile in my day. Take care…

    I also thought about fabric designs! I’d have no idea how to go about it though. Research for another day. Thank you so much for commenting, it’s great to hear from you.
