Bonnie at Pixel Dust Photo Art has suggested the theme of In and Out for our Photo Friday Art submissions.  Bonnie has done some really cool faces for her submission, take a look when you can.

I keep going back to some favorite photos from last summer of our granddaughter running "In and Out" of the waves.
I decided to make each textured photo different, but have some common elements such as: ocean theme, text, font and textures that emphasized light found at the beach.


Thank you Bonnie for the textures.  For those who are interested the steps are listed below. Photos taken SOOC. Elements 11,  Wacom Tablet.

My Mermaid Friend and Me: Lomo Effect; Van Gogh texture; Orange filter, Handwriting
Chasing Waves: Tilt Shift, saturate; Blue Stone Texture; Wax Texture; Handwriting
Golden Glow: Old Fashion Photo, Vivid, Texture and Hue; A Monet Morning Texture, hard mix, saturation, warming filter; handwriting.


  1. Wonderful shots and edits. I especially like the light in the first one. Thanks for sharing, Sharon.

  2. Beautiful treatment with the green like a mermaid.

  3. You have certainly captured the joy of water play! Beautiful textures and post-processing treatments.

  4. Love the mermaid shot . . . my favourite colours together.


Thank you for taking your time to drop by and leave a note. Warmly, Sharon
