Spring Flowers Collages (Photo Edit Tips)

Kaleidoscope pattern photo collage - tips editing artistic photos
Photo Pimp Up Tip - Kaleidoscopes Collages

Today I want to share you one of ideas that I like to use to edit and play around with my photos. It's not new technique nor I invented it so you probably have already known, but even if you have, I hope you would still interested in my version. :)

I took some photos of early spring flora in one sunny day. What I did then was turning them into kaleidoscope like pattern collages. I didn't arrange them in circular motion or complicated way, just pretty basic. However, I am always surprised with the result every time I do this with my photos. It's as fun as photo filter and as exciting as waiting result of film cam. I've made pattern from Vienna street ornament light, you can see it in my old post here if you want.

Depends on the photo editors (I used old Photoshop), basically I just copy, paste and flip the photos either horizontal or vertical. Of course they can be rotated or however way you like, no certain formula!

Later on I mixed my outfit and selfie pics into those kaleidoscope patterns and play around with the layers modes/types, transparation and composition, cloning some parts, erasing, moving, ...or whatever possible but as I've said, I kept them pretty basic.

This way I can pimp my outfit photos for my style blog, for example,  which I often took inside the house in front of the same wall over and over again, in case I am bored with those ones. :)

Yes, they are photos from early Spring (=last month). I have taken a lot of  photos along the last month which I haven't share on my blog. By the time it's Summer maybe I still share you my Magnolia bloom photos from this April hehehe. Lately it has been raining almost everyday and too bad I have been being sick since before the Magnolia bloom time! Unbelievable. It's nasty kind of cold that started with sore throat, canker sore, body ache, then running nose and now I cough often and sneezing marathon every morning.

Oh, what did I say. Sorry for telling you about this. I shouldn't turn off the happy mood of this flower photos. I better shut up now and wish you a super inspiring day! Thank you to you who have visited my blogs,  commented and been following my blog.

The river has been renovated to have more natural meanders.  It's more beautiful then before. There are some spots or point of views where there are like surreal. I just wish the bridge would be more antique style or artistic. It's a nice meandering day. You can see some more photos of the series on my personal style blog Naty Ponders here. More of me there hehehe. 

Photos of me by Mike except the last selfie one. Taken in February, had been already like April weather of last year. 

Happy Spring and have a super inspiring day everyone!

The First Spring Bulbs

Late Winter-Spring Wild flowers Austria
First spring bulbs have popped out in our back yard, just below our window. They about a month earlier than official start of the spring date. Hallo Spring!

As a little girl I believed Thumbelina was somewhere there, so as tiny fairies.

Pretty cocktail of crocus and friends. Purple, yellow, white.
Late winter. The first spring bulbs have popped out in our back yard, just below our window. They show up about a month earlier than official start of the spring date. Hallo Spring!
I step just amongst them with my fave ugly shoes, careful not to step on them. Trusty shoes for all season especially transition.
The purple crocus are so cute. Can't wait a little bit longer to see them spreading covering the lawn.
However, all of them, crocus and friends are pretty cocktail of wild flowers. Purple, yellow, white. I would like to see some pink or red too. Or maybe orange.

Wish you a super inspiring day!
Nataya
