Monday mosaics


A new week has begun and it's time to join Mosaic Monday at Judith's Lavender Cottage!

Not having much time for organizing photos and having taken far too many of them recently, I participate today with a collage of the small pretty things I saw yesterday when having a walk and enjoying the beautiful Sunday afternoon. These sweet little pansies still brave the frost.

First there's the original... and then I did some "photo editing". I can't help it: there weren't these fun programs when I was young, I enjoy so much playing with them now. :)

The pencil sketch effect (somewhat adjusted), in the second mosaic, is always my favourite. Which one do you like most?

  1. Sara you take such beautiful photos and my favorites are the originals for sure!! Second place for me goes to the black and white pics. I don't know what it is about b&w pictures but they are always so soothing to the eye. Ciao tesoro buona giornata

  5. The ones that look like they've been drawn in pencil
    are quaint and nostalgic. I just love them !

    Lyijykynällä piirretyn näköisestä sarjasta tulee miellyttäviä
    muistoja mieleen 1800-luvun kasvitieteilijöistä ja koulun
    piirustustunneista kauan sitten. Siitä vaan aplikoimaan
    kuvioita tilkkitäkkiin isoäidin sänkyyn. (En tosin ole ihan
    varma siitä mitä aplikointi on, mutta close enough ! :D

  6. Kauniita orvokkeja, ihan kaikin tavoin. On ihan laventelipuutarhan veroisia. Sinultakin onnistuu tuo photosoppaaminen, taitaa vain olla vanha verbi kun ohjelmia on sadoittain. Nyt kahvin etsintään!

  7. The pencil sketch is my choice. The black n white pansy in the lower right corner is very nice too.

  8. Hello Sweet Sara,

    I wish you a happy Monday and a happy new week to you!

    Pencil sketch looks fairy; so it is my choice among them too ♥♥

  9. Hello Sara, although the colourful pretties you've shared is the best mosaic, I also favour the pencil sketch with how it softens everything.
    Have a good week, we had snow flurries over the weekend.

  10. A beautiful collage, Sara!
    So I am sometimes playing with images.
    Old-fashioned black and white, I like it also beautiful.

    Love, Gerry

  11. Näillä on kiva joskus leikitellä. Tuo lyijykynätehostus on hauska ominaisuus. Mustavalkoista kun käyttää, tulee miettineeksi vanhoja kuvia, miten upeat ja värikkäät puutarhat näyttivät kovin "mustavalkoisilta" kuvissa. Tuo lehti ja pisara on kaunis mustavalkoisena.

  16. Your originals are lovely, but I do like the pencil sketch for the artistic flair. Isn't it fun to use the new programs?

  19. Nuo orvokit ovat niin suloisia! Alkuperäiset ovat suosikkejani, mutta kaikki ovat hienoja. Oikein mukavaa viikkoa!

  20. I´m also playing sometimes with ´photo editing´, but I always come back to the originals. I think all your edited mosaics are pretty, but most beautiful is the original!

  21. Love the brave pansies - and the B&W is fabulous.

  22. You cannot go wrong with pansies, now can you? Wonderful mosaics this week.

  23. Sometimes the small, dainty things are the prettiest. Pansies are such sweet flowers.

  24. It's good to have a little fun with your photos from time to time, right? Your original photos are beautiful and full of colour. I really like the third mosaic too, again for the colour and vibrancy.
