Vintage Ferns

I had a vision of capturing a whited out look of something like I had been seeing on the blogs.  This picture of a maidenhair fern was my first attempt.  

This is what it looked like before I edited it.  
For Texture Tuesday, Kim asked us to use the number three for a challenge.   So, my three is that I have created two more fern pictures.  I was hoping to make a grouping for the wall.  I printed them out to 8x10's and they look really neat with the texture.   The texture used was pourvous by Kim Klassen.
I think these would be just right printed out on canvas for a grouping on the wall, but I can't afford to do that, so I will try an alternative and post about that soon.
Thanks for viewing my post.  
I will link to Texture Tuesday at Kim Klassen Cafe.

Your images are beautiful and make a stunning grouping. You might be able to print them on a canvas paper (from the art department of HL or Michaels).

Lovely texture work. I think groupings of like images always look great. I have had good luck with canvas on demand in the past. Sometimes you can get a good deal at winkflash too!

Sherry, these photo's look great and would certainly look perfect as a wall collage. Crisp and clean!
