Combining or fusing images and elements creatively with beautiful results

We have some exceptionally talented artists in this Group with such a variety of styles – all beautiful blends! Here are twelve of the best from this week’s additions. Congratulations everyone – your work is a joy to look at.

All these images are eligible for entry into the Top Blend : April 2013 challenge which I’ll set up in a couple of days, so don’t forget!!! For those of you who have a Feature banner for March 2013, you can enter that Top Blend challenge here. There are only three entries so far! Meanwhile, you might want to feast your eyes on the first of the Group’s Special Collections here – treasures found during my Spring clean.

Take a few moments to pass on your comments to the artists – either here or in their galleries – we all like comments!. Click on the thumbnail to see the larger picture.


There are weekly features every Australian Friday which is Thursday for most of you.

Just a reminder about the main rules of the Group. Beautiful Blends is about combining elements or images – two at least so adding textures to a single image is not enough unless it substantially changes the original. And, please, nothing dark and gloomy or sinister, and no abstracts. If you haven’t done so for a while, check the group guidelines.
