This week, for Sunday Stills, let’s blow up WordPress and the rest of the Internet with gorgeous flowers! We all need some hope and beauty in our lives. Linking to Sunday Stills this week will be like we are sending each other wonderful bouquets.

Last spring’s hydrangea.
Did you know that merely looking at photos of nature will calm your stress levels?
Be as creative as possible: show us a field of flowers, or an extreme close-up of your favorite flower. Try a new angle to create a fantasy look to your flower.
These tree blossoms looked like snow after a spring storm!
Or use your photo-editing skills to show us a fantasy flower.
This one was created from the Painnt Filter I describe below.
Drops on Top
I am linking some of my square florals of raindrops on top with Becky B’s new April Squares Challenge, Top.
Digital Floral Art
I love the Painnt-Pro Art Filters (for android and apple) for editing images into something different.
I also enjoy the digital coloring app Oil Painting by Color Planet. I LOVE photography, but I also like to color! I find this to be very relaxing.
I use my photo editing clone feature to make the logo disappear.
You can save your creations from both apps to your devices for a variety of uses: wallpaper for devices, photo-editing, etc. Both apps can be found in the Apple store and Google Play for Android users. They are free if you don’t mind the ads.
For Sunday Stills challenge this week, it’s OK to use flowers from your media files, if you can’t get out and find new images. All of these flowers and their fantasy counterparts were grown in my backyard!
And most of these images were taken by my various Samsung Galaxy series mobile phones!

The sky is the limit this week and I can’t wait to see what you have to share.
