Texture Tuesday and the Color Orange.

This week’s theme for Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday is the color orange.  I thought of the many flowers in the yard that would be perfect for one of Kim’s textures, then remembered the photo I took on a recent trip.  After processing this with NIK’s software I added Kim’s summerlovin texture.



Texture Tuesday – Back to School

This week’s challenge at Kim Klassen’s was to post a photo with the theme “Back to School” and use two of her textures.  This photo is an old book on display at the Evanburg Museum and thought it was perfect for the theme.  I used a layer of kk_chamomile and kk_stainedlinen.


Begonias and Texture Tuesday

The challenge for this week was “dreamy”.  My lensbaby was the perfect choice for a lens with a wide open aperature for the most blur.  Here’s the original:

This is the same photo with Kim Klassen’s texture Dream

And another view using one of my favorite textures, Kim Klassen’s Sweettart


Pink rose in the rain.

The theme for this weeks texture is “Pink”.  I thought this would be an easy one, as I must have lots of pink flowers to work with..  But no, it seems that I don’t photograph pink.  This weekend we were on a garden tour and I found a beautiful rose in one of the gardens, so I had my “pink”.  The on and off showers during the day provided the drops on the petals.

The textures used on this one are Stained Linen and Sweetart.

Lately I’ve discovered adding textures to photos and I admit I’m a little addicted.  It all started with finding Kim Klassen’s website http://www.kimklassencafe.com/ where she showcases her beautiful photo’s and explains the textures she uses.  Each week she is gracious enough to share a new texture.  Tuesday’s are Texture Tuesday’s when others can link their photos following a theme or challenge.  For weeks now, I have watched as others have shared and I think the time has come to share as well.  This week’s challenge is the number 3 and I’ve used Kim Klassen’s Stained Linen texture.
