Texture Tuesday

I am SO excited to be participating in my first photo challenge on my new photography blog.  You may have visited my other blog over at Wellblessed.  I’ve decided to move my photography posts over here and keep my family stuff over there.  BIG changes, much excitement!

Talk about changes?!  I’m actually writing this post SUNDAY night – for Tuesday!  I guess the changes have me all excited and chomping at the bit.  Or maybe it’s because I checked today to see what this week’s Texture Tuesday them is and found out it’s “red”.  I just happened to be shooting some flowers yesterday and one of them, well, you can’t get much redder than that.  Here is my offering for Texture Tuesday – Red Edition:

Raindrop Old Photo

Here’s what I did to the original:

  • added Kim Klassen’s Gray Day Vintage at 68%, brushed over the raindrop and lightly over the flower
  • added Kim’s Stained Linen at 86% and brushed over the raindrop and flower again
  • added Kim’s Taped Edge at 88%.
  • finally I did a rectangle mask on both the last two layers and brushed lightly over the center to increase the contrast between the edge and the center

There you have it.  I love checking out other entry’s into Kim’s challenge, I encourage you to do the same.  Blessings!

  7. Visiting from TT. Now THAT is RED!!!! I really like the textures you chose...they really accentuate that droplet of water. Beautiful. And congrats on the new blog! Mine is relatively new too (July) and my family says I'm OBSESSED, haha. I think they are right :)

  10. How beautiful - I am really amazed at all the shades of red. I didn't make the white doily but I did crochet the flower. Thanks so much for visiting my blog and for your lovely comment.

  11. Ah! I wondered why you commented on my blog when I didn't see a texture post for you.

    This is really gorgeous! I love that huge drop and the rich colors!
