Texture Tuesday "It's the Little Things"

Monday, August 8, 2011 · Posted in , ,

The challenge for this weeks Texture Tuesday over at the Kim Klassen Cafe is to do a picture with the theme "it's the little things".  There are so many little things in life to enjoy it was hard to pick one for this challenge but I went with something pretty typical for me...flowers.

I love the lilacs that line our back fence and every spring they are so beautiful.  I thought they would be a good match for Kim's Inspired Magic texture.



For this effect I added one layer of inspired magic and adjusted the blending mode to Screen at 71% opacity, I then added an adjustment layer and using the eraser at 36% opacity and removed some of the texture from the flowers right in the middle of the photo.  I then added a second layer of inspired magic, adjusted the blend mode to soft light at 70% and again added the adjustment layer and removed some of the texture from the middle.  I really like the way it turned out.
