Texture Tuesday~”Anything Goes”

Texture Tuesday’s theme is Anything Goes.  We can use a photo, phone photo, textured or not…

I chose an image from a series of shots I took with tulips last week, and added Moonlit and Desert textures from Kim Klassen’s
new Cloth and Paper Collection.

Day 12~ Brush-Lovin’

Today’s lesson was about using the brush tool as a stamp.  What fun!

I stamped the quote on my barn photo with the brush technique Kim taught us.

Day Ten ~ A Painterly Effect

“Nature is painting for us, day after day, pictures of infinite beauty.” ~John Ruskin

 

Today’s assignment in Kim’s class is to use gradient maps, filters, adjustment layers, textures, and other
techniques, to create a painted effect from a photo.

It was an interesting lesson, but I still haven’t committed the process to memory!  I need my notebook beside me!

 Kim Klassen’s textures used: Finale, Sienna and Vintage Gradient on the middle photo.

I need a lot of practice, but these are my first versions of the Painterly Effect.
I used PhotoShop Elements to process the photos.

Thank you for visiting!

Texture Tuesday: Love

“Love is a language spoken by everyone but understood only by the heart.”

For Christmas my daughter gave me the lovely designed tea cup in the photo below.
The handle is so expressive; the cup is wide and curvy.   My daughter knows me well.
She knew I’d love the cup, and she knew I’d want to create photos with it.

 Knowing someone so well, that you can find a gift that will touch their heart.
That’s LOVE.

The tea cup.

Nikon D300, lens: Nikkor 105 mm macro, f13, 1/30.
Kim Klassen‘s textures: Overlay123 in soft light @38% opacity, and
Softly on linear burn @19% opacity.

Thanks for visiting!
