My Texture Tuesday Open Submission

mouse over to see the before

I'm just popping in quick to say hi and share my submission for this week's TT 'open' theme.

My tulips are open......... and Yes.... I already shared a photo on Sunday....but, seriously they are just so darn pretty....

I've decided to gift myself with fresh flowers every week until this  winter is over.... A little incentive to get me through the season.....I mean, come on..... -43 with the wind chill this morning... a girl deserves some fresh flowers..... Am I right? :)

I am sharing the photoshop recipe and video tutorial over in the Test Kitchen...  something a little new and different.

I did use Annabelle from the 12 days of textures....inverted.... on screen blend mode... I really like the effect...

Before I go.....

Things are going STRONG in the Beyond Layers class! Oh my gosh... it's so exciting. :) Seriously...I just can't even tell you the amazing group that has gathered....  It's most definitely BEYOND.

If you signed up...and did not receive the login has been sent out.... please, please send me an email so we can get you hooked up. :)

Every women should buy a flower bouquet every week in winter time, it is good for a soul. I love tulips and never bored of them, beautiful.

Beautiful, of course, Kim! I love the look of the inverted texture in the screen blend mode~~such a soft, warm look! That is definitely your forte!!!

I've been seeing a lot of tulip photos over the past few days, so I treated myself to a bouquet yesterday. Unfortunately, I am not able to afford to buy flowers very often, so I have will have to make the most of of this one. I decided to buy white tulips, so I can make them any color I want in Photoshop, lol :~)

Off to check in over at Beyond Layers, then take a lunch and laundry folding break :~)

I too have been enjoying a store-bought bouquet of tulips...from buds to their opening to the petals starting to fall off...I've been loving every aspect.

I love what you did with this capture. While the original is quite stunning with a mix of pink and purple tulips, the processed version has such a vintage appeal and I love the effect of the inverted texture.

Oh, my! Gorgeousness! :)
Visiting you is always so good for the soul, Kim! Thank you!
Oh yes, I agree! We all should get a flower bouquet every week in winter time! In fact, that's my Mom Christmas gift for me :) I was so delighted!

Yes, you are right! I buy fresh flowers every week too. I would feel at a loss without their brilliant energy in my home. LOVE flowers! And these are nice tulips here, Kim. Lovely photograph. :) I have picked up tulips this week as well - purple ones like yours, and I also picked up some buttercups. I cannot photograph yellow very well, okay . . . at all, but I love buttercups anyway!

I bought tulips again this week. They are so pretty, they even die beautifully! Thank you so much for your wonderful inspiration. x
