Sharing a Little Texture Love 

The Downton II Collection 

Hello friends,

Happy Valentines....  I'm not a huge fan of this Hallmark holiday... it's a little too commercial...But.... it's always nice to share a little love.....

Don't you think? 

And so, I give you.... The Downton II Collection.

isobel, anna, violet & daisy

Texture Lovin' Listers, the download link is on its way.

Not on the list, click HERE to sign up and start receiving freebies right away.

I hope you enjoy this collection. I've been making some lovely with them. I used Daisy and Isobel on my uptop photo both at soft light.... about 60% opacity.

I've added a link up below this post. I know it's not TT, but I thought it'd be fun to throw a little extra play into the week... I invite you to pop back and share your Downton II Textured photos with us. I'd love to see what you create. 

Brand new to textures? 

Pop back tomorrow... I have some new step by step texturizing tutorials to share.... 

Also, I mentioned I was going to announce my new class information last week. A few things happened that interrupted my schedule but I'm finding my way back on track. I will share the class info tomorrow..... 

Finally, Tesk Kitchen members, there's a new collection waiting for you...  A little extra special gift.... Be sure to grab it. It will only be available for the month of Februrary.

Thought I'd send a little LOVE your way...

I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart...

I'm not a professional photographer, but a hobbyist. I have totally enjoyed all your freebies and even most joyful is playing around with them in Photoshop.

Thank you so much for all your hard work and complete generosity with all of your textures! Haven't had to spend a dime, but then again, I have to income to spend!

signed--a happy hobbyist.

Ahhh Kim, the Downtown II Collection is so dreamy romantic. It has made my day (doesn't have to be Valentines day at all) and I am full of smiles. Thank you for this loveliness. xo

I was so happy to discover your blog. I'm not a photographer but I love to take photos. When I heard about adding textures I had no idea what that meant but I was curious. I am happy to have signed up for your newsletter and gotten a couple of freebies so far. I look forward to learning how to apply them. Thanks for your dedication to an awesome art form! Your work is stunning :)

I have tried twice to get on your list. I fill out the info but I never get an email to confirm it. I just found your blog and love your textures. Love the puppy photos too!

How can I get on the list?
February 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLois
I guess third time is lucky as I now have received a confirmation email!

Will I receive link to the above textures? They are beautiful :)
February 15, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLois
Thank you for this lovely collection! I'm considering of joining the test kitchen, I just do not have a Photoshop nor the Illustrator ... I'm learning to use Pixrl,which I use when setting texture layers on the photos.
February 17, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNina
I just was released from the hospital this evening, USA-EST, and want to thank you for your generosity in leaving this link available. The color mix of the textures is just phenonimal. Blessings. ;)
