Oooh I think I'll pull out my Hot Chocolate set for this challenge. It is probably the most valuable thing I own but has even moooore sentimental value. I'll treat myself to some flowers for the shoot. Thanks for the challenge and the opportunity to win a prize. Have a great week.

Next week's challenge sounds fun Kim. I've been obsessed with photographing food lately, so that works for me :)

Hope your week is off to a great start.

Ciao Kim, thanks for another challenge and for the great giveaway chance! :)
We added our Flickr link for the challenge, but will also blog the before/after photo tonight.
LOL @ next week challenge - last time we were back in Italy, we wanted to take a few shots of our parents gorgeous tea cups, but didn't have the time. They would have been just perfect... too bad!
Have a wonderful end of April, big hugs!

It has been a great and warm easter here in Finland, I think we have broken some warm records. I'm leaving to Tuscany, Italy tomorrow for landscape photographing course and I'm so exited only sad thing is I will loose that great moment here in Finland when my cherry trees exploded to blooming:)

Well, I planned on linking up today, but I used the luminous texture (from this week) not the other one. I guess I'll try next time.
April 26, 2011 | Unregistered CommenterMarieElizabeth
Oh Kim I love your challenge for next week! I'm already thinking of the composition. Can't wait to get to work. The only thing that would make this better would be winning one of your give aways! :)

Happy Tuesday!

Thanks Kim for the chance to win! I will be linking up with Flickr. Need to figure out how to attach your button to that. Have a great day!

Next week's theme sounds like fun. Now I'll have to root through the cabinet and dust off those unused cups and saucers :-)

I would be over the moon, thrilled beyond words to win one of the sets you are offering. I mean, I literally would use a Kim Klassen Texture on every photo. I LOVE your textures - I am giddy every time I open my email to find a new texture waiting! xoxo

(Almost forgot that it was Tuesday with the extra long weekend! =^P )
Sounds like a fun challenge for next week.
Thanks so much for your great textures! =^D

Hi Kim!
Firstly, thanks so much for starting Texture Tuesday! You're the best!! AND I don't need a giveaway to spend time here - but wanted to thank you for coming up with that anyway :) - so kind! You make Tuesday fun!

OK, Now that being said, I just wanted to comment on your Serendipity Texture, because it surprised and delighted me. Just looking at it I would imagine something different, but instead, I feel like this texture transforms and infuses it's image with a slightly mysterious, haunted feel - and on a very very subtle level. I LOVE how my vineyard turned out, and I found that I LOVED the participants today who worked their photos in that "feel" too...the cabin, the sunny porch and rocking chair, the windmill, the owl, the old two story house, the forests, and even the white angel and the wisteria take on a sort of haunted appeal.
So my point is, I just wanted to share what I found to be such an unexpected delightful nuance in your Serendipity texture!! Truly, you named your texture perfectly! Thank you!!!

Thanks Kim! The give away looks great !!
Also I am loving the coffee/tea cups challenge next week and think it's a fun and creative idea!

Blessings :)
