{Texture Tuesday} Free & Easy eDition Guest Hosted

beautiful image by Sylvia - mouse over to see the original

Hello everyone, I'm Sylvia from Cosiness and I'm so honoured and excited to be the guest host here at the Café today, thanks so much Kim!

This week's TT theme is free & easy ... anything goes ... the only requirement is your image must contain at least one layer of any of Kim's textures. Kim is so generous giving a lovely free texture each week and with her magical tips and tricks she encourages to make wonderful creations.

For this week's challenge I chose a photo of pretty sweet peas from our garden ... adjustment layer Brightness/Contrast to add more contrast, black & white adjustment layer at Soft Light 100% opacity, a layer of 'take heart' at Multiply 56% opacity, a layer of 'sweettreat' at Soft Light 100% opacity, adjustment layer Curves, blue and green channel a bit down, added my name, the font is 'writing something by hand'

Tuesday September 4ths Texture Tuesday Details

Next week is the first Tuesday of the month and the theme is always Anything Goes. This means you are free to link up any photo you like ... textured, not textured, iphone, edited, unedited ... simply link up a fav photo.

I want to end with John C. Maxwell's quote : 'Dreams don't work unless you do.' I'm looking forward to see your creations ...


Big thanks to Sylvia for hosting this week's TT. Sylvia's photo touches my heart... so very lovely. 'sigh'....

Please.... leave sweet Sylvia some love in the comments...and pop on over to her site to say hello..... There's nothing sweeter than a little love and encouragement along the way. Don't you think? :)

Thank you again Sylvia....

happy sigh.....xo, Kim

Hi Sylvia,
Such a lovely photo! I really like the perspective it was shot at and the sweet little flower.I have that same bottle in a greenish tint and it's one of my favorites. Very beautiful!

Lovely shot, Sylvia.....the single stem of sweet peas in the antique bottle. It has that beautiful dreamy look that I like so much.

Hi Sylvia – your sweet pea photo is so beautiful! I love the composition of your photo. That the hard clear glass of the jar contrasts with the soft delicate stem and flower of the sweet pea. And the dreamy feel that the texture gives this image. So pretty.
