mouse over to see the original image - edited in LR then into PS for a touch of texture

Dear friends,

Welcome to another Texture Tuesday. Thanks for stopping by....and sharing your beautiful textured art!

This weeks theme - Free & Easy....

simply share a favourite image processed with any of my textures.

Next weeks theme ....Tuesday, April 8th

for the love of ______? whatever comes to mind.....

I can't wait to see what you all share.


Happy April sweet friends.... Here's to a beautiful month.

Today's Recipe - Both Images

Processed in LR.

First I did a quick tone... then I applied kk_touchofpink. Wanna give it a try, click HERE to download it.

I did a little dodge and burning with the adjustment brush. I added a little extra clarity to the front tulip as well. I also touched up the tulip leaf with the spot removal brush (the top image).

Then into Photoshop to add some texture.

I applied a layer of kk_simple at soft light. I masked off the texture on the front tulip and on the leaves. Finally, I added a curves adjustment layer to pull the lights down in the shadowy areas.

That was that.... : )

with gratitude.....forever...always....

Kim, As always your photos are lovely, but the second picture is exceptional. I love the composition and the texture and the emotion that this picture carries. Can't wait for the recipes! Praying that John is continuing to improve as you both navigate the world of post-cancer.

It's April & it's warm enough to open the windows. Best thing: tulips and daffodils are poking their heads out of the cold soil. Happy April, Kim.

I love the soft and etherealness of the tulip image. It actually calms me. Now all I need is some soft, soothing music to put me in a meditative mood. :)

Dear Kim,

Thanks for the very beautiful textures, your tulip shots are breathtaking. Everything here is harsh, brown and if not dead, nearly there. It's nice to be reminded how beautiful a garden can be.

I could not come up with a welcome April shot... ugh my brain is in photographers-block mode lately. So, I went with last weeks theme again :-). Beautiful shot, and thank you so much for sharing textures with us all. It is a fun little gift to receive them in an email.
