Texture Tuesday News, A BTS Give Away & A New Video


Hello friends,

How are you? Happiest Sunday. 

I'm finally ready to 'spill' the TT news..... I'm excited.... 

Let's get to it, shall we?

I have a few Texture Tuesday changes I'd like to introduce. 

The first Tuesday of each month Texture Tuesday will be called 'Not Necessarily Texture Tuesday'...... What does this mean? I'm glad you asked! :) This is a chance to link up your fav photo of the month. It can be textured, untextured, edited, unedited.... or even an iPhone photo. I love iPhoneography! Link away..... Share your fav photo and inspiration with the TT group! Woo hoo! 

Starting In July... The Last Tuesday of the month will be open for Guest TT Hosts.....
Would you like to be a guest Texture Tuesday Contributor here at the Café?
I will have submission guidelines up on the site in a few days. Please watch for the details. I think this could be GREAT fun!! Stay tuned for all the info.

Now, that takes us to this Tuesday...... we need a theme..... Right!

Tuesday June 26th's Texture Tuesday theme is:

How about flowers? Your photo must cotain a lovely posie or 2 or 10. It must be textured with at least one layer of any of my textures. That's it...that's all... Easy peasy.....

Starting Tuesday...we are back on schedule.... Woo hoo... See you there!

I have some other exciting news to share. So stay tuned for further details soon.

If you are wondering when I will be sending out your freebie texture... not to worry... I think it's going to be Mondays. :) So watch for a new one tomorrow....

I'm super excited about the new ideas.... I will be introducing the changes a snippet at a time.... over the next little bit.

I just want to say thank you for all the support you send me each week. Please know I am forever grateful...... happy..... 'sigh'....


I know I've talked a lot about our new eCourse, Behind the Scenes. Thank you so much to all who are joining us. We can not wait to begin.
Class starts on Tuesday!! We will be sending you the class login info tomorrow. Watch for it in your inbox!

Class registration is closed....Good news though....we saved a spot for one lucky winner.

For a chance to win a spot in Behind the Scenes, leave a little hello in the comments section below.

The winner will be announced here on Tuesday June 26th.

Please note: when you fill out the comment box  be sure to include your contact info in the corresponding boxes.


Before I sign off..... In between my tech troubles, getting ready for Behind the Scenes...and life in general I've been practicing video with my new Nikon..... I have to say, it's quite the learning curve... but I'm slowly getting the hang of it. 

I have another little snippet from the front porch.... Bryce is trying to teach Ben to play dead..... too cute.... I'm not sure this trick is ever going to be possible.... Ben's tail never stops wagging...
Anyhow, check it out if you have a few moments.....

Here's to a beautiful week!

Your video of Ben is just too too cute. Thanks for posting it.

I would love to take part in Behind the Scenes, but do not have the $ to do so. I love TT and am so inspired by Beyond Layers. I recently bought a DSLR camera - learning new things about taking pgotos and editing them too - I love it all! My brain is exploing with all the possibilites...
June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPat
I would sure love to be a part of that eClass!
June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCrimsonCrow
I'd squeeze my thumbs, as well, if they weren't arthritic.
I would really love to win this ... so many bit and pieces floating about in the ether that I need to bring together in one place.
Here's hoping!

Love to win a place in your class.

Thanks for the smiles! It looks like the major hurdle in playing dead will be to get Ben's tail to stop wagging. ;~) Hello from the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Canada!

I am so inspired by all that you do! I was online, at 11:56 PM, the last minutes to sign up for your new class...and regretfully did not hit that final key. I know it will be a great class, and I am soooo looking forward to your creations!! I just did not feel like I have what it takes *yet*...but, am pretty sure I will be signing up for one of the Behind the Scenes sessions in the future. You are amazingly talented...thank you for sharing so much!!
June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSweet 7D
Looking forward to all the exciting changes. Good for you taking time to relax and recharge on the weekends! thanks for a chance to win a seat in the class.

Hooray for "not necessarily Tuesday! Because of work I often miss Tuesday link-ups!
Oh! My Oh! My! Would I ever be grateful for the opportunity to win this class. My lack of hours at work and my wallet/plastic simply won't allow for it right now but I really think I would learn SO much from this class -as I have from all of of your work. Thanks for sharing so much of your life and your talent.

I've been trying to think of where to focus my creative energies and, thanks a lot to you, I've made imagery a main focus one again.

ps...not that Ben's beloved or anything right?!!
June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMarie Z. Johansen
I'm sitting here with two sleeping pups at my feet, enjoying their company as I'm sure you do your Ben! Life is a gift, and such sweet companionship a treasure. A good reminder for me to be thankful :)
June 24, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterheather

Such a cute video! I have exactly the same assortment of plants in a hanging pot as yours in the video. I enjoy the colour combination. Would love to win a spot in the class. Thanks for all you do!
June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMarion
Love the 'if-all-else-fails-I'll-put-my-head-in-his-lap-and-look-cute-whilst-wagging-my-tail-furiously" trick! Heehee.
Too cute. Great quality video... I'm glad you are having fun with the new camera!
As always, thanks for all you do. I learn a ton from you, and love your textures.
Have a fabulous weekend.

June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterLee Ann G. bandwidth can't cope with the video, but I saw snippets. Ben is the cutest. Just saying. :) x
June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDenise
Another chance at the e-course! Fingers crossed ☺. The changes will be so fun + it will be exciting to hear from some of the gifted photoshop artists I have come to appreciate through BL and TT...

June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterCindy
Exciting times!!
June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterMiriam
Love the new ideas and your making TT more interactive. Will look forward to the guest posts! Sounds great!
June 24, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterColleen Ray
OMG! This video was GREAT!! i got such a kick out of Bryce AND Ben! my daughter’s dog Faith knows this trick. She is so smart and learns SO fast if there is food involved....but her tail never plays dead with the rest of her just like Ben’s!!!
Thanks so much for the chance to win a spot in the class. i appreciate your generosity always!
PS. keep working with him, Bryce...he will get it! (try bacon!!! LOL!!)
