{Texture Tuesday} The Gratitude eDition Returns

mouse over to see the before


It's time for another Texture Tuesday! 

This week is all about gratitude.....

And, I"m celebrating my sincere gratitude for each and every one of you!
Thank you for visiting, for joining TT, for taking my classes, sending me notes, buying my textures, sharing my site.... I could go on and on!
THANK YOU! from the bottom of my heart.

I am so incredibly grateful!!
'sigh'... happy, happy 'sigh'!


Here are this week's TT challenge details.

  • your image must contain at least one layer of any of my textures, and center around the theme of gratitude.

For my before and after above, I used the latest freebie, that I'm totally loving.... 'poetic'... It's good stuff... for really really.... REAL!

I edited my image in Camera Raw...bumping up the exposure a little... for a soft dreamy feel. I then used a hue/saturation adjustment to get my tiny little fleurs...just the right shade of pink. And finally I added a layer of 'poetic' at soft light 100%. That's it...that's all.

Here's a few more from the shoot.... each textured with 'poetic'....

Black & White Lovin'

Before we get to linking....

Let's talk the next TT theme.

Tuesday, December 6th's TT Theme is:

Celebrate...In honor of the upcoming holidays.....

Your image must contain at least one layer of any of my textures and be centered around the word celebrate.

Kim - my first link (#38) didn't work, so I posted a second time. Sorry for that.

Oh, good grief! I have no idea why my entry posted three times. This is embarrassing! Please feel free to delete two. :)

I just love the tones in this shot. The pink flowers are delish! Nice work as usual Kim. I appreciate you too! There is so much in life to be thankful for, isn't there. It helps to recycle thankfulness frequently and apply where needed. :) Blessings to you and your new vision for your future!

The new texture 'Poetic' does add a poetic touch to the photos. I love what it does. Your little pink flowers are so pretty.

Your images are always so lovely -- soft, delicate and yet grounded in a form of reality. I have to say how much I've enjoyed the "gratitude" theme this week. I've been reading some very inspiring blog postings by TT participants, Thank You!!!!
