{Texture Tuesday} The Number Three eDition

mouse over to see the before




Hello TT Friends! 

So nice to see you here!  Are you ready to link up?  :)

This week .... Texture Tuesday is all about the #3.....  

And my oh my... I can not wait to see your fabulous interpretations.

But first, I have an easy-peasy recipe for today's peony photo..... 3 peonies in 3 coca cola bottles.....  

I couldn't resist...I had to photograph some more peonies.... Gosh they are so beautiful.


If only they could last all summer!  

I used the latest canvas-back freebie and another of my favs..... plaster 2 from the Studio Collection. I wanted the subtle framed edge that plaster2 creates..... but this recipe would work well with the freebie canvas-back magic texture as well.

The Three Peony - 5~Layer Photoshop Recipe

layer 1- background

layer 2 - hue/saturation adjustment magenta channel.... just slightly desaturated

layer 3 - canvas back at multiply 22% opacity

layer 4 - plaster 2 inverted and set to screen blend mode 100%

layer 5 - duplicate of layer 3

That's it...that's all....


Before we get to linking up... let's talk next week's TT challenge.....

After a little idea came to me..... (probably because I'm all about the peonies lately).

The Tuesday, July 12th TT Prompt is:

Let's get creative.... The possibilities are endless. 

Think outside the box..... have fun with it.... and when you post...share a little about your interpretation if you wish. :)


Alright TT friends.... time to link up your 'Number 3 Textured Photos'.....  

Thanks for 'playing'!!

Love.... and gratitude.....

I like that texture on the peonies. They look vintagey. Lovely props too.
Thanks for having us.

Oops I posted the wrong theme. Can you remove #14 please and I'll work on the 3 theme. Sorry.

I'm not sure how I used 4 layers of textures, but it doesn't really look like it! ;-) Thanks for the new textures....I tried Canvas Back right away.

Oops, tried this link up for the first time today (#29) and I see that the "http\\" is in the link twice, causing it not to work. Sorry can't figure out how to change it or delete it.

sigh.... just gorgeous. I so love peonies and also wish they could last all summer.
Do you know this trick? Pick some stems that are just buds, wrap them in wet newspaper and place in a plastic bag and put them in the refrigerator for a week or two, Then you can pull them out and they will open up in your vase. It's a good way to extend your peony season a little!

Great original shot Kim, the composition is so good but the texture work give it an extra dimesion and depth. Love it!!

These images are inspiring. The only thing #3 about my image is the number of textures I used. Thanks to you!

I'm not sure if I'm going to be able to play this week, but I think that Pink might just be right up my street~~in fact, I just came up with an idea :~)
