{Texture Tuesday} The Sweet Peeps eDition

Welcome to another Texture Tuesday Party!! 

Are you ready to link up your people pics?  I seriously can not wait to see what you all have been up to!!  

I have a little inspiration for you today.... Thanks mainly to my fab friend, Denise....  She takes the most gorgeous people pics... and She has one of the cutest little girls... on Earth... I can't wait for you all to meet Phoebe.  :)  

But first, just one more of my archive images..... I really like what the texture did to the background.... and the depth it added to the model's clothing is pretty cool too.

Now, just a few fab photos from Denise! Thank you my friend! You are AWESOME.  

Check this photo out.....  can you guess what historic building this handsome fellow is leaning up against?



Can you guess?  

I won't leave you hanging...  Haha....He's leaning up against Windsor Castle!!! How flippity flip fab is that?  :)

And last but not least....  you must meet Phoebe...... Could this capture be anymore perfect?  I can't help but feel happier, when I look at this!! 'sigh'

Denise, you are one lucky Mama. :)

I think of Mary Tyler Moore every single time I look at this photo! And the theme song from Mary plays in my head! 

'You're going to make it after all!'.....

UK peeps...if you are interested in getting some fab photos taken of your kidlets...or the whole family... Pop over to Denise's site and get in touch....  She's amazing!!  


Okie doke... before we get to linking up.....we must figure out a challenge for next week! 

I thought it'd be cool to pick one texture and see what wonderful works you all come up with!  

So the challenge for next Tuesday, June 28th is:

You must use at least one layer of the texture golden. I originally shared it HERE.

Here's a peek......


If you are new to the Café and you missed the download... click HERE to access it.

New to Texture Tuesdays? Click HERE to get the scoop, on linking up etc..... 

Remember this week's link up, must be to a people pic.... :)

Thanks again for being a part of Texture Tuesday!  


p.s. The Essentials class starts today?  Are you in? :)

Thank for the wonderful textures and the challenges! Finding people who are willing to be photographed isn't easy.

Oh, so fun! I was rather heavy-handed with my textures.....I still have much to learn. Thank you for the great challenge!

Really enjoying your Texture Tuesday and all the wonderful people who post here. I've enjoyed visiting many of their sites so far as well as your sites. Thanks so much for your generosity of the Textures. I just got my Adobe a few weeks ago, although I've always had photoshopping programs but never used Textures.

I must say I love the photos that include people way more than all the lovely florals (which are stunning too)...faces are so interesting!

Your work is wonderful! This was an especially hard challenge to pull off because of the difficulties getting the skin to look good; thank you for your textures, your tips, and for providing a place to play!

Thanks for the challenge this week. It was fun trying it on something different!
Thanks Kim! Your textures and techniques are great!! Can't believe how easy it is to really make a difference in the "feel" of a photo. This is waaaaay too much fun!!
It is hard to texture people but worth the effort....thanks again for hosting!

I've been seeing your button on blogs ever since I started blogging. I'm glad I finally made it over to your blog and discovered how easy it is to add a texture! Thanks for all the wonderful textures. I'm loving it!

It is always so fun to see how others use the textures! One question though, how do I get the link to comment on others images on Flickr. I see comments saying "Seen at Texture Tuesdays" with a link in blue back to this site? Thanlks, Jill

Ahhh Kim, thanks so much for all the lovely things you said about my work and about Phoebe. She is indeed my inspiration and does keep me laughing (or crying!) depending on the moment. I adore using textures in my people portraits...huge thanks to you for all I learned in your Photoshop really got me started and continue to inspire and teach me today!
I love seeing all the creative and artistic work your 'peeps' create....keep them coming!!! :) xxo Denise
