{Texture Tuesday} Vintage Love


image processed with 'pour vous' and 'vintage overlay'

Hello you fabulous Texture Lovin' creative souls!!

It's time for another Texture Tuesday Link-Up Fiesta!!

This week the theme is VINTAGE..... Oh man...I'm so pumped to see your vintage inspired photos....

Bring 'em on.... my friends.

I'm going to be short and sweet......  I'm afraid....  It's been a crazy full day...and I want to have this post up and ready for all the early bird posters..... before I head up to bed....

If you are new to Texture Tuesday, please click HERE to get all the details.

Remember this week...your photo must be vintage inspired and contain at least one of my textures.

Please be sure to link to the direct url or permalink.  If this is confusing...or something new... check out the video tutorial HERE.


Tuesday, May 23 Challenge Details

I thought it would be cool to see what fabulousness we can come up with using the same texture. So.... are you ready?  Next week your image must contain at least one layer of a brand new freebie called 'yesteryear'.

Click HERE to download the texture and come on back next Tuesday to share something FABULOUS.


I have to say... I just can't seem to make it around to all of the link ups!  Ugh.. I really wish I could... but the days seem to be too short... I want you to know I appreciate the incredible participation...and beautiful community you all are creating... so very much!

Okie doke...let's get this party started.... I can't wait!  

Love and gratitude....always...

Love your camera shot, it's perfect.
Thanks for another gorgeous texture.
And thanks for hosting the link up. Lots of good work to be seen.
And I totally understand you not being able to visit each one.
Woman, you have to sleep and eat and Create too. :)

Wow! Can you see the two of us drooling over your amazing camera? ;) What a beauty!
We sure understand you not being able to visit each one of the links. We tried the last two Tuesdays and it took us a week to visit (almost) everyone. It's fantastic seeing so many people inspired by you! :D
Thanks so much! For the new gorgeous texture too, it's lovely!

all those link, it's a bit overwhelming. No-one can possibly visit all, no excuses needed :) Thank you for all the work on the TT-link-fest.
The camera and the way you shot it are gorgeous, wonderful processing (of course). Love the new freebie texture. Thanks!

I read through the thoughts of all these wonderful women. We all so admire you. Dittos to all that the above have said, but
I want you to know that I thank you most for just being REAL! (UUUMMMMMM....) Honesty, truth, and reality...are what we are drawn into...and what holds our attention and builds a connection with which we can all identify. Your willingness to express who you are and what you feel and what your struggles and successes are ... are real, and genuine...and make you more than a voice, or an artist, or an internet message, or a teacher. It makes you our friend.

Kim, first of all, THANK YOU for yet another terrific texture! I adore the old camera and how you presented it! Such a gifted artist! As for all the links for TT, I have visited almost all of you except for the ones posted after me. ( i will do that today) I LOVE all the incredibly different 'visions' and presentations of 'vintage'! There are so many gifted and talented photographers/artist out there and I love seeing your work and being a part of the sharing process! i am inspired by you all! THANKS and cheers! dianna

Dear, Dear Kim,
I Just wanted to take a moment to thank you for all that I've learned through your excellent photoshop courses. The Skinny Minny opened the door and Essentials has helped me to become very comfortable with Elements 9. I look forward to exploring, learning and creating even more unique works of art.
I've enjoyed the journey and all the freebies you so generously provide. May God bless you and continue to bring students to your site, you have encouraged me to take some bold steps in teaching myself and for that I will be eternally grateful. You are a dear!
