{TextureTuesday} The Cracker Jack eDition


mouse over to see the before

We're back with another Texture Tuesday!

This week... we're using last week's 'Cracker Jack' texture.

If you do not have 'Cracker Jack' join the list and you will receive the download link in your inbox.

I thought I would share my little Brownie that John picked up a few weeks ago.....  Isn't it a sweet thing? 

I processed the photo using RadLab. I then added one layer of 'cracker jack' at soft light 100% opacity. I also added 2 layers of a soon to-be-released texture I call, The New GreyDay at soft light 100% opacity.

I'm over at Shutter Sisters today, sharing my RadLab crazy-love with a video review, and walking you through this photo's pre-texture processing.  

I'd love to see you there!!
And do leave a comment for a chance at Shutter Sister's daily $100.00 gift giveaway fabulously sponsored by Paper Coterie

And seeing as we're talking textures, did you see the new Ultimate Bundle II?
It's a collection of 48 fab textures, by me.... Click HERE to check it out. By request, I've extended the half price offer until midnight tonight. 

Okie doke, before we get to linking up.... let's talk next week's TT theme.

Tuesday, September 13th TT Challenge Details are:

How bout a verb? Let's go with the verb 'do'.....

This texture was just wonderful. I have used it twice and it gives the look of aged cracked leather. That inspired me for a Halloween project. Here when I used it on the cup, it looked aged and crazed. Such a fun texture to work with!! Thanks!

All the photographs in TT's entries today are wonderful. It's a joy to be one of the group. Looking forward to see all the ones added during the week.

The quote in your photo has me considering...what am I doing? Am I taking photographs or making them? After reading that, maybe I can remember to slow down just a bit and actually "make" a photograph now and then.

I love your post -- you create such beautiful images, and inspire us to do the same. What more is there in life? I have to tell you that Cracker Jack is one of your best textures yet. It is so versatile; I love the wonderful effect it has on all different kinds of photos. Thank you so much for everything you do!

I love that I found this meme and your blog. I love that you offer a few textures for free so a newbie like me can participate. I love that this encourages me to get out and DO some photography.
