Kim's challenge this week was the number 3 and the use of at least one of her textures. since my favorite number is 3 i decided to do three Texture Tuesday exercises this week.
this first one used one of my shots of last summer's moss rose. i cropped it square and used one layer of kim klassen's (free) texture "not too shabby". i kept it pretty light handed on this one.
this second one used my own shot from spring 2009 when some of the willows in the area were doing their thing. i also cropped this one but used a 5 x 7 format and once again used the "not too shabby" texture. this one is even more subtle. i don't think one would know that there was a texture there if i didn't reveal it. it did add depth to the shot though . . .
the third one is much more involved and dramatic. the original still life was taken in 2008. i added three of kim's textures: mayzee, portrait and pourvous.
today's gifts included:
- celebrating the blessing of being an American
- the deep cool shade on a hot day
- the happiness of 'family'
