Texture Tuesday

here we are at another tuesday. the challenge at Kim's this week was to use at least one layer of her (free) texture 'aurora'.
my columbine have mostly finished their bloom time and now present their funny little jester style seed pod heads.

 Sweet Surrender

i used the (challenge) texture of 'aurora' as well as 'pour vous' on these two images.  the second image is different only in that i've added a border.
do you prefer one more than the  other?

Sweet Surrender (with border)

today's gifts have so far included:
  • waking up in my own bed (i've been out of town for a few days)
  • cinnamon rolls for breakfast
  • the ability to 'lose' myself while playing in photoshop


  1. Love 'Sweet Surrender' Libby - definitely without the border though, the image just doesn't need it. x

  2. I think I like it with the border - a simple, but captivating image.

  3. I really love the first one! It looks so elegant on its own. Beautiful job with the textures.

  4. I agree with you that sleeping in one's own bed is amazing. I am sleeping at Kelli's (hard bed) with the cat. Not fun. You do amazing things with photos, Libby Q!

  5. I love your idea of listing your daily treats/gifts. That is something I might take on next year as well as texture tuesday if Kim is still doing it next year. Unfortunately, I have too much on this year to do it now

    I love your columbine photos and think I prefer the one without the border as it then enhances the texture you have added and also the columbine itself

    lots of love xx

    ps. did you know Evelyn is my sister. nice to see her on the sidebar there xx

  6. Beautiful images ~ they're both lovely but if I had to pick, I'd go for the one without the border!! I just love Kim's aurora texture!!

  7. a lost self might be the true self.
