Colourful Flowerpots

 

IMG_5979

A while ago I purchased these three colourful little flower pots at the Dollar Store.   I intended them for the window sill with herbs in them.    It never happened.  They ended up with pencils etc in them.   The other day I was looking for something to photograph and this is it.   I am not unhappy with it just as it is.

I love the art of putting textures on photos though.   I used a texture lesson from Kristy at lnr-laboratory to place a texture on the pots.   The method is practically the way she instructs you to do it.   The texture I used was one from Kim Klassen called Coffeeteaorme.   I loved the vintage effects of the photo.  

Chelsey at Paper Heart Camera hosts Touch Up Tuesday.   Come by and see the fantastic things other photographers can do with some editing.  

Have a great day.  We are expecting a big snow storm to come through today.   Valerie

Val, I thought you were going to say you painted these pots - something I've done many times and enjoyed creating them.
The after photo does add an interesting look but I find the original fine too.
