Yellow Sign for Touch Up Tuesday

IMG_6435
It was Family Day today in Ontario.   Unless you worked for the Federal Government you had the day off to spend with your family.   My husband and I took a little walk down by the river near our house.  Many snowmobiles use the river to zip up and down when it is frozen.    This is my SOOC.
sign with texture
This is my edited version using a texture.   I first edited the photo using Grants curves as Ashley Sisk suggested last week, and adjusted levels.   I added the first texture (paper stained light by Shadowbox Creations?) with a blending mode of multiply.  I added another layer of the texture at Soft light. I used a layer mask on both layers and took off the layer only on the sign.   Added my watermark and flattened the image.
I am joining Chelsey for Touch Up Tuesday at Paper Heart Camera.   Have a great day.   Valerie

Nice photo work.

Oh, and Happy Presidents Pets Day -the day after Presidents Day, as I like to call it. In the US, we love our presidents..... pets. See my blog if you’re in the mood for a good ol' irreverent howl.
