Yellow Sign for Touch Up Tuesday

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

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
