Faded Petals for Texture Tuesday

primula-textured-LR












The pretty little pale pink primula were blooming away in the side yard today.  I took several photos of them.   This one I desaturated quite a bit and then added two of Kim Klassen’s textures.  The first was “Silence” that I added two times.   The other texture I used was “Coffee tea or me”  just once.  Blending modes were a combination of softlight and multiply.   The photo was finished with a hue and saturation adjustment and saved.

It is just my pleasure if I can give some ideas or help what to make with textures. I'm learning every day something new from others and I can give something to others, that is the beauty of blogging I think:)
I'm so waiting first primulas or crocus to show up here. Great edit with your primulas.

Love the lack of color--really emphasizes the beauty of the petals and textures.

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…
