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.

What a pretty touch up!

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.

The desaturation is very pretty in this photo. The textures give it so much depth. Nice work.
