A Pot of Tea

flower tea pot textured

This pretty little teapot with the pink roses was filled with Creamy Earl Grey yesterday at a class I attended where we learned the fine points of making a high tea with cookbook author Moira Sanders.    I used two layers of Kim Klassen’s “sweet tart” texture with blending modes of softlight and multiply.   I used the layer mask to remove the textures from the tea pot.   I used an action of Pioneer Woman called “soft and faded”.  and then added the text and left it there.   I had not really noticed until I started editing that I got some bokeh in there.   
The use of textures can be found at Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday and touch ups at Camera Heart Camera for TouchUp Tuesday.   See you there.    Valerie


Such a pretty teapot and with a favourite tea of mine.
Moira is good friends with my daughter's sister-in-law, what a small world.

I love what you did with the teapot. I hope to take an e-course with Kim this summer. So much to learn!

Tea must taste very delicate from beautiful pot:)
My hubby is not always very happy if I hadn't empty my "studio" and he is going to sleep, once I had taken pictures in dining table and there was no space even for his tea cup...not good:)

Darling teapot, Val, and GREAT processing. You have really embraced texturing your photos and the results are super.

Oh, I would LOVe to learn how to do a proper high tea. Even though D is English, I must say I'm useless at serving tea. :)

Great work! I love all you you did and appreciate your sharing the recipe. Love the teapot too.
Thanks for your comment. We had tornados close to home. But, all is well.
I collect tea pots! Is that an Old Country Roses tea pot? It looks similar to one that I have.

I love the way textures look and I am trying to learn how to use them. I downloaded them from Pioneer Woman but I can't figure out how to get them on PSE. I think my computer may just be to old to run Elements7 properly.

I really like the aged look of this! The textures give it wonderful character.

And thanks for stopping by my place too. =)

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…
