It’s Pink for Texture Tuesday

 

America-rose-with-textureLR

Kim’s challenge for Texture Tuesday was pink.   I planted a climber this year called America that is a lovely soft pink.   For this challenge I  used Kim’s dusty rose texture at a blend mode of soft light 100% opacity and then duplicated it with a blending mode of multiply at 20% opacity.   I removed the texture from the blossom.   I then added another of Kim’s textures called aurora at a blending mode of softlight.   I made an hue/saturation adjustment layer and desaturated the photo at –23.   I loved the soft look of it.    I might actually be getting the hang of this texturing.   

 

I will be joining Kim Klassen Cafe for Texture Tuesday.    Hope you are having a wonderful week.   Valerie

I'd like to be a fairy or a lady bug and climb into the heart of the rose.
