Autumn Colour



In our area of southern Ontario the leaves have not turned colour too much.  Farther north the show is farther along.  I did find in the Sandbox colour on the Sumac tree.   For Kim Klassen"s challenge for Texture Tuesday this week we were to use at least two textures.   I chose "ugglove" which I duplicated twice.   I then added a texture from Isabel LaFrance from her SoulGlow layers called "bright streaks".   I made my own custom brush with gratitude text. I was quite full of myself when I accomplished that.  If I did it correctly as Kim taught us last week you will notice I have a mouseover.   If it doesn't work it is back to the drawing board for me. 

I will be joining Texture Tuesday with Kim and also with Lisa Gordon for the Creative Exchange.   Valerie
