Home Bench

 

Front bench with and then some texture

For our challenge this week for Texture Tuesday we were to use the texture “and then some”.  I used it on a photo of the little bench by the front door.   I used the texture twice with blending modes of lighten and softlight.  I did use a layer mask to take of texture where I did not want it.  I even added a little bit of whimsy with some Halloween brushes.  

I will be joining Kim Klassen for Texture Tuesday and also Lisa Gordon at the Creative Exchange.    Have a great week.  Valerie

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.
