There Was A Boat

 

 

boat with texture and frame

As I was coming along the country road I spied this little boat in a pond.   I stopped and took a few pictures of it.   Kim’s challenge for Texture Tuesday was to use two textures.   I changed the colour photo to a black and white and then added Kim’s texture Autumn burst on blending mode of softlight and turned it so that the holes were on the left.  I did a levels adjustment and then added Kim’s luminous on colour burn blending mode.  To finish off I added a solid colour of a blue shade and brought the opacity down.  I added a gaussian blur and added a frame from Isobel LaFrance.  

I will also be joining Lisa Gordon for the Creative Exchange.   Have a wonderful day. Valerie

Wow, great processing. I love the end result. Even though the colors in the photo are tranquil the boat almost looks like it has a full on smile.

A wonderful image!!
I read your description of the work you did on your photo and realize that I have so much to learn. The boat has such a nostalgic, moody feel to it.
Thanks for stopping by my blog.

What a great idea to change the photo to B&W and then add a texture. The frame works well 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…
