Japanese Quince for Texture Tuesday



The Japanese Quince is beautiful at this time of the year but it needs a severe pruning.  It tends to ramble through the flower bed and it is becoming too large for the area.  

I began editing this photo with a texture called Raggedy Paper 4 and then something came over me.   I began to be the mad scientist adding this and subtracting that and lost track of what I did do so I cannot give a snip today.  I really like the dark painterly feel of this picture though.  I think that the Quince really suits this kind of photo.   I also found a template for the four corners but I have no idea where it came from. 

I am joining Kim Klassen Café for Texture Tuesday.

I've never heard of Japanese Quince before. It's really pretty. Your editing is great. It is fun to get lost in the editing "mode", isn't it?

I love this colour - I have one that's more pink but I'd love an orange one! This is a beautiful photo and I really love what you've done with the editing.
Great edit job Val. I love the way the orange pops against the dark background. Tired!!!

Flowering quince was the first thing blooming in my new garden this year and I love it!!
What a gorgeous photo, and the textures make it look more like a painting than a photograph.

I love the scrapbook corners you added as well. The perfect touch for a glorious photo.

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…
