Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday challenge this week
is to share an image with one of our favourite quotes and any one of her textures...
I was pretty excited about this!
I am a quotaholic...
and, as it turns out, my introduction to textures was when I stumbled upon
Kim's video tutorial - Textures in Ten - and through joining her "texture lovin' list"...
as well as her Skinny Mini eCourse
I pulled out one of my first texture attempts and reworked it
using what I have learned since that time
through experimentation and through many of your blogs
I used two of Kim's textures
and this is what I came up with
For this I used two layers of Kim's 'music lovin' texture, both in multiply blending mode
and one layer of her 'paper stained' texture in soft light mode
I used a soft brush to remove some of the texture on the coffee cup and added my text...
(which, as I look at it here, perhaps should have been a bit larger)
and then I couldn't stop....
I really loved the Post Card texture 'dear dreamer' that Kim sent out this past weekend!!
It reminded me of the Post Cards we sent to friends while on vacation as a kid.
I experimented with it as well...
I couldn't come up with what I felt was the right quote for it in the moment,
but since I had chosen a photo from a visit to a beach we frequented during my childhood
I decided to use it as a post card to my brother
I used Kim's texture as the background in this one
adding my text to it and then adding my photo as a layer
using the soft light blending mode at 53%
