It is texture Tuesday again.
This week's assignment was to use one layer of Kim Klassen's new embrace texture on our photo. It is a lovely soft texture with small holes adorning the top.
I desaturated my photo about 50% to get the soft look of the otherwise harsh red berries and the bright green of the needles and lightened it up alittle. I applied Kim's February magic edges texture using the screen mode. And then Embrace at about 50% opacity using the soft light mode.
Below is the original. Kim's textures really can give an otherwise stark looking photo a very dreamy quality. I still need to learn how to do the "mouse over" technique. It is on my to-do list for this year!
This year was the first time in 29 years that my son has not been home for Christmas. It took me alittle time and a few tears to adjust to this change. I knew that when he got married that things would be different for him and for me.
My wish for the newlyweds was for them to enjoy their first Christmas together. I just needed one day...any day would do!
Friday after Christmas was "my day". We had such a wonderful evening full of laughter, food and gifts. It was well worth the wait!
