open heart...


"The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart."
~carlos santana~

It is texture tuesday once again.  Our prompt is the word, open. 
 I struggled with this word and how i could capture it in a photo. 
Then one day i was shopping at one of my favorite garden centers...Blumen Gardens,
 and i found my inspiration.
An angel was painted on a vintage barn door; her wings wide open. 
 I found her so beautiful and compelling.
 She reminds me to have an open heart and just believe.

I desaturated my photo about 50% and then applied kim klassen's texture, Annabelle.  It has beautiful music along its edge.  I used the multiply mode at 40%; then created a new layer to type the word believe.

Until next time...
