Texture Tuesday--March 29th

I have not explored with textures very much; I am finding I just really like my photos to represent what I actually see.  I'm not very "artsy."  However, I have seen people use textures in some lovely ways and sometimes "blah" does become interesting with a texture.  So this week I am joining Kim Klassen's new link--Texture Tuesday.  I have learned a lot about using Photoshop Elements from her and love getting her free textures in my e-mail each Friday.

Here is my currently favorite texture photo:
This done with Kim's "Nature's Beauty Jan 28" Texture

Have a Blessed Tuesday!

Very good Cedar and I like how you've made one of your cornus stems the original colour the rest look very abstract. Nature's beauty texture is lovely with this image.

I like it! I'm usually the same way, I like to see the photos SOOC, but sometimes the texture photos are amazing.

See, it's all about having textures with the right shots and I really think you hit the nail on the head! I've used textures on several shots of mine and I hated them all and I'm conviced I just used the wrong shots.

Hi Cedar -- I like what you've done, and being "artsy" is the result of a lot of experimentation and practice, I've found!

It looks great!! I'm not artsy either, so glad to have found some great resources to help out! Love the picture.

WHAT? Not "Artsy?" HA! This is fantastic! Totally different then any other pics. Love your choices of texture too - it contrasts with the bleak wintery look. Warms it up, and makes a hopeful gardner want to look for sprouts! I love this pic! :)
Your blog is lovely - your personal photos are really really good... sorry, you're definitely ARTSY! hehe!
love,
Sherilyn at Clear Crick Cottage
