I plan to experiment some more with Kim's tutorial on two methods of how to copy the colors and tone onto the skin while removing the texture. I tried with one photo today, but the photo overall just didn't work out.
This photo is the result of having the wrong settings on my camera--too dark--but the result is "a really cool bubble!" in my son's opinion.
Be sure to hop over to Kim Klassen's Cafe for other Texture Tuesdays, My 3 Boybarians for some more Sweet Shots, and Katie Lloyd Photography for Scripture and a Snapshot.
