Textured Tuesday offering

Good afternoon my gorgeous friends

Well, today I am home with my sick little lovely :-( So while she has a long needed nap, I thought I would take a long needed break :-) So yes, coffee cup in hand I bring this short little offering to you.

Over at the gorgeous blog of Kim Klassen Cafe, (she had me at "Cafe") Kim is the beautiful creator of textured paintings (amongst other beautiful offerings), that are then used with an image in Photoshop to create some beautiful results.

Pop on over the Cafe and have a look around - Kim is very clever and knows a thing or two about Photoshop which she also offers to share through tutorials.

When I came across the Cafe, I decided it was a place I was very happy to mull over while sipping my latte: not only does Kim create beautiful textures in art through layering all sorts of mediums, but Kim also makes these lovely textures available so that we can try our own hand at a textured photo.

Gotta love that!!

So, being that my wee one is sick and Spring is beginning to bloom here in Australia - therefore I have just the image at hand - I thought why not give it a go.

So here is my before photo:

And after applying my texture and having a jolly good play in Photoshop!

This is using Kims "Art & Joy" texture - isn't the name perfect!

My end result is by no means perfect, but that's not the point :-) I had lots of fun: first because I didn't have to wash the brushes afterwards...but mostly because it was just so easy using the gorgeous texture that Kim created to get a unique result.

Have a gorgeous day!!
