We are back!
It's time for another Texture Tuesday Link-Up party!
And this week, pretty much anything goes!
Share your fav photo....textured with at least one layer of any of my textures!
That's it! That's all!
I just had to whip up another lilac photo! My, oh my...I love the lilacs....and they are so gosh, darn versatile too!
Today's processing is a little complicated...I'm afraid I don't have the full recipe for you. But if you are a TK member...watch for a video in the next few days! I need to 'sort out' the recipe. It's quite lengthy.
What I can tell you.... as I sit here completely brain dead (exaggeration but only a slight one)....I used 2 textures from the Studio Collection!
Here's a little peek at the textures.
softly cloudy day
Basically I desaturated the image using several black and white gradient map adjustment layers at different blend modes. I then brought back some of the color in the lilacs using layer masking. Then added a layer of softly at multiply and a layer of cloudy day at soft light.... both at 100% opacity!!!
That Sweet New Collection I mentioned?!?
Time for a little family story? :)
If not, scroll down and check out next week's TT details.
As I mentioned on Sunday....I hoped to have a nice little texture collection ready to offer up today!
But a phone call in the middle of the night from Mr. Bryce.... (I'm locked out...yadda, yadda... long story... basically not that complicated...just his brother was asleep, cell phone on silent and his apartment keys were on the counter).... anyhow, he had to drive home in a storm...Ugh...so like any mom would do, I sat up anxiously awaiting his arrival...Thankfully, he made it home safely... and quickly went to sleep....leaving his mother wide awake...with her neverending thoughts!! (at least I had some note-worthy thoughts)....
And there's more... Fast Forward about 3 hours....finally asleep.... Phone rings.... It's 6:15 am...
Brett, 'I can't find my keys!'. He had to be at work here in town at 7.... 'sigh'.... Jump up, get dressed... about to head out the door to pick him up... (30 minute drive)... Anyhow, just before I hopped in the escape...he called! 'Mom, have you left yet? I found the keys'....
I said to my hubby...very grumpily... Empty Nest my Butt (i may have used another word for butt... I won't go there, though....)
So today I was just too darn tired. I didn't have the energy to put the finishing touches on my new creations.
The new textures will be coming soon!
Let's talk next week's TT details!
This could be a FAB learning experience for us all!
Next week, our photos must contain a person or people and at least one layer of any of my textures.
Aaaack.... is anyone else besides me a little freaked out by that? :)
As you know I don't do a lot of textured people pics! Actually I don't do a lot of people pics, period! I want to change that!
I love people pics...and I love a good textured people photo... So this could be extremely inspiring!
Please join me in the challenge. :) I can't wait to see what we all come up with!

Let's get this party started.... Link away, my friends.....
I apologize this did not go up at 12 am. 'sigh'. I must have goofed up the scheduling.....
