Hello friends...happy Sunday.... It's a long weekend here in Canada... not sure about the rest of the beautiful world? yes? no?... My boys are all enjoying the fact that they have an extra long weekend.....Me, personally.... well, I find long weekends cut my 'work' week up.... which rarely ever feels like work... So I'm not nearly as excited about the holiday.... 'smile'.... But it's all good!!
So, I have several tidbits for you today.......
First, your new textures! I used both on my image up top..... Check out the magazine (Somerset Life)... I've booked an hour with myself on the front porch to soak it up after I take Ben out... woo hoo!
Anyhow, here's today's lovelies... they have great chalky qualities... which I really like in a texture.

Here's my recipe for the photo above.
Opened the image in Lightroom.... tweaked the exposure, and reduced the saturation a little. Added a little tone curve bump...then headed right into photoshop to work with texture and type..... I added a layer of today's 'printed' at soft light 75% opacity and then a layer of 'way' at soft light 100%. Finally I added the quote.... The font is Afta Serif.
As promised I must announce the give away winner of, The Natural Home.....
