It’s still Tuesday somewhere: Texture Tuesday

It’s been awhile since I participated in Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday.   Once I started to do a quick edit this image, I ended up playing around with it for a long time.  And then suddenly it wasn’t Tuesday, but Wednesday.   Although I didn’t turn into a pumpkin at midnight, I will wither soon if I don’t get some shuteye.  But, before I go, here’s an image I shot a few weeks ago.   Love how these beautiful flowers just seem to spring forth everywhere around here.   Driving down any street and seeing these in the ditches and beside the shoulder of the road, especially where they have not been planted — and they are planted in many, many gardens — makes me smile.  The little rebels!

Textured with the following textures by Kim Klassen:  July_2, Elevate, and Chalkmagic.   Added — and subtracted in parts — two color fill layers, one brown for background, one yellow for the flower to bring back some color lost with the textures.   As I went to post this, I saw that Kim had made 3 new textures available.    What could I do but use one of them — Culligan_scripted — to frame the shot.

  1. What joyful flowers to have bloom wild where you live!

  2. These flowers are definitely prolific and I’ve seen them a lot lately…always so pretty too. Love how you finished this macro shot and a nice frame. Nice to see you again….there never seems to be enough time for all we want to do. Have a lovely week!
