texture tuesday: gratitude


This week I used some of the new techniques learned in Kim's Skinny Mini texturing class - it's free!  Per challenge instructions, I used a couple of Kim's textures (empty page and a gray smoosh that I've lost the name of) and her great technique to boost the contrast:  duplicate the original photo and change the blending mode to soft light - instant drama.  If it's too much, it's easy to reduce the opacity to achieve the look you want.  Then add a texture or two and experiment with the blending modes and opacity til you find a combo you like.  Thanks Kim!

Check out Texture Tuesday at Kim Klassen's Cafe to see other interpretations of 'gratitude'.  Also, I just found Photo Art Friday in my blog hopping and totally love this idea!  There are so many amazing photographers who love tweaking their images with a little Photoshop play and textures so visit this site to see some amazing creativity!  So for this week I'm having my gratitude do double duty.
