Texture Tuesday #3...

Callistemon 

I am really enjoying the challenge of Texture Tuesdays. Not only finding the right image but also choosing the right texture to go with it. This week's challenge is to use two of Kim Klassen textures, Silence and SweetTreat.

This is how I did it. 
1.   Original image layer
2.   Silence Texture layer 100% softlight blending mode
3.   SweetTreat texture layer 100% softlight blending mode
4.   Level adjustment layer to bring back some contrast

I hope you enjoy the result. If you want to come and join us, click on the button below, but be warned it can become quite addictive.

What an amazing plant! What is it called? The textures have given it an old grainy film effect (I'm sure that's not the technical name for it LOL). Fabulous!

Very nicely done. Beautiful colors.

WOW! What an amazing photo, and the textures are just perfect. I must look into the 'level' bit some more, when editing! Besides its proper name, we call this shrub a 'bottle brush' - you can certainly see why - just beautiful!
