Texture Tuesday...The Gratitude eDition

(Mouse over to see original)

I am taking up a new hobby. Something I have wanted to learn for quite a while.
I am grateful for having the time to do it and having the support of my 
wonderful husband in this new endeavor.

'KK Aurora' and 'PDPA Gratitude 2' textures were used on the original photo.
Some of the textures were removed using layer masks.

Fabulous Photo Art Friday...

Took this photo of the flower back in 2010 and never used it.
Used the cutout and poster edge filters in PS9, added pdpa 'Drop of Jupiter',
removing the texture from the flower.

3. Reflection

Bridge reflection down by the wetlands.

Here's looking at you.

4. Writing

My little black book.
Contains my notes from Internet Tutorials.

5. Water

Fabulous Photo Art Friday...

When I started to use textures, my 'goto' edit was to select the texture that I thought would suit
 the image and try out different blend mode till I was happy with the result.
I have learned a lot since then, but I still start out this way.

This image was processed with a 'Cut Out' Filter layer at 34% opacity,
then a 'Posteredge' filter at 48% opacity.
'pdap French Boudoir Blue' texture layer was added twice, both at softlight blend mode,100% opacity.

Wetlands Walkabout (cont.)... and a little texture

A little late posting today as I just spent the best part of the day down the Adelaide's Parklands,
 to watch the 3Day Event riders going through their paces.
