Texture Tuesday

On a recent early morning walk I was so happy to see the many tiny dew drops just hanging on the tips of branches.  On closer inspection they all held a little secret of their own, a tiny mirror of the surrounding landscapes.  I textured this image and added text for this weeks texture challenge at Kim's place.
The recipe is copy the background of course then I did a levels adjustment, added Kim's Silence texture on Softlight at 100%.  Added the text in two layers to get the colour of text I was after and then brushed a vignette around the edges.
Similar picture but I wanted a grungier look for this one so after adding the text I did a brightness/contrast adjustment, then a levels adjustment and then added Oldworld on soft light at 82%.  Two different looks.
I am just showing this one again I didn't feature it last week but I did post it here.  I have used Kim's texture over one of my photographs as the background layer.  Fabulous ways to get the most from your textures.

  10. Those dew drops are so interesting! Another reason we need to slow down... imagine all that we'd miss if we don't.

    I'd never have thought of using the texture as a background --what a great idea! :)

  18. Your water droplet with its gorgeous reflection is awesome. It is one of those shots that the viewer asks...How did she do that? Love the texture processing...very appealing to the eye. The one of your and the baby is absolutely out of this world beautiful. You are so talented. Hope you have a lovely rest of the week. genie
