Texture Tuesday

Kim's Texture Tuesday is here again, boy the days fly by now.  I used to think it was just me, being busy or something, but everyone is saying it how time is just rushing by.  Anyway todays offering is a selection of my water colour pencils in my studio.  I have always loved those shots of paint brushes all jammed together in a jar, tipped with paint, asking me to imagine what wonderful work had been created by with them, so here are my pencils, as you can see quite long tips, not a lot of work done with these babies ha ha!!  I have used the red one a little bit for the cheeks on my She Art girls, and um that's about it really.  As I have said I think, this art stuff is new to me, but I have all the gear believe me.

Anyhow on to the recipe for the texturing:

Duplicate the picture and make it Black and White Urban and overlay at 33%
Add Kim's Antique texture on soft light at 100%
Add Antique again on multiply at 49%
adjust levels to please you
and Brightness and Contrast to suit you.
And Voila done.

And for everyone who is missing the Princess since she started child care on Fridays here she is honing up on her soccer skills.
Playing peek a boo.
And making her nanny smile of course.  What an angel and she is 1 tomorrow Happy Birthday Elle.  xxoo
