Texture Tuesday - Love

The prompt for this weeks Texture Tuesday was Love.... no worries this shot sprang immediately to mind.  My daughter Alicia with her very new baby girl Elle.  Is there anything stronger, anything more pure, anything more lasting and true than the love of a mother for her baby.  I don't think so.  I remember this day, Alicia tired and a little nervous I think about being a new mum again.  This time it was different though, this time her beautiful baby came home, this time she got to hold her in her arms and snuggle her soft sweet neck.  She got to smell her delicious baby scent.  This time she said she really knew she was a mumma.  I could tell she was in love, I could feel that love pouring from her to Elle as she held her.  Oh there is nothing like a mother's love.
Recipe for this layering and texturing is:
Duplicate the pic convert to black and white at about 60% opacity
Layer with Kim's subtly yours texture on multiply at 77%
Layer with Kim's if only texture on softlight at 100%
Add two colour fill layers in a pink and a soft mauve
Add the frame layer and voila you have it.

I am taking a Finding Your Eye course with Kat at the moment too and so far enjoying it immensely.  You can find my efforts on flickr or drop by Kat's and see what she has to offer.

  1. Wonderful! I know what you are feeling. It's not hard to fall in love all over again, is it! Congratulations to your sweet daughter and granddaughter. I start watching mine next Monday when April goes back to work. She will be so sad, I'm sure.
