I'm participating in Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday link-up again today. If you'd like to visit her blog, click her. She takes beautiful photos and has some of the most amazing photo textures, too.
Here is the original photo that I took last Sunday:
There is a really sweet story to this photo. An older couple in our church got married at the beginning of June. They are both in their 80s. They were both married to their respective spouses for well over 50 years. They both became widows. They met at a weekly dinner/Bible study at my church. They eventually found love again in each other. It was really sweet to see. We surprised them with a post-wedding reception after church. The wife was totally surprised. The husband knew about it all along. He can keep a good secret.
It was such a sweet, precious time. Everyone was clapping and cheering for this couple. I think the best love stories are the ones that are written by God - the Author of Ultimate Love.
Okay, so what did I do with that flower photo? See below:
Voila, here it is. I used TWO of Kim Klassen's beautiful photo textures. I used Photoshop to edit and texturize my photograph today. First I used two layers of "Reverie" texture. The first layer in soft light at 60% opacity. The second layer in hard light at 30% opacity.
Then I added a THIRD layer of "waterstained frame" at "I totally forget" opacity...just dark enough to see the waterstained frame around the edges of the photograph.
All the textures were free downloads from Kim Klassen's website. Thank you, Kim :) :) :)
That is the news from the ocean shores of California today. Extra special love and hugs to your day today, Heather
