REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Textures in white

Anything, and everything, I know about PSE Elements layers and textures can be credited to Kim Klassen.  Her 10-day 'skinny mini e-course' provided me with enough knowledge to at least play with Elements.  Of course, it has become a fascination for me now.

Kim's new "Texture Tuesday" invitation gives me yet another chance to take advantage of Kim's textures I've collected.

This photo of white kalanchoe blossoms was processed with 4 different textures (mona, the veil, retreat, oceanside) in a total of 6 layers.  (Maybe it's a little too much???)

Beautifully composed, Evelyn! The flowers are balanced by the use of the textures in the negative space.
