REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

The Sweet Peeps eDition

Texture Tuesday ...and the challenge is to add texture to photos of people.  As soon as Kim announced the challenge last week, I set out to take some photos that would work.   As it turned out, two of my great-nieces came to visit after their afternoon in the community swimming pool.  Perfect subjects!

I created this image of 8-year-old Kaelin with one layer of Mayzee, two layers of Canvas Grunge, a gradient map, and gradient fill.

Very striking. The contrast is beautiful.

Wonderful! This has an edgy, urban feel but is still soft and sweet, because of Kaelin's flowing hair and fluffy eyelashes. Great job :)
