Texture Tuesday

I know I've been doing Presentation Tuesday, but it's going to be moved to another day.  Every once in a while I want to do Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen.  I don't know what I'm doing yet, but I figure I'll learn something.


Here's my finished photo:

I used two of Kim's textures, warmsun and yesteryear in Photoshop Elements.  I think I want to work some more on it and make the textures a little less subtle. I find that I've forgotten most of what I knew about layers in Elements so I need to read my book again. 


Here is the original:

I do have an upcoming Presentation Tuesday.  Not sure when I will post it--maybe next Tuesday if not before.

I love the idea of your photograph...silverware. The change from the original is very nice...love the original though also.

I really like the picture. Nice composition. The Pioneer Woman has free actions for Photoshop Elements that are really great. I use them all the time.

Thanks, Starling. I'll have to check out the Pioneer Woman.
