Glorious Succulents

Texture Tuesday's entry uses Kim Klassen's "cracker jack" texture.  The original which is at the bottom of the post is a very poor image.  With the help of her texture using a linear burn blend and her "leaf" texture  -- lighten blend, the image just popped.  I did not even see the insect on the flower until I did this.  Thanks to Shadowhouse Creations for the mask/frame.

Every image is a new image with PS and textures!!
Hope everyone enjoyed the Labor Day week-end.


Here's the original
Not very exciting, huh?
Be sure to link over to Kim's  blog and view all the other entries.  On second thought, why not join the fun.  There are all levels of expertise participating in Texture Tuesday.  Many of us have taken Kim's expert classes, some of which are free and some for a fee.  I have learned so much from these classes.  If you don't know how to use textures, her classes are very enlightening!  Try it, you might become as addicted as we are.
