Summer

Today I learned a new trick -- how to outline a font in PSE.  Head on over to Geri's blog for a tutorial.  She also has a tutorial for Photoshop.  Thanks, Geri!!
I took this shot in the mall.  I'm always smitten by bright colors and this display at Crate & Barrel really caught my eye.
Next step was to add my text and create the outline
Then I worked Geri's "magic"
Finally I added a layer of Kim's "fall in" on color burn @ 100% and a layer of Kim's "stained linen" on soft light at 57% to get this final image.  They warmed the image up quite a bit.
This is my entry for Kim's Texture Tuesday this week.  There will be lots more beautiful entries so be sure to visit her site to see them all.
