Texture Tuesday - 2-For eDition


Kim has asked us to use two of her textures for today's Texture Tuesday.....Spring is springing up all over.  My ginko tree is sprouting new leaves as is the liquidambar in the front yard.  The sycamore tree is the true harbinger of spring as 
far as trees go.  It is the first to lose its leaves in fall and the first to sprout new leaves in the spring.  When I see that happening 
I know the weather is going to warm up.  Our 
temperatures here at the beach have been consistently in the mid to high '60s for the past few weeks.  Even the lows are low '60s.  Yay.......and the sun is shining....double yay!
I found these lovely ranuculus at the grocery store and could not pass them by.
I took this shot "from above" trying to incorporate some of our lessons from Kim Klassen's Beyond Layers 2.

I used one layer of "Subtlely Yours" and three layers of "1808" to get the soft dreamy look I like.  Click below to see more "2-fors".

Love those flowers and had never seen them before until today. The grocery store had some potted ones, which I should have purchased. Love your photo of them and the textures you used.

Happy Tuesday
