Thanksgiving

I try to start each day with gratitude for another day, another opportunity, for all I'm blessed with, but at this time of year I'm especially grateful for friends, family, health and abundance. 

I'm linking to Texture Tuesday today with my interpretation of the Thanksgiving holidays.  For this image I used a layer of Kim's "Leaf" and a layer of one of her other textures.  Sorry I can't remember which.   I also used Kim's 
Darklight preset.  I added a Topaz filter.  I love playing with textures and filters as I'm never sure  what will turn up in the final result.  I like how this makes the pears look like they have been gold leafed. I used the same textures and different filters below on this image.
I wish you all a beautiful Thanksgiving.

I really love the top one that looks like they are gold leafed - I actually thought they were. Beautiful and rich looking. I haven't played in Topaz for a while...hope to after the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving Marilyn!!

I think it is amazing that we offer up gratitude every day. We do ours with the kids at bedtime. :)

Happy Thanksgiving!
