Happy Texture Tuesday

I hope this Tuesday finds everyone full of the joys of . . . . . .whatever season it is for you :-))

This week at kimklassencafe it's a free theme so we get to choose the textures and subject.

This is my entry today, the very pretty flowers of the Cordyline tree which are flowering now and looking so lovely.

So here are my "Musical Bells"




I used two textures (Soft and Sanded Shakespeare Sonnet and Art of Joy) and a lot of layers plus some tweaky bits to get the look I wanted. Mind you that sounds as though I knew what I wanted when I started . . . .I didn't I just had a vague impression ,the rest just evolved.




I've done this screen snapshot of the finished layers . . . . . . .someone might find it interesting or helpful.


















I'm looking forward to having a good look around what you've all produced later . . but at the moment breakfast is calling and I'm listening .

Have a good day everyone, Teresa xx :-)

  17. Teresa, this is stunning. I'm so glad to know that, like me, you don't always know what you want the finished product to be. Mine just sort of take on a life of their own.
