Sugar and . . . . . .more sugar

At my favourite cafe they have the little sugar sachets in a stainless steel pot which caught my eye the other day as the sun was shining on them . I had my camera with me so was able to snap away.

I used Kim's "poetic" texture and then converted it to b/w and selectively added a little colour back to the sugar sachets. I think I added a "magic" texture as an edging but I didn't make a note of it . . . . :-(

"Sugar and . . . ."

I used the texture at soft light 100% and mutiply 34%.

I'll be posting this at    kimklassencafe and I'm looking forward to seeing some lovely work . . .

It's blowing a gale . . . literally . . . . as I write this . . the chimney is whistling and the shutters are rattling . . ..but I picked my first narcissus toady . . .oh the fragrance :-)

  1. Looks beautiful! I love the b&w and the little color on top of it...

  2. I like the edit with a bit of color added back in.

  3. Love the bleached out effect Teresa, I hope things have died down there for you now!

  4. Very nicely done! Love the little touch of color and the softness of the edges :)

  5. I love seeing the world through your eyes, Teresa. It's amazing how beautiful sugar packets can be!!!!

  6. Beautiful image, love how you've made something ordinary so special. Great use of texture.
