Texture Tuesday for the first day of summer

DCF 1.0

This weeks challenge is to texturize people – these two do a pretty good job texturizing  themselves with dirt!  Brownie is always helpful so he joined in with the weeding. I removed a bit of the texture from man and dog, the heavier texture on the background blends the different elements and high-lights the central figures. The first layer of texture is “Granny’s cupboard” multiply 67%, the second is “chamomile” multiply 47%.

Happy Tuesday!

Love your post this week. I, too, am in the dirt and breaking my back bending over day after day. Love the helper. My Jack is always at my side. Lovely use of texture. Genie
