For TT this week, we are to use the prompt “open” and use at least one of Kim’s texture layers…

I used a photo of some white roses opening for the prompt, and like my pal Johanna, I found an appropriate quote, using the word “open”.

Who’d have thought Ben Franklin would say that? Lol! (Keep your eyes wide open before marriage, half shut afterwards…)

I used Kim’s confidence [colour burn @100%, then copied with multiply @21%]

Then I took the paper texture evolve_2 [multiply @100% & copied with colour burn @100%]

I used a mask on the last layer to remove some of the texture from the central rose…

Lots of inspiring photos to be found HERE.

    WELL…what I find quite ironic about that quote from Benny boy is that HE invented BI-FOCALS!!! haha. Awesome photo and texture work ๐Ÿ™‚

    love how you edited the rose… (could be one of my bridal bouquet… well, almost 30 years ago, that is… some half shut eye moments since then;) well, not complaining…)

    Hi Rosie,

    Nice to catch up, I have been thinking about you too, can see you love your digital explorations, lovely, they are a great escape for me as well although I tend to do my own thing. The weather is a bit dull today but has been very clear and sharp the last couple of days just right for finding the light – puts me in photo mode and dreaming of visiting the coast in the spring.

      Yes, your photography is far more advanced than mine… I have a week off soon, so I shall practise taking shots of our surroundings. We’re just going to Par for a few days, but it’ll be wonderful just to get away from home for once! I’m quite excited!! Roll on the Spring too! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Wow Rosie – is this you? What a change of direction. I’ve not been doing any blogging for months but am back with a new challenge to myself – to do with the craft but not paper! lol! Hope you have a good year my friend! BB x

    Beautiful Rosie! I may not much be around in comments lately, but I still am here! Hope you’re doing fine dear!

  8. More gorgeous white roses! I love the Franklin quote! Too true!

    I’m off to add your new blog link to my blogroll. I shall leave your old one in place unless and until you tell me to remove it. XOXO
