It's the Little Things...

This week's Texture Tuesday challenge is to use one of Kim Klassen's textures with any photo.  The theme is "it's the little things".

I store buttons in vintage blue Ball jars.  I chose Kim's "scratched magic" texture, duplicated it several times, changed the blending mode and levels.

Nice idea with the buttons. I would love to try that texture but, I am not sure how to get Photoshop to load a zip file. Yes, I took the photo of the little girl in the mirror. Thanks for stopping by!

Wow - what a contrast between the "Before & After" images!!! Beautiful editing work -- this one should be enlarged, framed and hung in your sewing room/craft room :)

Hi, you had dropped by my textures posting so I thought I would take a peek at yours. What a HUGE difference your textures made...it is so awesome, really a fun fun photo. You obviously have fun with textures after looking at your blog, your header photo and all the texturizing you have done to make your blog so colorful and fun. LOVE IT! I noted your felting...I have a daughter who loves to felt, she can't do a lot as her time is limited, but she does have fun with the colors and coming up with ideas. I will have to share your blog with her. Thanks..Sharon
