Quiet on the Set!

This week's Texture Tuesday challenge is to pick any movie or your favorite movie.  The photo has to go along with the title - combine it with any of Kim's textures. 

The movie I chose is "On the Waterfront".  I took the photo in the beautiful city of Rovinj, Croatia.  I used Kim's new texture "Just Stitched" and my own texture "Mashed Potatoes"; added a camera lens distortion vignette and called it done!


This challenge was so much fun, I kept going.  Being an art quilter, the movie "How To Make An American Quilt" starring Winona Ryder seemed appropriate. "Hyperbolic Paraboloid" is one of the first quilts I ever designed.  I made it in 2001.  The seams are all straight lines even though the overall impression is that of curves.  It measures 50"W x 50"L.

stunning "On the Waterfront" - - I love how you've combined the two textures to give the image almost painted quality. Wow

your waterfront is so pretty, the photo is a beauty in itself and the added textures make it even more stunning.

thanks for stopping by at my TT-post (#15) If you have a chance do see 'Himalaya', that movie is surely touching.

What a beautiful shot. I bet it's even more beautiful in person. I love the texture you chose, it gave it such an old canvas feel to it.

Wonderful.

Pat-I really like the feeling and mood the photo is expressing, I feel like I could just jump right in there. Nice job.

Hyperbolic indeed!
This word ought to be turned into an adjective of approbation.
The picturebook water scene turned into a storybook backdrop for a movie. So inventive.
