Anything Goes

This week's Texture Tuesday challenge is to combine one of Kim's textures with any photo.  I took this photo in the beautiful walled city of Dubrovnic in Croatia.  There is no vehicle traffic in the old city.  The are steep stairways that lead up several levels of streets encircling the city and ultimately to the walkway around the perimeter of the city.  The views are breathtaking - it overlooks the sea.

This was a lucky photo.  My husband and I walked up a few levels and stopped to look around.  A young woman and her boyfriend stopped at the top of the stairs to have a smoke.  I just aimed my camera and took a photo.   I had no idea of what I had captured until later.

I added Kim's "Cool Grunge" texture.  The frame is from Coffee Shop blog.

Hi Pat! Oh I just love this! It is perfection! And it really does have a old world "air" about it, if that makes sense? The frame is gorgeous around it.

I'm guessing in the post below that you are making a banner?? Whatever it is, it's going to be pretty! I'm loving anything with the scrabble letters!

Sandy said...

that should have read "an" old world air about it (sorry)

can't wait to see what you are making!
