Naturally...

The theme for Texture Tuesday is "natural".  Both photos were edited in Photoshop Elements 10.

This photo of natural bristle brushes in my studio has no texture added.  Frame created using layer adjustments; brushes and blending modes.

My husband found this bird's nest in a bush in our yard - can't get more natural than that!  Kim's new texture "Now" added.  I think I should have removed more of the texture from the bird's next - what do you think?

I think the texture work on the nest looks great. I also have to say that I am drawn to your paintbrush picture. Very cool!

Peace!

I love them both! Funny how it was hard for me to choose something 'natural'. You were really able to interpret it from your artist's perspective. Beautiful work.

I enjoyed these, especially the first picture, but I missed Truly. Wouldn't you say he was a natural?

These are both great.
I think the texture on the bird's nest is just right.

Love the contrasts in textures of the Irish oatmeal can and the natural bristle brushes. Great neutrals and great photos!
