As some of my blogging friends know my daughter Jo has left on her big adventure to New Zealand. For the month before her departure she gave up her flat and moved back in with us to save money.  This of course threw routines out of the window, another person to use the bathroom, meals to be cooked for 3 not 2 and so on. I loved having her with us but of course it made the parting worse as I miss her a lot.  My blogging and digital scrapping has suffered and I’m finding it quite difficult getting back in the swing, So new routines have to be made slowly but surely.

So to Texture Tuesday, the theme is yellow and I had a mini shoot with sunflowers taken from Jo’s thank you bouquet from her work colleagues. I had to let them decay slightly of course !!!!

Here is the original photo SOOC.
After processing in Lightroom.

The finished photograph.

 I added two layers of Kim’s Waterfront 18 one at soft light 78% and one at multiply 70 %.

  1. Your texture edit is so pleasing. Wonderful! I wish your daughter all the best on her adventure. My daughter got married in March and moved about 1500 miles away. I'm happy for her but boy, do I miss her 🙂

  3. Lovely photos,Viv. I'm so impressed by how you can manipulate them with all this post-shot wizardry. I definitely need to investigate some of that. Sorry to hear about missing your daughter. It's tough being a mum sometimes. My little man's only 8, but I know that his time to fly the nest will soon come round, and I can imagine what a wrench it will be when he does. All the best, Bonny
