2B, Beyond Beyond, kim klassen, still life, texture

Oh how I love my Wacom tablet and brushes as well so thanks Kim for this tutorial.

But I am going to have to practice a lot before I get to Kim’s standard.
But I did have fun !!!!
Kim’s second challenge was to take her photo and create our take on it. In Lightroom I slid the saturation down and adjusted the split toning to give it a monochrome effect, I added one of Kim’s textures(3101)  a little heart brush I created and a lovely quote.
Here is my still life featuring one of the lovely bottles I was given for Christmas from my niece , you will see them a lot. I used the light by the front door again and made the image as light as possible. I added a texture (Waterfront 1).
Such a great tutorial I loved getting back to some texture love.

Using photography and your processing to convey emotion….. 

I don’t like having my photo taken I try but I just don’t do it… But I can use Mark… These 3 images were taken over the last 6 years, he doesn’t look any older…
I loved looking at these images and then processing them with new learnt techniques, tweaking in Lightroom and Photoshop, all of them were taken with a point and shoot ….
In my processing I tried to convey, at peace, relaxed and fun, eating churros and hot chocolate in Murcia, Spain was interesting….

I love the blue tint……

Venice our first trip…..
Messy churros !

Finished layout….I blended the main photograph into a paper by Anna Aspnes (weathered neutrals) added a png layer by Anna (12×12 Scriptease Learn No1) some more text (scriptease_learn) a caption frames and staples by Cottage Arts (Travelling Soul and ScrapTemplates28) finally a little journaling scrap by Katie Pertiet (free ColorInspiration061612)
once again a great tutorial and so much enjoyment going through the archives….

2B, digital scrapping, Friday, kim klassen

Firstly apologies for swapping my blog, I hope you followed me here…… again a work in progress.. Continuing in my layout plan of cataloging all 2B prompts ..
We have reached Day 22, focusing and shooting outside,  and this is where my Friday find comes in… A place, Coleton Fishacre in South Devon.
Once the Summer home of the D’Oyly Carte family those of the Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado fame….
Maintained now by The National Trust it is a haven, a most beautiful house and the garden at this time of the year is sublime…

Here is my layout…

And I also did a black and white shot of the weather vane,,,,
