Tuesday’s Texture Challenge (Part 8)

I am so happy to give away another FREE texture today and offer others to take my challenge. Eight weeks flew by in the blink of an eye! Today I’m sharing a simple photo I took of the back of a regular iron bar stool. I knew the braided design would work as a layer or overlay in time.

Sue Henry took this weeks challenge (I sent her over the texture I was planning on using a little early) and she created this work of art with it. I just love it! I really thought she did an “H” for “Heather”, but she said it was for “Henry”. Shoot, I can still believe it is intended to be for “Heather” right? Well, I’m going to! ๐Ÿ™‚ Getting back to Sue’s creation. Not only did she use the texture as an overlay to add a colored background to a simple black letter “H” photograph taken of a tombstone…but she also layered a pretty flower in the bottom corner from another one of her own photographs. That flower completes the pretty and artsy photo…don’t you think? I do! Thanks Sue! Ironic because I myself used the braided texture to add a background to my sample. Great minds think alike-I guess!

Now…for my sample. It’s from one of the photos of Lucy in my post yesterday. The differences are I converted it to black and white and added the braided texture as a background and then placed another texture I found free on Flickr over the top at a very low opacity (I think 15 or so).

  1. I always look forward to your “Tuesday Texture Challenges” — fun, fun!

    I love the desaturated, monochromatic look of your piece. Very nice; so appropriate with your wonderful bird image. Isn’t it fascinating how the same texture can take on an entirely new personality!

    Wouldn’t it be awesome if others reading your blog would send you examples of how they incorporate your textures!

  2. Heather,

    I don’t have the hang of the texture thing yet but I’ll work on it.

  3. wow – i’m so impressed w/ sue’s creation!! that is a work of art!!

    love what you did with lucy!

    i hope the texture challenge will catch on with others!

    I was wracking my brain but couldn’t think of what to use this one with – sorry. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
