My favourite day! Texture Tuesday!! Today everyone voted on a subject and Black and White with a Touch of Colour was the winner.
I’m “grandparenting” this week, so I’m at my daughter’s home. As I lay in bed this morning (briefly, I might add, since little ones were soon joining me), I kept looking at this North-facing window with the white curtains. Creative thoughts started to flow.
After breakfast, when the two oldest were off to school, and the 3 year old had had breakfast, my mind turned to TT.
I thought about the lovely sedum that I got for Mother’s Day and went around the house looking for props. A lovely pot, a white table, and an off-white ball seemed to be the perfect combination. It’s a simple scene but that’s what works for me.
Even though there are technically four items, I see three, since the plant and the pot become one. And odd numbers are always a safe bet when designing anything.
I used a technique that Kim taught us using gradients to reveal some colour in the plant. Then I brushed away some of the gradient on the ball to reveal a slight, slight, bit of green to support the theme.
Lastly, one layer of kk_3003 on soft light was the final touch.
I’m totally crushing on this… it’s amazing what a fresh perspective can do.
Well, I gotta go! It’s time to play Hungry Hippo!
