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!

Isn’t it always fun to have a fresh perspective in a new place. Beautiful setting and love the tones in this, the Mother’s Day present is pretty impressive also. Enjoy the grands.
Barb the light is gorgeous on this one, what a great place to capture the lovely softness. Beautifully done, and as always, Kim teaches us so many beautiful ways to make our photos become more lovely!
Love, love, love it! The story makes the photo that much more enjoyable!
