Texture Tuesday, Something Different

The challenge this week for Texture Tuesday  was "Back to School" and we needed to use two textures.  This was a tough one for me.  I didn't have time to take any themed pictures, but I did have pictures of my kids going off.

First I used the sketch filter and then a layer of Kim's reverse ttv on difference blending mode with the texture brushed off of the kids.  Then a layer of kimklassenlove on luminosity blending mode at 65%.   I pulled the borders inside of the black frame created with the ttv texture.  Again, I used a brush to take off some of the texture.  

My little one on the left is still home with me...sweet days.

I think there is a lot of potential for the sketch filter, I loved it.
There are some really neat back to school shots over at the cafe.  If you like new school supplies...hop on over!

  4. You lost me with the textures, filters, etc.....all I know is that the pics look really cool like that. Love it!

  5. Love the way they came out. I was playing around with those the other day.Can't remember what I used but it was fun playing around with the street photos of NYC.
    Ok just looked it up.....find edges on stylized. very cool

  6. Been missing you for tea, but love what you have done with these sketches. They are stunning. Love what you do with these filters, too.

  8. sweet
    time has a way of moving so quickly
    we started a tradition with our youngest (now graduated from college)
    I took a photo of him on his first day of school and another on the last day of that school year
    fun and where did the time go!
    Enjoy * Enjoy

  9. How cool. I love the posterized look of your photos. Makes me want to get a pack of magic markers out and color them!

    I also liked your tomato soup post. I've never had HOME MADE tomato soup (although some salsas are good enough to eat with a spoon!) Your recipe sounds yummy and what a treat to open a jar of soup in winter when the garden has withered in the ccccccold.


Thanks for taking the time to stop and visit!
