OK, so how much fun can one person have with some brushes and some Textures?!!!
First I had a play with Tea Stain 1 brushes from Creative Victorian Designs and managed to get a nice subtle effect which, when paired with a couple of 'artistic' filters, gave an image I really liked.
Then I received Kim Klassen's email and thought I'd have a go on this photo with those! I used Granny's Cupboard and Greydaystone, as well as 3 layers of the photo, 2 B&W and one coloured, plus a whole range of blending modes, LOL, and absolutely love the effect I got there too! I resisted the temptation to brighten up the photo, as when Dd1 went on this beach hack, when they returned home, the clouds were really black, and they did get wet...from the rain as well as splashing in the sea, LOL :)
Thanks Netta of CVD & Kim Klassen for your inspiration!!!
