"Hydrangeas in My Kitchen"



I treated myself to these flowers from Trader Joe's today. I grabbed them at the last minute. I never splurge, but I'm glad I did today.

Here's how I processed the photo of my hydrangea...
Florabella textures...
Patina (cool) overlay blending mode 45% opacity
Memory (cool) overlay 28%
Cappuccino overlay 64%
Milk and Honey screen blending mode 31%




This version is similar to the first... I just changed the hue/saturation and changed the
Milk and Honey texture to screen overlay at 23%

Beautiful. I believe you are giving Shana a run for her money :) I finally got mine loaded but still have not really played that much. You are totally making me want to though!

Beautiful! Hopefully I don't make myself sound like an idiot here, but where do you get Florabella textures? I am just learning Photoshop Elements 7 and have used 2 other photo shops in the past.

It's all a learning process..... but I'm open to some new pointers.

Thanks a bunch.

The post-processed photos match the texture of your blog perfectly, that it's hard to tell where the photo ends and the blog begins!

I have been thinking about buying these actions for my photoshop program. These photos are really pushing me toward making the purchase...and now I want to go out and buy hydrangeas (did I spell that right?) -LOL!

Also, I love that I found this blog (through my friends blog). I love that you love God. It will be awesome getting to know you through this webpage.
