Hearts with Texture

Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday is all about love - two days before Valentine's Day that's very appropriate. I played with some heart buttons that I recently re-discovered when I was making Valentine's cards.


After a levels adjustment I layered the photo with Kim's texture "she loves you yeah" in blending mode soft light at 55%; then I added one of her newer textures "kk_minus 43" in soft light at 75%; typed the text and in a final step added an older texture "warmvignette" (one of my favorites) in soft light at 66%. Quite surprising how I always loved soft light the best.

I like the pictures of your hearts. But as the song says I left my heart in San Francisco – I lived there for almost 9 years and left and never went back since 1970. Well, we are going back in the spring for a week – I know a lot will have changed, but not the Golden Gate Bridge. Your photos are superb.

Lovely shot. Love how something as simple as buttons can become so pretty with the right treatment. Great job.

Love the perspective and depth of field in your shot! Thanks for the mini-tutorial too. I also tend to gravitate to soft light for blending options.

Beautiful! I love the shallow depth of field. (And I like soft light blend mode, too.)

Very cute idea! Love the texture of wood with the buttons. Visiting from TT! Happy Valentine's!

This is delightful, Carola, especially with the shadows. :)
