I used to call this image "wooden snake" after I had discovered this branch with the icicle many years ago close to my home in Germany. Now with all the textures that are available, I can finally play with it. And since we are having a cold spell here (yes, even California can get pretty cold - after all, I'm not living in Palm Springs) I though a photo with a nice icicle was appropriate.
I layered the photo (an original slide that I scanned and then kept in Lightroom) with Kim's texture "kk_coolgrunge" and blended it in soft light at 100%. Then I added the text - that's it, that's all!
