Of course there has to be a poppy for this week's free and easy edition of Texture Tuesday!
For this image I used two of Kim Klassen's textures, first "warmgrunge" in soft light at 55%. I masked the poppy and the poppy bud to remove the texture from them again. Then I layered with "kk_appreciate" in soft light at 75% and did a levels adjustment.
There are more and more poppies coming up in my garden beside the California poppies (which you can see as orange dots in this photo). I love all the different shades of light pink (almost white) to a rich dark red. It is beautiful and I find myself grabbing my camera all the time.
