The Process!

Barely There
The Process
"Learning is the beginning of wealth. Learning is the beginning of health. Learning is the beginning of spirituality. Searching and learning is where the miracle process all begins."~Jim Rohn~ 
How much milage can I get out of these roses is the question? For three days now I have been enamored with this simple bucket of roses, just can't seem to get enough of them. Textures are working like magic inspiring me to learn more and more. I can tell you that I used a Kim Klassen's texture on the above photos but I really can't give you a recipe for the end result. 
I just start playing with the artistic filters and somehow loose myself in time, not always with the greatest results, but a learning experience none the less. 
The first photo may seem like a bucket of mush to some but I loved that it is barely there in a washed out sort of way. The second photo more defined trying for a watercolor effect, I used the paint daubs filter on this one adjusting the brushes several times. Also used the impressionistic brush tool on the background. 
Loooove those impressionists!!!
Miracles every day no matter how small. 
Find a bucket full yourself, now don't step in it, who knows where the learning experience will bring you!

Pin It!

This is so refreshingly different.

These are some really interesting effects, love the first one with just a hint of pastel colour and the texture is lovely!
I'm loving playing with textures lately too!
