Texture Tuesday – A New Online Home

Lets Celebrate

Hello my sweet friends,

Welcome to my new space…..
If I could.. I’d have you all over to celebrate….
We would have some cake and a cuppa …. oh and diet coke of course…

There’s so much going on.. behind the scenes…. around here….It’s crazy… but crazy good.
I can’t wait to reveal all. But the new site is definitely part of the news…..

I’m so in LOVE with it ….
I’ve been dreaming this for some time…. It’s much more than a pretty face.
The new classroom experience is going to be transformative.
I do ask that you are patient…. the transition is a work in progress. But it will be worth it.

Which brings me to…. Yes, registration for Start to Finish is now open…. 
Pop over here for all the details.

My cake photos were taken for Well-Dressed Cakes…..an talented cake designer and decorator. I had the privilege of spending two days taking pictures of her gorgeous cakes.
Lots more photo shoots ahead….
Really exciting…..

Today’s Recipe

I processed the images in LR using a new preset called TrueColor. (31 day-ers).
I added a layer of subtly yours at soft light 100%… for a light airy touch.

Here’s a triptych of her more formal designs…. How does she do it?

Same Photo…..2 different presets

Happy TT.

Oh my… I just got off the loveliest connect with the Be Still group!! So good to chat with such an amazing group….of genuine creatives….. 

Thank you all so much! My oh my…..I needed that.

::

I’m afraid my post is going to be short and sweet…. and I will definitely be back here with more photos of these beautiful hydrangeas I found at Safeway!! Oh my gosh… sooo pretty……

They came in 3′s….but because my day was cut short…. I only had time for a few quick photos….and for some reason…it seems a single flower is almost always right…

I thought I’d share a few different process versions… using presets that are part of my 31 Days class….Honestly… I love all 3 looks…… But you can’t go too wrong with hydrangeas….  so much to love.

With that said… the thing I may love most about this photo ….. the way the letters on the linen peek through the glass bottle…..  

‘happy sigh’…….

Today’s Uptop Recipe

Toned and cropped in LR…. then I applied my new preset, Lightly 2. (part of the 31 days class content)

Next Photoshop for a touch of texture…..One layer of achieve at soft light, 100% opacity…. then a hue/sat adjustment layer, clipped to the texture to remove a little yellow…. and that was that….

Happy TT.

Hello lovelies… How are you? I hope this post finds you well. I have a message for you…. today. It’s short and sweet……

Something good is about to happen……

Sit with this thought… imagine it… believe it….. take it with you today……

Today’s Recipe

Toned and cropped in LR…. then I applied my new preset, Quiet Dream…..
It may possibly be a new preset for a certain class I’m running…. just sayin….. 

Into Photoshop for a touch of texture…..both at multiply 40% opacity. I also added a hue/sat adjustment layer and clipped it to the texture to reduce the yellow.

The top image is textured with last week’s achieve and the second is textured with today’s freebie, quiet…..using the same recipe for both…..

Today’s freebie: Quiet
