Beyond Layers Day 64 : Warmth and Light
In today's lesson, Kim gave us some options for masking out the texture from a section of the image. In this case, I erased some of the texture from the old milk bottle vase. I followed Kim's recipe pretty faithfully, but added an additional layer of texture.
I used two of Kim Klassen's lovely textures : Jay and Kristin.
Here's my original photo straight out of the camera, taken in natural, but diffused light earlier this fall. I had actually purchased the bouquet of dried milkweeds at Farmer's Market one day. After that was I seeing dried milkweed pods everywhere ... I wouldn't mind at all if they grew in my yard. This is what monarch butterfly caterpillars live on.
