Beyond Layers Day 100 : Cuppa Challenge


For today's lesson, Kim challenged us to make or take a shot composed with a cup, a book and 1 other accessory of our choosing.   We also were to include her recommended textures, offered with this lesson.  I picked Jerry Apps' Barns of Wisconsin book, the red barn mug, and the Red Barn Quilt (Raspberry Cordial at my house).  I thought these 3 items made a nice trio.

Here's the simple photo processing :
Layer 1) Photo cropped and straightened.
Layer 2) Kim's Calamity Texture - Multiply blend mode at 100% opacity
Layer 3) Copy Layer 2 - Soft Light blend mode at 43%
Layer 4) Kim's Chaos Texture - Multiply blend mode at 40%
Layer 5) Color Boost and Vignette

Here's a slightly wider shot, showing more of the book cover.
