Quick! Before I miss it . . .

. . . the SUN!  the SUN!  no WIND!  I think I can finally quit whining about the weather.

So I quickly shot a teacup for Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday (that I am linking to BTW), slapped on a couple of textures (without any tweaking BTW) and I'm out the door! 


I used 'empty page' (my new favorite) at 100% opacity and multiply, 'luminous' at 81% opacity and overlay. 


This one with 'empty page' at 100% opacity and multiply again, 'luminous' at 100% opacity and soft light and another 'luminous' at 39% opacity and multiply and one more 'luminous' at 100% hue change.  Maybe I overdid the 'luminous' but my fingers are itching to play in the dirt!

So gotta go!  Check out all of Kim's teacups this week.  They will make you thirsty for a cuppa!

Okay.  Bye.

These are both really pretty. I love the first one with what looks like a brooch in it.
