Texture Tuesday

The theme this week for Texture Tuesday is
A MOVIE eDition.

I take a drive to Concord all the time.
I remembered that I have a library of photos of

 is one of my favorite movies.  I'll watch any version, whether Katherine Hepburn plays Jo March or someone else.

I just love to hear the lines from the movie, see the costumes and scenes,
and get totally lost in the story.

I took advantage of Kim's special, and purchased her Ultimate Texture Bundle .  I loved the texture called INKED, it was perfect for the feeling I was trying to achieve.  I took one of my photos,

I set out to create afeel in the life of my photo.

I added the texture INKED and darkened the image several times to age it a bit.

I decided to not only use INKED as the texture to my photo, but to also use it for a background.  I placed the image on top of the texture INKED.  I used the adjustment layer LUMINOSITY, which gave it that olden days feel.

When I was satisfied with the levels of light, I added some corner embellishment. a quote and lightened the image for the final

I think Joe March would approve.

"He’s dull as powder, Meg.  Can’t you at least marry someone amusing?"

So, stop by Kim Klassen's cafe and visit all the beautiful photography and textures for this Movie eDition of Texture Tuesday.

Little Women has always been one of my favorite books. I love what you do with photographs Karen! This one could be an illustration from an old volume of Little Women:>)

Oh dearest, not only do you add texture to your photos, but to the thoughts of your heart. You take a subject and layer up layer of deep reflection, you pull me in. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INSPIRATION!!!! Anita

So glad that I followed your link. I have done that in the past and am never disappointed. Your home with texture is amazing. And rather nice that you started with the texture on the bottom. I loved Little Women and was so excited when we actually walked through LMA home....you could feel her presence. YOur frame is also really cool. I have so much to learn and frames is part of it. And to keep looking outside of the box.
I will visit your site often. smiles:sharon

I really loved your adaptation of the theme for Little Women. Especially the type font. Just a quick question. How did you get that font to appear in your blogger post (not the picture, but the actual post). Do you use Live Writer? I just wondered how you imported that font. I hate being limited to the fonts that Live Writer has. Thanks, peggy from PA bfdgirl@yahoo.com
