12 Days of Textures: Days 1 & 2

Happy to be sick-free as I opened the week, but I faced quite a lot of assignments as well as chores / errands for the house, so I didn't have much time to update all of my blogs.

Kim Klassen's "12 Days of Textures" just started - something I love to do, and since she is giving away 12 different textures everyday, I decided to use pictures I took the day I received the texture download link thru my e-mail. Here are the first two of twelve textures:

First texture was Lilly, and I just made a quick and easy edit to add textures to this image. I just added a layer of Lilly blended to Multiply at 100%, gave it a pass of the National Geographic script followed by a pass of Manny Librodo sharpening script.

Annabelle is today's texture, and I used a picture of a cocoon I took from our garden this morning (before the rain fell). I basically used the same recipe as the first one, but for this I added two layers of the Annabelle texture - one I blended to Soft Light at 100%, the other I blended to Screen at 40%.
