Sorry it’s been such a long time since our last post! We’ve both been busy with more important things like holidays:-) I have spent a lovely 10 days on the tiny Pacific Island of Niue, it’s such a relaxing and laid back kind of place and I’d love to return some day. I took lots of photos but most didn’t do the place justice and most aren’t really suitable for textures so you may not see them here, but if you picture coconut palms, very clear water, rock pools to snorkel or swim in and whales that you can see from the shore you’ll get an idea of what Niue is like.
I was hunting for something to process the other day when I came across this rose image. It’s a nice enough photo untextured but with the addition of just one texture the mood and look have been changed completely. I could have added softer textures and used a different blending mode and got a totally different feel, this is what I love about textures.

These Clair Matin roses are looking particularly beautiful in the garden at the moment in their second flush of flowers for the season so I couldn’t resist picking a few for some photos and also to bring some of their colour and fragrance indoors.
