Texture Tuesday

Texture Tuesday -

Fuschia Sarah's Delta.



The texture challenge this week on Kim Klassens blog is to use her fabulous 'simplicity' texture.

This is a completely new challenge for me and sooooo out of my comfort zone as I'm only just learning what textures are all about but was inspired to have a go by some of the other entries.
I stuck to using just the Simplicity texture here as I have a tendency to overdo things if I try to include too many steps. All I did after that was reduce the opacity a teeny amount.

Kims blog is a new one for me - I just happened upon a link on Artistically Amys blog and spent ages there going through the rest of Kims content before deciding to take part in the challenge and I must say I luuuuurve this texture and am quite chuffed with how it's transformed my boring fuschia image.
