Present {Texture Tuesday}

My mom got this silk scarf for her birthday last year. The scarf reflects light in a very nice way ... Adding just a slight glow to my mom's beautiful face. I see my mom smiling, as she opened this present from her sister... She was feeling the texture, admiring the colors, and trying it on...

This weeks theme in Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday  is Black and White. I desaturated the photo above, and added Music and Script 19 - stamp by Kim 4 times. I then layered two of Kim's textures (Present blendmode screen 72% and Framed blend mode luminosity 100%), and brushed some of the textures away from the middle, to achieve an old vintage photo- feeling.

You must live in the preset,
launch yourself on every wave,
find your eternity in each moment.

Henry David Thoreau

This photo is taken with my iPhone this afternoon. I have added different layers on it in Mextures, Alayer, Stackables, VintageScene and Afterlight-apps. Therafter I desaturated the photo and added Kim's textures Precious Pink luminosity 18% and Sonnetsoft luminosity 35 %.

And now, here I am ... Enjoying the present moment and the memories the picture of my mom's scarf has awakened ... Missing her and my dad, yet cherishing at the same time, knowing that they're doing fine - And that they actually are just a phone call away.

  1. Love the edit of your Mom's scarf - looks like a tapestry. And the vintage photo of the watch face is almost ethereal. Lovely really. What I like best about both of these photos is that they would make the start of a beautiful collage - adding texture and variety. This is my first visit to your blog and I'm enjoying the view!

  2. No talent in the photo department but these are quite different! Thanks for sharing Nina and have a great day!

  3. Your Mom's scarf is the perfect choice for this soft and dreamy B&W image. Lovely.
