Thoughtful Thursday & The August Break

















My beautiful hibiscus cropped slightly with hue & saturation adjustments, layered with Kim Klassen's 'scripted edges' texture with some brushes added for additional texture.

Here's the original.















Happy Thursday and Happy August Break!

I need to visit every day! I have a shortcut on my desktop but forgot about it! Your original hibiscus blossom is amazing on its own...and your textured version is fabulous.

Thanks so much everyone! It is definitely a learning process but oh so fun!

Thank you for visiting my blog and my experiments with Kim's Scripted Edges. Your hibiscus post inspired my play! Answering your question: I used Color Burn instead of Hue/Saturation adjustments on the first image. Thanks again for commmenting.
