Then I ate the cake.
Then I played with the photo. Brightened it, desaturated it a LOT, then brushed over the flower on the cup and the cake to bring back some of the color, texturized it with Kim’s “chamomile” and “major grunge” textures and lastly brushed over the tea cup and cake to eliminate some of the texture there and viola!
Remember, you can click on the photo to view it larger. And also remember that you can go to Kim’s website and check out the other lovely texture photos there. And you can enter your own photo. And if you don’t know how Kim will teach you, she rocks!
