Last week Kim gave us a heads up about this week’s theme for Texture Tuesday saying it would whatever comes to mind based on the word vintage. My first thought was old cars. I wouldn’t be my father’s daughter if I thought of lace hankies now would I? :)
I did not get any new pics of old cars but I did dig out one that I took a while back. Here’s that lovely old thing after running a vintage action and applying one of Kim’s new magic textures as well as her history texture. I love the crackly effect the magic texture gives.
This one I took at one of my favorite restaurants over the weekend. I think the chairs are a bit vintagy, don’t you? This was after a MAJOR desaturation, addition of another of Kim’s magic textures, then I added a sepia layer and brushed over the chairs to bring some red back.
Lastly, and what turned out to be my favorite of the set is this old sewing machine that I found in one of the yarn stores I visited over the weekend. I converted it to black and white and added one of Kim’s really extreme grungy type textures and that was it. I really love what the texture did, really, really love it!
I’m looking forward to seeing what others have posted. Go check it out:
