I decided it was time I tried my hand at using a textured background. I spent a long time looking for one that "jumped" out at me. Then I saw it. This perfect vintage, lettered-styled texture on FlickR. I immediately knew it was going to be used on a photograph of my Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. The old world feel, made it a match well suited to a breed whose heritage dates back to the 13th century.
After creating my little masterpieces, I found the "Poetic Winter Photo Challenge". I'm pretty excited as it starts today and this week's theme happens to be "Solitude". I think my photos lend well to that - especially Becky who is giving me the evil eye because the camera has my attention. It is interesting, how the same background takes on a cooler look with Kodee. You can feel her solitude on a chilly, winter day.
Then I discovered, it's my Lucky Friday, as participants of the "Poetic Winter Challenge" will be given a free textured background. Perfect timing - and seriously, I had no idea when edited my photographs!
Thank you to the generosity of the Angela Wolf - better known as "Joes Sistah" for permitting free use of her textured background today. Angela allows free non-commercial use of her designs and would like a credit link back to her FlickR account. Take a minute and go view Angela's use of texture on her photographs. Trust, me they are breathtaking - a must see!
