5.17.11 ~ 137/365

17 May

Its been a few weeks since I’ve participated in Texture Tuesday, but with this week’s theme being “vintage”, I knew I had to.
I bought these teacups at a thrift store some time ago with the hopes of creating this picture, and I was glad to be able to finally dig them out to use them. I just love the mod design on them and the colors are perfect! (And now that I got the picture I wanted, I can break them up to make the mosaic I had in mind!)

I also must add that if you do try to re-create this picture at home, do yourself a favor and do it outside….lets just say thank goodness the camera was a few feet away…..
Oh, and good luck getting it with just one image…..this is a composite of a few.

Here’s the recipe:
Layer 1- Photo
Layer 2- Grey Day Stone texture, Color burn, 74% opacity
Layer 3- Dusty Rose texture, Multiply, 35% opacity
Layer 4- Silent Night texture, Soft Light, 87% opacity
Layer 5- Serendipity texture, Darker Color, 59% opacity

Did I go a little overkill with the textures? Probably, but I was trying to make it look vintage!

See the other vintage textures!
