Texture Tuesday...dawg days of summer

16



I've often wondered if it would be possible to successfully use one of
Kim Klassen's textures over an image that I shot with an iPhone app,
so for this week's Texture Tuesday challenge,  look down,  I decided to go ahead and try it.
Tell me what you think.


My dawg gal doesn't like the heat (she's got that whole collie fur coat thing goin' on)
so its fairly easy to find her
being quiet in the shade of the umbrella, giving me  * that look *


Originals were shot with Hipstamatic.  I loved the black and white, high contrast tones
but the plain white frames just had to go.
I chose two of Kim's square textures that had "frames" instead ...
above, I used 'printed'  and below,  'heartfelt' ...


awwwwww, thanks bestie ...

  7. the beauty of anything seen on screen is that the dpi can only ever be 72 (PC) or 96 (Mac) so there really isn't much detail lost. consequently these two look just as "you" as something taken with a much larger display. and of course your subject matter is pretty durned awesome too! tummy tickles to quinn I hope she's feeling a bit less itchy. xo
