Texture Tuesday - Fab Free Easy Edition

June 13, 2011

I am joining in Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday... 

Old barns just draw me in....  Beautiful time worn pieces of art.

Picture taken at NaDa Farms.

(Kim Klassen's Cinnamon Soft Light 40% - KK Stained Linen Darken 49%)

There is something so beautiful about old metal gates, wooden fence posts and rusty wire.

Picture taken at a local field leading up to an old barn.

Have a beautiful day, dear friends.

Fabulous work. Barns are 'time worn pieces of art' - especially for a true artist.

The barn is really beautiful and your texture work is gorgeous. You don't see many barns where I live, so I am pleased to see yours.

Sheila,
I love what you are doing with the Kim Klassen textures. Of course, it is all Greek to me! Some day...maybe some day, I will learn to use an SLR! And then Photoshop, though I do have Elements (and don't quite understand it!). The barn is so beautiful. You have changed barns and roosters for me forever! After all, I grew up in South Dakota. I should start honoring their beauty!
Hugs,
Suz
