Texture Tuesday - Lavender & Green

I love that color combination, lavender and green. When I was first starting to plan my wedding, I looked at pages and pages of color combinations until they all blurred together. Lavender has been my favorite color since I was 12, so I knew I wanted that for one of my wedding colors. I ended up going with a combination that is not used often, but looks much better than I expected: red and lavender.

Anyway, for today's texture challenge for Kim Klassen, we were supposed to use her new texture, crackerjack. I also used a bokeh texture from Shadowhouse Creations.

You can see the SOOC shot here.

Here are my layers:

I had the bokeh layer, then a warmer duplicate of the background, then a slight desaturation, then the crackerjack texture, and then a soft vignette. I had also done a Gaussian blur on the crackerjack texture.

I love how you include your layers. One of these days, I'm going to figure out how to do that. Looks good, Amy!
