The tenacity of Ivy…

For this week’s Texture Tuesday, hosted by Kim Klassen , we are to use at least one layer of any of Kim’s textures. I have used music_lovin’:

Method: Copy + soft light; Music_lovin’ in colour burn mode; then copied with linear burn mode, copied again and erased the texture from the top leaf.

I took the photo with my Samsung Monte mobile phone. It’s the dead ivy on our old rotting garden shed! It’s still tenaciously clinging to the wood, even though it’s been dead for nearly a year…

    You are enjoying doing the digital art, arn’t you? …..and no paint on your hands and clothes !!!

    • I am in deed Pam! I still feel we are on the brink of moving, so I am reluctant to get the messy stuff out again! It’s quietly boxed and neatly stacked for now… And me, I have clean hands, as you say!! 😉

  6. Very nice! I was toying with an Ivy photo this week too, but couldn’t find a texture and application that I felt did it justice. I HATE being proven wrong 🙂 This is just lovely!


  7. Lovely work!
