A Pop of Colour...

Yesterday, while driving to my daughter-in-law's place, I passed this beautiful church and it immediately reminded me of Kim's challenge for this week's Texture Tuesday, 'a pop of colour'. Fortunately I had brought my camera along with me because I knew I'd be driving along country roads and I planned to get some barn shots on my way home, but when I saw this wonderful bright red door on the church I knew it was perfect for for the challenge.  I created the collage in Lightroom, and then added a subtle layer of Kim's texture, 'stamped' using a soft light blend mode to give it a cool, soft look. I used a layer mask and brushed the texture off of the white frame and sashing of the collage, as well as the red door so that the wonderful colour could 'pop'.

This photo is being linked to Our World Tuesday, Texture Tuesday and Sweet Shot Tuesday.

    1. Thank you Dana. It's funny because I've driven past this church many times, but with Kim's challenge in mind and my camera in the car I see the world differently.

    1. Thanks Cathy. What a lovely idea. It makes me wonder if I could contact the church and offer the image to them. They could have it printed on cards to use for get well cards, etc... You've got me thinking of a good idea for a 'random act of kindness'...
