I ♥ Faces - Week 4 - “Texture” Photo Challenge!



I'm seriously thinking these wonderful ladies at iheartfaces are trying to ruin me!! I have spent HOURS deliberating over a photo to use. I have done three or four edits. I eventually chose this one and I'm still not sure it's the right choice! But in the end I figured Christmas is not so far since, that we have forgotten it yet :D

This is my beautiful nephew. This little man is my s-i-l's longed for child, and WOW - was he seriously worth waiting for! He is so adorable, so cuddly, so funny, so loving. He is the child of any mother's dreams :D

The texture I have used came from Pareeerica Textures on Flickr - she has some great Christmas ones :D. Then I used a whole mish-mash of actions & tweaks on actions! I know some were Coffee-shop and some were from Nelly Nero's PSE actions set. The predominant one of hers in the end was called 'think vintage'.

I must confess, I've found this really tough (did you get that!). I'm not sure my photography suits textures all that well - especially not on people. I can make it work with flowers & nature shots, but somehow it just doesn't seem to fit people all that well. I have a beautiful photograph I took of a friend's daughter. I was going to use it, but in the end I simply preferred it without the textures and the tweaking (I'll enter it when the time is right). Maybe it will come with practice, but I just had a real job finding a picture that would work well with a texture.

In the end I AM pleased with this, but boy ~ it was hard work!!

To see everyone else's beautiful creations this week check on over at I ♥ Faces.
