The Texture Touch


This is what I call "Country Skyscrapers"! We saw a lot of these on your recent road trip across the American Plains.

  1. To give the sky a lovely shade of aqua drop and drag the sometimes cool texture over your image

  3. To add a vintage appeal drop on the wanderlust overlay #3
  4. Blend this layer on overlay and reduce the opacity to 50%

  8. I think you could be right about the barn collapsing behind the trees, but that silo still makes for a great subject... love the windmill, too! Wouldn't mind exploring the trees to find the barn if it wasn't so grown over... I don't get along w/ ticks & chiggers too well! LoL!

    Thanks so much for joining, Kristy! =)

    1. Me either Tricia, I encountered chiggers once at my cousin's farm when I was kid. Count me out on itchy bites.
