Texture Tuesday....Dream-Like Edition...

This week on Texture Tuesday, Kim challenged us
to create a wispy, dream-like photo.

I used a photo of a water lily, I took on a water hazard, at a golf course.
It was a warm sunny day, in Indian Wells, CA.

I used three of Kim's textures:
Sybil, Leslie and Violet.
Then, I softly removed a bit of the textures from the lily,
and the water line.

I desaturated  the background copy, to tone down the bright 
pink of the lily, and the brightness of the leaves.

It all softened the original, quite a bit,
and gave it a dreamy, painterly feeling.

Be sure to visit Kim's web site, for more
