Texture Tuesday . . . From The Garden

For this weeks challenge the theme was gardening. I chose this recent photo of azaleas I shot at the NY Botanical Gardens. The word popped into my head as I was processing the image. I used Kim's latest texture stained linen. I love it!

I added 2 layers of stained linen set to soft light and then did some adjustments to the saturation and levels for contrast. I love what this texture does with the muted pink and gray tones.

Here is the original image below. . .
