AEDM day 8 and texture tuesday

I can't believe it's Tuesday again already and time for Kim Klassen's Texture Tues.  Her theme is "two" - an interesting challenge with so many possibilities.

My take is to use a leaf I picked up (I gathered leaves in Vermont on vacation and brought them home and then gathered piles of them from here at home - some yet-to-be-determined project in the making.....), dried and pressed, then scanned.  


 I duplicated the leaf, added a shadow and put them over a fall tree photo in the background that I blurred out.  Next I added a gradient level (at 49%) using one of the golden tan colors picked from the leaves.


Finally I added Kim's texture Pourvous at 100% Hard Light for a simple finish.  Not as many layers as some of my other creations, but a strong finish I think.

This is my AEDM entry for day 8 and my Texture Tuesday and Texture Thursday entry.
