I loved this theme and this texture. Kim at Kim Klassen Cafe offered a simple challenge this week - use her free texture Happy Hearts somewhere.
As I was thinking of what photo to play with this week, I realized that with a texture named Happy Hearts, the photo had to include my husband......since he makes my heart absolutely happy.
Original image (we were going out):
I used Happy Hearts at soft light 70%, duplicated it and used it at multiply 45%. Somehow it seems they should cancel each other out...one lightens, one darkens, but without both, the photo was either too washed out or too dark. Then I added Kim's Pink which put some texture on the blank wall. I erased around our faces a bit at reduced opacity to remove most but not all of the textures.
