PAF: holiday season

Photo Art Friday (PAF) is here again with a very broad theme of showing the holiday hustle and bustle, the preparations or activities so I have a couple to share.

I used Bonnie's Christmas Music and Intensify textures and added posterize filter to this holiday table.

This shot of one of my Santa collection has Old Ornate Linen texture at vivid light 50% and then erased around his face.

Added a little crackle texture, soft light at 55% to this old ornament - one of the few left from my childhood.

And finally, played around with my mantel (both the decor and the processing!).  I used Bonnie's great Christmas Music texture again.....

Happy Holidays to you all and I look forward to starting up again in January.  For now, be sure to visit as many of the participants as you can.  There are a lot of them and I certainly can't visit everyone, but I do my best....
