I went looking for texture in the linens section of Kmart today. I wasn’t overly thrilled with any of my photos, but here’s what I have…

This is a very fuzzy bath mat. I would love to have one of these – my bath mat is in terrible shape – but I didn’t spend the money today.

Here is what I did with the texture (the photo of Caleb with the banana dog is a few weeks old – just the texture is new).
I put the texture on top of the photo and added a layer mask. I changed the layer blend mode to Soft Light and lowered the opacity a bit. Then I masked out Caleb and the banana dog. After that was done I lowered the opacity a bit more so the texture wasn’t overwhelming.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog!

I really like what you did. I also like that you showed an example of what can be done with your texture. Thanks for sharing.
BTW The banana dog is too funny!

Not sure where to post this but I wanted to ask if anyone has heard of National Clicks?

Can someone help me find it?

Overheard some co-workers talking about it all week but didn't have time to ask so I thought I would post it here to see if someone could help me out.

Seems to be getting alot of buzz right now.
