raspberries {6/52}

My quick contribution to this week’s focus52 prompt, still life.


I love taking photos of fruit. And it seems I can’t resist working them into some sort of art piece, adding textures and whatnot.

Two gorgeous textures here, one from the always fabulous Kim Klassen and another from my new-found friend, Eva Ricci. This year, Eva has started a twelve month creative project called Art of Texture. Each month she gives away one of her beautiful textures and provides four themes to choose from. If you’re interested, you can check out her website here and her Art of Texture flickr group here. It seems I always end up taking on too many projects each year, but a once a month commitment I can definitely handle. Besides, her textures are fantastic.

There’s also a photoshop brush used between these layers. The faint writing you see isn’t from the textures, it’s from a lovely set of brushes from French Kiss.

Do you play around with your photos at all? Are you a texture addict like I am? :)


2012! are you in?

    Very inviting. I can almost taste their sweetness. Very nicely arranged too, and the texture does add an extra something.
