TT – Spring Blossom ‘Crackerjack’ eDition

Spring is on its way…Yeehaw! This weeks Texture Tuesday  party challenge with Kim Klassen is that we have to incorporate her new texture ‘crakerjack’. It’s a FUNtastic texture giving a photo a glazed crackle effect.
I love this effect and let me tell you, to actually get this effect on any of your arty crafty objects it takes time and patience, waiting for paint to dry and the crackle  effect to magically appear. So much easier with a add button in our photographic software, with combinations of all sorts of adjustments to light and tones.
I couldn’t decide on which one I liked the most, so I uploaded all three…
What’s your opinion, tell me which one caresses your emotions and inspires Spring Fever.

A cloudless sky, a world of heather. Purple of foxglove, yellow of broom;

We two among it, wading together, Shaking out honey,treading perfume.

Crowds of bees are giddy with clover

Crowds of grasshoppers skip at our feet,

Crowds of larks at their matins hangover,

Thanking the Lord for a life so sweet.

Jean Ingelow.

  1. Hi, Yvette,

    Oh, yes..Spring is on its way to you! For me, autumn is so very welcomed.

    Your photos are lovely…Hmmm…let’s see, I do like the first photo because the contrast of pink and white flowers is so pretty, but then I decided that the second photo caught my fancy…I think because of the pinkness – even in the background. It’s soft and so like spring.

    Have a glorious week,
