When I play around with textures in PicMonkey, it's to create something quite different from the actual photo. Simply laying a texture over my photos to lighten or soften doesn't seem to appeal to my eye, given that most of my photos are bright colors taken outdoors. So I choose some that don't scream "add texture" to me and just have fun.
Our fabulous Lupines are blooming right now, turning hillsides blue. I have noticed them in places that I haven't seen in past years, like my own property. We have a scattered few here and there, nothing to turn our slopes that glorious blue, but maybe that bodes well for future years?
This hillside has a lot of blue and I wish I could trespass over the fences to take more photos from a closer spot. Anyway, here's my play with texture for this week's Tuesday Muse. I added Nancy's Skies - Laundry Day. I think it's a rather surprising change.
