Tools of the Trade

For Texture Tuesday 31/5 on Kim Klassen's site.
A photo from my greenhouse.
Using the texture "Breakfree", which already had the gardening-friendly word "soak", I added a couple of other words and used the texture first set at "colour" 79%, then again as a grunge border. I reduced the photo opacity on the right,layering it over a third copy of the texture.

Below is the original

For Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday. Yes, I know today is Wednesday, but if Barack Obama thinks it is 3 years ago, one day is nothing.
Here is a photo of a London pub. I used Kim's texture "Yesteryear", twice in fact and used sketch filters.
