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
