The Daily Texture for 11/03/2015
It's odd, the things that inspire me. From one day to the next, I never know what it will be that inspires the next texture. For this one, it was cupcakes. My daughter loves making them, and she made some red velvet cupcakes. Not only were they delicious, but so were the colors! So, Today's Daily Texture was inspired by them. :)
I paired the texture with a beautiful white horse I met recently. I think the red is a great contrast for her fur. I used the texture as a background, and then as a soft light layer on top at about 50%, with some of that layer masked off her face.
