Hem Your Blessings - More PhotoShop Play

This week's challenge at Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday was to use a texture called "empty page" and a title of "cuppa cuppa texture love". The Cup being the main ingredient. I tried a heavily color saturated photograph of this cup filled with brushes and it was too overpowering. I tried using it filled with dandelions, English daisys and Bleeding Hearts and that wasn't the look I wanted either. I was looking for a vintage look that would compliment the 'empty page' colors and feel. What better solution that to go back to my stitching roots. This one worked. It's a combination of 5 layers . I was happy with the vintage feel and the sentiment just seemed to fit!  

I am having so much fun with this. I am lusting for PS5 now -how can sell enough fabric to come up with the money?!
