Love Big (and be loved)


It's Texture Tuesday over at the Kim Klassen Cafe, and this week's theme is LOVE. I found this image in my folder and thought it was appropriate. I took this photo in Shoreline Park while on a walk with my two big loves, my husband and son. I couldn't capture the whole image, but the full quote was "Love big and be loved". It was carved along with all the other graffitti (A+R) on the boardwalk fence which overlooks the inlet. I thought it was such a great random act of kindness to create positive graffitti!

For those interested in the processsing, I used a colour fill layer, the textures Cinnamon and Autumn Burst, and a couple of adjustment layers to tweek the colour and brightness.

And one final thought on love:

"It isn't enough to love; we must prove it."
St. Therese of Lisieux

Have a beautiful day!
