Texture, Texture, Texture

(click to enlarge to see greater detail)

This little wagon was the wagon that both my son and daughter played with when they were growing up. Both of them have children of their own now. The wagon is pretty old but you can see they took good care of it. Here it sits on the porch of our little garden shed filled with really big Easter eggs. Texture Thursday is hosted by Audrey at The Daily Wyatt. Link up your photos with added texture or texture naturally there. My photo this week has a little of both. There is lots of texture in the gray board siding of the shed as well as the wood plank flooring of the porch. The wagon is covered with the texture of peeling paint and rust that you can't see on the handle. I've added a Kim Klassen texture as well to my original photo and played around with different blending modes to achieve the look you see in the image. Hope you enjoy!

when I first saw the picture I thought, "that's either a miniature wagon or some really big eggs". Either way it looks cute.

I love your capture. It's rustic and definitely full of neat textures and with that pop of color for Easter. It's just gorgeous. I love the wagon that you have saved. Thank you so much for linking up with us for Theme Thursdays Transportation!
