Bonnie’s challenge was to take a favourite book and apply this to one of her textures such as pdpa Blank page. I had to think hard and long, then I remember a photo I took back in 2003 while on a holiday in Maine with my friend who took me to see a covered bridge. In the past I enjoyed reading Waller’s “Bridges of Madison County”, so I decided to see if I could bring the two together.
I altered the original photograph with KK’s Wonderful Magic texture, then I played with pdpa Inkblotter as the first layer at Darken blending mode 100% opacity, I added pdpa Blank Page over this at Normal blending 100% opacity, added my covered bridge and then placed pdpa Birth of Light over this at blending mode of Saturation 100% opacity. Added the text. Then using the colour replacement brush added a reddish colour to the roof. My final touch was to use Topaz Labs Adjust 5 filter to brighten up the features.

Great minds think alike Kaylene!!!
My very favorite book/movie.
Your photograph is just beautiful!
Oh yes … such a romantic book … and movie. What a stellar piece of work here Kaylene. Impressive! The publishers should use your image for the cover of their next release of this book!
I love this creation, it works perfectly.
You did a great job on this Kaylene! Really love what you did with this!
great picture, I should probably also read this book 🙂
Hi 🙂 Looks very good. Wonderful photo processing.
very nice, makes my want to read a book to 🙂
Wonderful edit, Kaylene!
and I enjoyed the book too!
This is a nice picture.
Beautiful work. I love the “vintage” feel. Have not read the book though.
Oh this is just fabulous, and it does belong on the cover of a book!
Excellent! Personally, although I love Meryl Streep, I would have preferred Clint had picked Sophia Loren for his farmer’s wife;)
You did a fantastic job…wow, love it. I’ve never read the book, only saw the movie, but loved that.
