Our photos are centred around the theme of celebration this week for Texture Tuesday, using at least one of Kim’s textures. I chose the latest one from her – “Look-up”.
I am celebrating how much I have learned from Kim, Nancy and Bonnie, about photos, photo art and textures – plus the joy of play in Photoshop. To anyone who doesn’t consider this an art form, have a go. You’ll be surprised just how easily you can lose yourself in a virtual palette of shades, tones, moods and atmosphere… I dare you!!
I took this photo with my mobile phone. The clematis sits on my front window sill behind a net curtain which is quite dense, to give us a little privacy! I tucked the curtain behind the plant to get a decent shot and when I started to process it, the magic of Kim’s linen-like texture was revealed.
I copied the image first and used screen @70% to make the flowers stand out. When I added ‘look-up’, it made the curtain fade away completely – wonderful! I copied this layer 3 more times and used overlay, colour burn and multiply all at 100%. I did use a mask on the final layer to ‘clean up’ the flowers a little.
To that I added a layer of Nancy’s texture with text – colour burn 100% – and erased it from the flower heads…
The font is “chiller”.
You can find lots of wonderfully textured photos over at TT – the Cafe.
