How are you? I hope you had a fantastic week. And here’s to another weekend on it's way! My how time flies.
Okay so, when you see your FREEBIES today, at first glance you may think…huh? ‘What is she doing? She’s lost her marbles!’ But I’m telling you, though, Today’s freebies are pretty much magical. You just need to know how to use them!
Before I share them …and tell you the secret trick for today’s textures, can we just take a moment and blow Sophie a few virtual kisses? I’m telling you, this girl is so sweet. She has such an amazing zest for life… And she’s also the gentlest doggy, ever. And She loves to be LOVED. She could sit and let you kiss her forever. It’s so sweet. She just soaks it all up! Oh, I suppose I should mention Sophie is staying with us this weekend! Woo hooo!
And BIG NEWS…Monday we become doggy owners again! Yep! :) Do you remember the puppy in need of a family that could give him lots of love and attention…and most importantly fresh air and exercise? I shared the story HERE. Well he’s coming our way on Monday. Fingers crossed we can make him super happy and that he and Sophie become bestest cousins. :)
So back to the magical textures. Check out the before image above. I converted it to black and white and then proceeded to add a layer of both of today’s textures. Here’s the top secret part… I changed the blending mode to SCREEN. I then removed a bit of the texture from Sophie’s sweet face. Can you see the magical effect they have created? I mean, don’t ya love it?
I dare you to play with this technique my friends… It will work on all kinds of images…both black & white and colour. I’d love to see your results!! And perhaps I can feature some here or at the soon to be opening...TEST KITCHEN’. I have a Flickr pool you can post your images in. If you do share an image or 2 or 3 with today’s textures, please note it in your description. I’d LOVE to see!
Before I sign off…. the response to the TEST KITCHEN and the PHOTOSHOP COOKBOOK has been MIND BLOWING!! I have no words to express my gratitude. I am sooo very appreciative of your support! Thank you, thank you!!
Texture Lovin’ Listers…. I have sent you the link to download today’s ‘MAGIC’ textures. If you are not on my list and you would like to start receiving my freebies, you can sign up HERE. Once you sign up, I will ZAP you today’s textures. And each Friday you will receive a new one (or 2 or 3)…
I’m off to the trail with Sophie. It’s finally warm today. And I can’t wait to soak up the sun.
Happiest weekend.. xxo,
