Hey there, my sweet peeps! How was your week?
Here were are… Friday again! Wow, it sure creeps up in a hurry…doesn’t it? We have a long weekend in Canada – Labour Day weekend… How bout the rest of the world? I can’t keep track of the different holidays.
So today I have a pretty darn cool freebie texture for you… and I’m sharing 3 different versions of my typewriter image using today’s texture as well.
I want to show you the magic you can create by playing with the blending modes. On the above image I used today’s texture - ‘mustard seed’. It’s a good one, folks! I added 2 layers one at multiply 35% and then another at soft light 70%. I often use a combination of multiply and soft light…adjusting the layers to get it just right.
Check out the texture and then I will share a few more techniques with you.
It reminds me of warm cozy sweaters, jeans and ugg boots……. ‘sigh’
Next I used 2 layers of Mustard Seed, set one layer at screen blending mode and another layer at soft light. I think it created a somewhat muddy effect. That I quite like. Kind of dramatic….
and for the last image…. I used one layer of Mustard Seed set at good old SOFT LIGHT 100%. You can rarely go wrong with the soft light blending mode!.
I will be going deeper into the details of these images in my soon to be released photoshop cookbook.
I’m seriously bursting to tell you more about it. It’s not just a cook book… oh no.. it’s a digital package… of seriously GOOD stuff. I’m hoping to spill some details on Monday. ‘sigh’

I think that covers it for today, my friends. Here’s to a completely inspired September weekend!
No news on the puppy dog front. I’m afraid the owner is really having a hard time with the decision. I’m keeping fingers, toes and everything else crossed and sending up prayers… Thanks for all the sweet comments about it. I will keep you all posted.
Oh, there’s a really cool feature for this new site. It’s almost like a blog within a blog – they call it microblogging I think. I’m hoping to utilize it for more casual communication with you all. More on that next week…and I have had had several lovely emails about my new site…and YES I highly recommend SQUARESPACE!!
Over and out, my friends… see you Monday…
Oh dear, one more thing….have you been visiting the i-Studio? Seriously it’s rockin’ with talent and tons of INSPIRATION… Maybe I will see you over there this weekend with a little inspiration of my own….
