Hello my friends,
Happiest Sunday! How was your weekend? I hope lovely!
I'm truly missing the sunshine these days. 'sigh'....feeling a little uninspired.
But I'm here now with your Friday texture....Hubby had some left over tea sitting on his bed table.... So, I let it 'age' then put it to work. :)
I also used the texture 'mona' from The Studio Collection. I really LOVE it.... and it worked fabulously with today's freebie... 'chamomile'.
I thought I would share the recipe for today's image. So here it goes.
Duplicated the background, and sharpened the image using the high pass filter method.
Added cooling filter 80 at soft light reduced the opacity to 42%
Added 2 layers of Mona texture from the studio collection. The first layer was soft light blend mode at 67% opacity and the second layer was multiply blend mode at 67%. I added a layer mask and removed the texture from the tulips using a 50% opacity brush.
Added 2 layers of chamomile texture. The first layer was soft light at 100% opacity and the second layer was multiply at 20% opacity. Again I removed the texture from the tulips using a 50% opacity brush.
Added a hue/sat adjusment layer and reduced the overall saturation, as well as the yellows.
And finally I added a gradient vignette at 50% soft light.
