Here we are...another week has zipped right on by!
My goodness, time flies between TT's. :)
This week.... Please share a recent fav textured photo... containing at least one layer of my textures.
I just had to share my brownie pic with you all and tell you a little bitty story.....
Today, John zipped into town to look at a car for Bryce..... anyhow, the owner of the car owns an antique shop. John did a little shopping while he was there.
He arrived home with this sweet little 'Holiday Brownie', a 'Brownie Hawkeye', a very cool old scale and a mountain dew pop bottle.
I'm telling ya... this man knows the way to my heart!! 'sigh'.... happy, happy 'sigh'!
As for the car, that's another story... haha...
Oh and totally changing the subject here.... But I must tell you, we went to the BEST movie last night....
Crazy Stupid Love.... It was laugh out loud funny, touching, and just all around feel good FABULOUS! I have to say, it's exactly what I needed. :) And as always, the popcorn was De-Lish..... :)
Okay, let's get back on TT-Track here.
How bout a little photoshop recipe?
Vintage Brownie Photoshop Recipe
Converted to black and white using the black and white adjustment layer option in cs5. (choose the maximum white preset from the top dropdown option)
Added a levels adjustment to BOOST the blacks and removed it from the background. This allowed the camera to POP!
Added a black to white gradient map to increase the contrast. Set the blend mode to soft light and reduced the opacity to 32%. (a little more popping going on!)
Added 2 layers of 'scratched magic july' at screen blend mode. Reduced the second layer opacity to 50%.
Added a new blank layer, grabbed a white soft round brush at 30% opacity and painted over the top left area to soften/lighten the background a little bitty.
Stamped it with 'vintage' from my soon to be released 'yesteryear brush' set.
Okie doke.... before we get to linkin' our latest texture love.... we must talk next week's theme!
