Hello sweet friends....Happiest TT!
This week's theme is Back to School. I think it's going to be a good one! Don't you?
Remember your image must contain 2 different textures.... (gotta love a challenge)....
I'm excited to see all of your amazing submissions. Last week's movie images were truly AMAZING.
Before I share my recipe for today's BTS image.... I had to share a pic of my helper.... Mr. Bennigan.... He's the funniest puppy dog... Gosh, I just love him!
Here's the photoshop recipe for today's Back to School photo.
Layer 1 - Background
Layer 2 - Autumn (from the Ultimate Bundle) Added a layer mask and partially removed the texture from the apple and books.
Layer 3 - blank layer set to soft light blend mode. Painted over the apple and books with a black soft round at 50% opacity, to deepen the colors.
Layer 4 - Hue/Saturation Adjustment - Choose the red channel and reduced the saturation, just a tad. This helped with the antique look I was going for.
Layer 5 - Added the type in a tan shade selected from the books. (font used SchoolHouse Printed A) at multiply blend mode 100% opacity.
Layer 6 - Coffee tea or me texture (a past texture part of a new soon to be released bundle...watch for it... it's good stuff) at soft light 74% opacity. Added a layer mask and partially removed the texture from the apple and books.

Okie doke....it's time for next week's TT Theme.
How about the color orange? I noticed some of the trees are turning ....autumn is coming...which I can't believe.... then I noticed some lovely fall photos on pinterest.... and well...... that's how next week's theme came about....
So for next week's TT theme... let's see your interpretation of the color orange.... and as usual... please include one texture on your photo.
