Hello my fabulous Texture Tuesday Friends! How are you?
I hope well!
Are you ready for another Texture Tuesday Link Up, Blog-Hopping Party?
This week... we are free and easy... share your faved Textured Photo... any theme...any texture... the skies the limit.
I took the photo above this past Sunday... a little Mother's Day Drive.... and my oh my did we find some fabulous sights... more to share soon....
I used the latest Freebie - Trust, along with one of my new May Magic Textures.... And I have to say I love the transformation....
So... here's my recipe.....
Layer 1 - Background Image
Layer 2 - Trust at soft light 100%
Layer 3 - Hue/Sat Adjustment layer - slightly desaturated the image..... to tone down the yellows.
Layer 4 - Curves adjustment darkened the image and bumped up the blacks a little. I could have done the same thing with a levels adjustment.
Layer 5 - KK1 Texture from the May Magic Collection (see below) Screen Blend Mode 100%
Layer 6 - Duplicated Layer 5 and added a layer mask to remove a little here and there....
Layer 7 - Another Curves Adjustment - wanted to darken the overall image just a little more.
Layer 8 - Added a new blank layer - and used a soft round black paint brush at 60% opacity... brushed over the areas I wanted to darken (burn).... and changed the blend mode to soft light. (a fabulous non-destructive burn technique). This brought out the sky details.... and added overall image depth....
