Welcome to EarlK Design!

The EarlK Design blog consists mainly of entries that show how to do things using Adobe Photoshop that I hope you will find helpful and give your creative mind more tools to work with.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS6, and sometimes Adobe Illustrator CS5, Lightroom 5, and Corel Painter X. However, I believe that much of what I show can be done using Photoshop Elements.

Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen June 14, 2011

This week's Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen is a freebie for us.  That is, we can use any kind of an image and then use at least one of Kim's textures with the image.  My Golden Spirea is in blossom now, so I took a few photos of it to use for this week's Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen.

Here is the photo I used for this week. This image is how it looked Straight Out Of Camera (SOOC).

And, after using two of Kim's textures, kk_stainedLinen.jpg and kk_stainedLinen.jpg, plus doing some other things, this is what I ended up with.

If you click on the image, you can see a larger version of it.

This is what I did to the image.

Recipe (Layer 1 is bottom layer, Layer 9 is top layer)

Layer 1. Background layer is the original image layer.
Layer 2. Duplicate of background layer.
Layer 3. High Pass filter sharpen.
Layer 4. Composite layer of previous layers.
Layer 5. KK_StainedLinen texture, Pin Light 100% opacity.
Layer 6. Black/White Adjustment layer, Default. Clipped to Layer 5.
Layer 7. Levels Adjustment layer. Played around.
Clipped to Layer 5.
Layer 8. KK_Mayzee texture, Color Burn 100% opacity. Turn layer visibility off.
Layer 5. Added layer mask to Layer 5. Copied KK_Mayzee texture into mask. Then painted with black over flower areas in mask.
Layer 8. Turned layer visibility back on.
Layer 9. Added Hue/Saturation Adjustment layer. Increased Saturation to 100%. Painted with black over flower areas on Layer Mask.

If you haven't been to Kim Klassen's site before, you really need to visit with her. She is a remarkable woman.  She also has some very interesting and enjoyable and informative classes to offer.

I enjoyed this Texture Tuesday Challenge very much and am looking forward to next week's. 

Until next time, enjoy your photography and scrapbooking.
