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 August 9, 2011

Here is another Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen. The theme for this one is 'it's the little things.'  This required some thought of what to do. I was looking around the room and the phone rang. Literally, the bell ran for my idea. You will see it as I progress through my steps for the final result.


Layer 1.  As normal, for me, I started with a blank white new layer when I opened my new document.




Layer 2.   For this layer I added a Gradient Fill layer. I used a medium blue to transparent linear gradient from the bottom to the top. While the Gradient Fill dialog was still open, I moved my cursor into the image area. The cursor becomes the Move Tool. I moved the transition of the gradient up closer to the top of the image.This left only a narrow transparent area near the top through which you see some of the white of Layer 1 below.



Layer 3.  I used Kim's kk_stainedLinen texture for this layer. I set the Blending Mode to Overlay and Opacity 100%. I really like the kk_stainedLinen texture.


Layer 4.  Next I used Kim's kk_chamomile texture. I set the Blending Mode to Lighter Color and the Opacity 100%.


Layer 5.  Now you start to see what my idea for the layout is. I brought into the layout as Layer 5 the image of Bell's 1876 telephone. I left the Blending Mode Normal and Opacity 100%.


Layer 6.  I used an image of a current day iPhone for this layer. Normal Blending Mode and 100% Opacity.


Layers 7 - 10.  I have 4 layers for the text on these layers. I will just show the one image here that includes these 4 layers.


Layer 11.  This is my signature layer. I put the signature in the lower right corner. The signature is a brush that I made. This way I can adjust the size and color to what I want. I used the Normal Blending Mode and reduced the Opacity to 50%.


Layer 12.  I made a Composite Layer (Command/Control-Option/Alt-Shift-E) which gives me a layer with all the visible layers below it on the one layer.  I used the Inner Glow Layer Style to darken the edges of the image. I showed how to do this before. With the Inner Glow dialog open, I selected Linear Burn with Color Black, and Size 100 px.



Layer 13.  I made a Composite Layer for this layer. Now I have all the visible layers showing on this one layer. I want to put a put a Sprayed Strokes Filter Gallery effect on the edges of the layer. I turned off the visibility of all the layers below this one except for the white Layer 1. I used the Rectangular Marquee Tool and placed a selection around the image that was about 1/4-inch in from the edges. Then I clicked on the Add Layer Mask button at the bottom of the Layers Panel to add a mask to the layer. This then shows a white border around the image which is what you see of the Layer 1 below. You now have only a little of the darkened edge left. Make sure the Layer Mask is selected and go to Filter / Filter Gallery/Brush Strokes/Sprayed Strokes. Set the parameters to suit you. I used Stroke Length 20, Spray Radius 23, and Right Diagonal.


 Layer 14 (goes just above Layer 1).  I didn't want the white of Layer 1 to be the color behind the Sprayed Stroke edge. I sampled the color from the tan color area of the image and filled this new layer with that color. I used a Solid Color Fill Adjustment Layer to add the color layer. That way I could easily adjust the color if I wanted.


Layer 15.  The image was a little washed out for my taste. I duplicated Layer 14 (Command / Control-J) and set the Blending Mode to Multiply and Opacity 100%. This gave me my final image. I was very pleased with it.




I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog for this episode of Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen.


That is all for this time.
Enjoy life.


Earl
