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 November 1, 2011

Here is my entry for Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen for November 1, 2011. The guideline for this week is:

Tuesday, November 1st TT Theme is:

Your image must contain one layer of the texture, 'and then some'. 

I will take this literally and use only one layer of the texture 'and then some'. And I will use only one image layer (there will an original layer for the image also in case I mess up). The image I will use is that of a daisy-type chrysanthemum that I took on October 11, 2011, at the Lauritzen Gardens, Omaha, Nebraska, during the Fall Chrysanthemum Show. The show is still going on.

In 1753, botanist Carl Linnaeus established the scientific name Chrysanthemum, combining the Greek words chrysos, meaning gold, with anthemon, meaning flower. Modern botanists now place these plants in the genus Dendranthemum, but these beloved garden flowers are still referred to by the familiar name of chrysanthemum or, simply, "mum." Regardless of name changes, these plants are members of the aster family (Asteraceae), along with other familiar wildflowers and garden plants like asters, daisies, sunflowers, marigolds and zinnias. The bloom, which appears as a single flower, is actually made up of hundreds of flowers called florets. Two kinds of florets are present in a single bloom, disk florets and ray florets. On a daisy-type chrysanthemum the outer parts are ray florets and the center, or eye, is comprised of disk florets.

Here is my original image.

And, here is my image to which one layer of the texture 'kk_and-then-some' has been applied. 

To get this result, I have used the Pattern Stamp Tool in Photoshop. This is a technique that I recently learned about from Mark S. Johnson. To see what I have done, I created the following video for you to watch to see how to do it. The video is 24 minutes long.

To view the movie, you will need to enter the password.

I hope you enjoyed the video and hope that this technique will be of use to you in your scrapbooking and artistic efforts. 

That is all for now.
