Our guide for this week's Texture Tuesday is:
Let's talk next week's TT theme.
How 'bout a kk_lifesgood eDition... Share your latest fav image, layered with any of my textures.
So, that is what I will do. I recently got a new macro lens for my Canon EOS 40D camera. I got the
Layer 1. I want to use a square format for this layout, so I opened a new document that was 12 x 12-inch, 300 ppi, RGB, white background. I won't show this layer as it is just a plain white layer.
Layer 2. I brought in my image for this layer. Using free transform, I resized the image to fit my 12 x 12-inch layout.
Layer 3. I used Kim's kk_lifesgood texture for this layer. This is what it looks like at Normal Mode and 100% Opacity.
I thought this might be a nice texture to use with an image of matches. To me this has a nice smoky quality. As I was cycling through the blend modes, I saw what Luminosity was like at 100% Opacity.
I thought that would be a great background for an art journaling page, so I saved a copy of this for that purpose. Then I reduced the opacity to 60% and got the feeling I was after for the image.
Now, I have a really nice smoky feel about the matches. And I could stop here and be very happy.
However, since this was a 'free & easy' challenge and I had used Kim's kk_lifesgood texture already, I decided to try something a little different. I have been experimenting with making some of my own digital textures strictly with just my computer. So, I next used one of my experimental textures.
Layer 4. This is what my computer generated texture looks at Normal Mode and 100% Opacity. Actually, I have Layer 1 visible below so you are seeing it over a white background. The white areas are actually transparent on my texture.
I then set the blend mode to Divide and the opacity 30%. And, this gives me some streaks of smoke within my image.
Now I am really happy with my result and am stopping at this point.
I hope that you enjoyed this tour.
Live your life wonderfully.
