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 ..... 19 June 2012


For lack of time, I cannot give you all the details that I did in creating my final image from Kim Klassen's kk_lilac_samplephoto.jpg image that she provided to us as a download for a starting point. This download was provided to us in her Beyond Layers class in Day 44. However, I will tell you the steps that I did.


Here is the original image.




•  The original image was about 3.3 x 4.2-inch at 300 ppi. I increased the size in 10% increments until it was a little larger than 8.5 x 11-inch at 300 ppi. Then I cropped it to 8.5 x 11-inch at 300 ppi.


•  I did not want the dark vine wreath in the upper corner, so I used the Clone Stamp Tool and removed it. I copied from the brick wall to the left in the image.


•  Then I added in one of my watercolor papers that was pinkish in color.


•  Next, I brought in a copy of the lilac layer that had the wreath removed to the top and reduced the opacity. This gave a little more emphasis to the lilac flowers.


•  Next I made a composite layer of all the layers below it.


•  Then I used a Smart Blur Filter to create a line drawing of the image. I set the blend mode to Soft Light so that the line drawing was just sort of a hint of being there.


•  Next, I brought in Kim's texture kk_abstract. I set the mode to Linear Burn with Opacity 20%.


And, here is my final image.




And, that is basically what I did.

The line drawing makes it look like the jar is sitting in water. A very cool effect. Nice job.
