Well, we played with the black background.... now let's play with the light background... Same tulips, different POV and lots of light.....
Show me what you've got lovelies....
Step 1. I opened the image in Photoshop CS6. It came in as a Background layer.
Step 2. I converted the Background layer into a Smart Object by right clicking on the layer to open the context dialog menu and selected Convert to Smart Object.
And the layer becomes a Smart Object. You can see that it is by the small icon in the lower right corner of the layer thumbnail.
Step 3. With the layer now being a Smart Object, I can use Smart Filters on the layer. The filter will show under the layer. I want to use the Crosshatch filter. I went up to the Filter menu and selected Filter Gallery.
This opens the Filter Gallery. I selected Brush Strokes and Crosshatch. In the Crosshatch dialog, I selected Stroke Length = 13, Sharpness = 9, and Strength = 3. This gave me a nice crosshatch over the image.
Then I clicked OK to have the crosshatch applied to my image. Since the layer is a Smart Object, the filter shows up under the layer and the filter is editable if I want to go back and change it.
Step 4. Next I wanted to bring in one of Kim's textures. I used kk-red. Here it is at Normal mode and 100% Opacity. I thought that the texture's color would blend in nicely with the color of the tulip. And I like the lighter border around it.
Then I changed the blend mode to Linear Burn and decreased the Opacity to 80%.
I am very pleased with this result and it is what I ended with. Here it is.
I hope you enjoyed seeing what I did with this image.
Live life joyously and have as much fun as you can.
