We have another Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen for today. For today, Kim told us that our image must contain at least one layer of her texture kk_minus43. The reason she named the texture that is because it was -43º outside when she was making the texture. Brrrrrrrrr . . . . . . that is cold.
I needed to have an image that had some warmth to it. This is the image that I selected to work with.
Step 1. I opened the image in Photoshop.
Step 2. I brought in Kim's texture kk_minus43. I resized it to fit my image. This is the texture at Normal Mode and 100% Opacity.
Step 3. I changed the layer blend mode to Pin Light, Opacity still at 100%, and added a layer mask. With a soft black round brush, at 30% opacity, I painted with black on the mask to hide some of the texture from the flower area.
Step 4. I duplicated the flower layer and brought it up to the top of the layer stack. I also reduced the Opacity to 30%.
Step 5. Then I changed the layer blend mode to Dissolve and kept Opacity 30%.
I seldom use the Dissolve blend mode, but this time I think it adds considerably to the image. It gives the image an appearance that it sort of has a burnished gold metallic finish. I like this result and it where I stopped.
Here is how the image now appears.
This is much warmer than -43º.
I hope you enjoyed see what I did with Kim's kk-minus43 texture.
Live life fully.
Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery; but today is a gift, that’s why it’s called the present.
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.
