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 . . . 26 March 2013

Another Tuesday has come and we have a new Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen. This is what she gave us as guidelines:

Tuesday, March 26th's theme is flower power.

What does this mean? I'm sure you already know.

Your photo must contain at least one layer of any of my textures, and it must have a little 'flower power'......  No need for more information... take it away friends.... 

Sound good?

I have been creating some hand-drawn flowers in Photoshop CS6. I use the Pencil Tool and draw with the mouse. Flower Power comes at a perfect time for me. The hand-drawn flowers are of the artsy type. My flowers are flower-ish. If you haven't read Peter Reynolds' book "ish," you should try seeing a copy of it. Ish will let the artist in all of you come out.

This is what my flowers look like. They are very flower-ish.

I needed to use my flowers for today's Texture Tuesday. So I created a house with the Pencil Tool . . . colored in the house . . . put the house in my layout . . . planted some flowers around the house . . . brought in the 1882 song "Home! Sweet Home!", words by John Howard Payne and music by Sir Henry Bishop . . . used my hand-drawn doodle borders for the page and the flower photograph.  I used Kim's kk_cherish texture over the music and background layers. I used kk_cherish at Liner Burn blend mode and 50% Opacity. For the flower photograph, I used a layer of kk_cherish texture at Linear Burn Mode and 50% Opacity and then one more layers of kk_cherish at Soft Light and 100% Opacity to brighten the colors of the flower.  This is what I ended up with.

Live life fully.

Great flower power, but upon scrolling down I absolutely love the Einstein collage.

I like the way you combine photography with drawing. And the texture works well. Great job!
