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 Klasen . . . 25 June 2013

This Texture Tuesday is again a Free & Easy. This means any photo as long as you use at least one of Kim's textures. Be sure to go to Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen and see all the other Texture Tuesday entries.

For Father's Day this year, my daughter sent sent a bouquet of flowers. I took some photos of the flowers, and I used one of them for this Texture Tuesday. Here is the photo I started with.



And this is what I ended with.



To see what I did, follow along.

I opened a new 12 x 12-inch, 300 ppi, RGB document. Above the background layer I brought in my photo and cropped it so that the image covered the whole document  Notice which layers have their visibility on to see where I am in the Layers Panel.



The next thing I did was to duplicate the layer ( Command / Control - J ).

There used to be an optional plug-in called Pixel Bender that you could download from Adobe that had a great oil painting filter in it. Well, Adobe no longer supports Pixel Bender in CS6. It is available for CS4 and CS5. However, in CS6, there is the oil paint filter under the Filter Menu. If you would like to see a great tutorial on using this oil paint filter, go to Julieanne Kost's site and see her Quick Tip — The Oil Paint Filter in Photoshop CS6.

On this duplicate layer, I used the oil paint filter to give me a slight oil painted look to my image. It is a little hard to see in  this image, but it is there.



Next I duplicated the painted layer and then applied the same oil paint filter with the same settings to the duplicated layer. This gave me a nice strong oil painted look.



For the next layer, I brought in a wood Stamp that I created using Photoshop. I gave it a blue color, Dissolve Blend Mode and 60% Opacity.



Next I created the title and the date layers. I rasterized the text layers so that I could use the oil paint filter on them. Then I gave them a Bevel & Emboss and a Stroke. I set the title to Linear Dodge mode at 100% Opacity, and the date to Linear Light at 100% Opacity.


Then I duplicated the original flower layer and brought it up to the top. I left it at Normal mode but Opacity 20%. This cut down the strength of the oil painting look a little.



Then, I brought in Kim's texture kk_abstract. I set its blend mode to Hue and 100% Opacity. That gave a wonderful overall color to the layout.



But it still needed a little something on the right side of the layout. I brought in another of my wood stamps that I made. I set it to Screen at 100% Opacity.



And that is how my layout was made.




I hope you enjoyed seeing this. If you haven't been to Julieanne Kost's site before, you may want to see all the wonderful tutorials she has for both Photoshop and Lightroom.


Live life fully.

I have used Pixelbender in Photoshop CS5 and it is a fun filter to play around with. Beautiful process and it made the flowers look as if painted. Valerie

I really like what you did here, Earl! Beautiful texturing! I appreciate all the comments you've left on my blog - I'm sorry I haven't been able to respond to each one. In case you don't know, you come through as a "noreply" blogger. I was glad to find you again through Texture Tuesday!
