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.

Digital Art Journal Challenge . . . 16 August 2013 . . . Silence


For the month of August 2013, we have the challenge that Nancie Janitz gave us:

       The prompt I picked for this month's challenge is SILENCE.

Nancie also gave us a great painted background that we could use if we wished to do so. I wished to do so. This is it after I changed it to 12 x 12-inch at 300 ppi. Check the Layer stack to see what is visible to see where I am in the discussion.



I duplicated the background image for the next layer. And I clipped in a Gradient Map Adjustment layer to the copied image. I left the gradient at a background to foreground gradient. This turned the image to a black and white image. I reduced the Opacity to 70%. this allowed some of the color of the underlying image to come through.


Next I added in a layer of texture that I captured from within the iTunes Visualizer. This is it at Normal blend mode and 100% Opacity.



Then I changed the blend mode to Screen and left Opacity 100%. What I am doing is building up a rather noisy background to contrast with my silence to make the silence even "stronger."



Next I brought in another layer that I captured from the iTunes Visualizer. I turned off the visibility of the layers below this layer so you can see what it looks like at Normal mode and 100% Opacity. Much of the layer is transparent.



Then, I changed the layer blend mode to Linear Dodge and still at 100% Opacity.



For the next layer, I used the on-line program called Scribbler Too, that Kaylene, at Collage Obsession, mentioned in her collage for this week. Using Scribbler Too, I created this scribble. Here at normal mode and 100% Opacity.



I changed the blend mode to Subtract and Opacity to 30%. And this was enough for my noisy background.



Finally, I brought in my layer of silence. This is an image of the lake at sunrise when all is calm and quiet. This is my SILENCE.



All that was left to do was add in the title and subtitle and my signature.



That is how I created my silence for this layout.

Here it is



I hope you enjoyed seeing how I did this.


That's all for now.


Live life fully.


Earl
