For this week, I selected a photo that I had taken at the Lauritzen Gardens, Omaha, Nebraska.
I didn't want the little label in the image, so I used the Clone Stamp Tool to eliminate it. Then I used the Filter>Render>Lighting Effects filter to highlight the flowers and have the background darker. I also used the free transform to have the image fit into a 12 x 12-inch, 300 ppi, image.
Since in last week's Texture Tuesday I was free & easy with the Pencil Tool and made a drawing with it . . . today I used the Freeform Pen Tool and drew a single path flower. Since It was a path, I was able to smooth out some of my drawing wiggles. I colored in the flower using the Magic Wand Tool to select parts of the flower and used gradient adjustment layers to color the flower. I also gave it a drop shadow.
I placed my hand-drawn flower into my image. I left It at Normal blend mode and 100% Opacity.
Next, I brought in one of Kim's magic textures, kk_magictexture2bl, setting its Blend Mode to Screen . . . Opacity 100%.
And, to finish it, I added Kim's texture kk_steelish . . . Soft Light, 100% Opacity.
That's it for now.
Live life fully.
