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 . . . Color . . . 18 March 2014


For this week's Texture Tuesday with Kim Klassen, Kim gave us:

Next Tuesdays theme ....Tuesday, March 18th
Color….


I was revisiting my blog for some of the Photoshop techniques that I have shown in the past. A couple of them caught my eye and I decided to use them in my creation for this week's Texture Tuesday.

My final textured image is this. I hope it is colorful enough.

To show you how I did this, I made this video of what I did.


Texture Tuesday - Color from Earl Kreins on Vimeo.

In the video I mentioned my two blog entries that I used. The first was making a Retro, Pop Art, and Funky Background. To go to this blog entry, CLICK HERE.

And the second was how to make your own basic seamless patterns. To go to my blog entry on seamless patterns, CLICK HERE.

I hope you enjoyed seeing how I did this. 

That's all for now.


Live life fully and enjoy.

Earl

Wow, very interesting to learn how this was done, I tried to follow along in PSE10, but got lost on the black and white adjustment layer. I bookmarked your site to come back and learn more. Thank you for sharing!!
