Hello there! How are you today? I hope you'll drop me a comment today and tell me what you're up to. I'm looking forward to a day at home. Yesterday started with a bang. My nineteen year old college sophomore son was diagnosed with pneumonia. Of course, I spent the day running him to the doctor, whose appointment secretary insisted that there was no record of him having ever been a patient there. It turns out that she looked up the wrong name. That'll do it every time :)
I'm so happy you are joining me for Texture Tuesday. To find out what it's all about, and to see many wonderful examples of digital art, please pay Kim a visit at Kim Klassen Cafe. Thank you, Kim, for providing us with such wonderful photoshop textures and inspiration!
This week's theme is Love. It took me awhile to figure out how to approach this. I went through my photos and finally, this one jumped out at me. It is yet another one I took in Maine. The lovely pair of flowers reminds me of the beauty of two hearts joined in love. Not even when parted in death does their story end. It lives on in the hearts and souls of all who loved and were loved by them. It's effects spread out like ripples on the water.
I used one layer of Kim's Scripted Edges texture set to Linear Dodge over the photo. I added a layer mask to the texture layer and brushed the texture away from just the pink blossoms. It seemed to help bring them forward. The font for the word "love" is Felt Pen. The layer is set to Screen at 73 percent opacity. The font for the rest of the text is Porcelain, set to Normal.
Thank you so much for visiting!
Until next time,
