Some of you have been asking, hinting, hoping....... And I've been listening!!! So, in honor of leap year, & in an effort to beat away the winter blahs, all textures will be 40% off today, Thursday (February 28) through Sunday (March 2). Now is your chance to grab these sets & play around, or learn how to get on the texture scene! Some samples from the Patterns & Swirls set.


And another...

~Patterns & Swirls #9

In the first example, I used the overlay blending mode & set opacity to 58. I then used the eliptical marquee tool with pixels set to 60, to erase the texture from the faces. Using the marquee tool creates a softer transition from the texture area to the face. In the second example, I used the hard light blending mode. Again, I used the eliptical marquee tool on the face & the eraser tool on the hair.

I LOVE flowers!! And I especially love flowers in February after weeks of winter gray!! So I picked up this bouquet of pink mini gerbera daisies & had fun with my macro lens! And just for good measure, I pulled some of my textures on top!! When I look at these shots, I tell myself that spring is right around the corner!
