{Texture Tuesday} The Warm eDition


mouse over to see the original


Hello friends,

It's time for another Texture Tuesday! 

Here are this week's TT challenge details.

  • Share an image centered around the word, warmth . Also, your image must contain at least one layer of any of my textures. 

My image recipe 

why did I choose this image for the Warm-eDition? Because it was shot in our dining room... full of warm wood...from woodwork to wood floors.... it's what I think of when I think of warm. :) 

  • Open the image in photoshop. 
  • Duplicate the background layer....or CS users can convert the background for smart filters. Apply a gaussian blur filter at about 8 px...this will vary depending on your image resolution. Change the layer blend mode to overlay and lower the opacity to about 65%.
  • Add a hue/sat adjustment layer and reduced the saturation in the red channel. 
  • Add a photo filter layer at warming filter 85 and lowered the layer blend mode to 45% opacity. 
  • Add a layer of Sunday at soft light 100% opacity and another layer of Sunday at multiply 55% opacity.
  • Add a black and white adjustment layer or a black to white gradient map will work also....and lowered the opacity to 33%.
  • Duplicate the black and white adjustment layer and changed the blend mode to soft light at 33% opacity.
  • Add the type if you like.
  • The End.

Before we start linking up. Let's talk next week's TT details.

Next week's TT theme. (June 5th)

How 'bout a quote theme?

Share an image with one of your favorite quotes included and as always... any one of my textures.

Have fun!

I am super lucky as my wildest dreams were to travel the world and I doing just that. So I am a believer - dreams do come true!
That's so pretty editing!
