REDISCOVERING MYSELF THROUGH PHOTOGRAPHY

Into the Light

This week's Beyond Layers II challenge is to shoot into the light and then add texture to the image.  I photographed a black-eyed Susan, a rose, a tomato blossom, and a "silver" petunia. The petunia seems to work the best.

I desaturated the image slightly and then applied KK Paris Texture with multiply blending mode at 62%. I duplicated the layer  and chose soft light at 62%.  This gave me the "words" I desired.  The second texture is KK Soft and Sanded ShakespeareanSonnet, which I stretched to remove the text and blended at soft light 61%.

I'm still learning all this texture stuff and a lot of the terms you use are still Greek to me! LOL!!

I have never seen a silver petunia! Love the wording on the texture. It's always nice to see fuzz on a plant also. :)
