Texture Tuesday

by Allison @ Alli 'n Son on May 23, 2011

It’s Texture Tuesday again, the day of the week I share with you my latest photo, inspired by Kim Klassen and her lovely textures.

This week’s challenge was to use the yesteryear texture. I couldn’t help but think that these tulips, dropping under the weight of a Spring shower, were just perfect for it.

Spring Tulip

Photoshop Layers

  1. Signature/watermark
  2. Pink fill, overlay blending mode, 31% opacity
  3. Ivory fill, color blending mode, 75% opacity
  4. yesteryear texture, soft light blending mode, 100% opacity
  5. Levels layer to add contrast to the flower
  6. Hue/Saturation adjustment layer to bump up saturation on the flower
  7. Background layer: Photo

Goodness! simply lovely! The tulips dried out on me this spring :( This matches your theme perfectly too! Love the water droplets as well!

Thanks Mirage! With our super cold spring I didn’t think ours would make it either, but they surprised me.

Lovely job, and I do appreciate the steps you took to get it. I have learned so much by observing what others do and how they do it, with their processing. I love the after-rain effect.
