The Texture Touch

I am often amazed at how many barns, silos, and corn cribs survive mother nature year after year. This corn crib sets in a valley of corn fields.  It may have been wind and hail or heavy snowfall that caused the roof to collapse. I do hope it is repaired this summer.  How often do you see "mother nature's fury" as they call it, in your area?

  3. Reduce the opacity to half
  4. Add the heirloom #8 texture as the top layer
  5. Select the darken blending mode and set at 65% opacity
