The Texture Touch: Sweet Hearts

Before and After Edition

texture.ology:
  1. layer the cinnamon texture on top of your photograph
  2. set the blending mode of the texture to darken
  3. lower the opacity of the texture to 60%
  4. add fading script as the 2nd texture layer
  5. set the blending of this layer to overlay
  6. reduce the opacity of the 2nd texture to 50%


I was stirring my hot cocoa made with Mom's recipe the other day and fell in love with the sweet heart shapes of the cinnamon sticks. Have you ever noticed that?
