Hello Weekend

My word for 2011 is define.  In order to define something you must first observe.  I invite you to observe my creative process at LAB 101. It is a place where creativity is observed, examined, and quantified. Download my Lab creations on the Goodies Page or learn a new Photoshop technique on the Video Page!  And get to know your Lab partners on the Roll Call Page.
 


Antique your image by layering the Thunder Cloud texture on a blending mode of hue at about 50% opacity.  Duplicate the layer using hot keys - Ctrl J and change the blending mode to multiply at full opacity.  To add touch of script layer the Postale texture on a hard light blending mode at half opacity. Download the Observations tutorial on the screencast page!

  23. Morning Kristy

    I have used one of your textures and will post it on my blog. I used picnik as I don't have photoshop, I do have Corel Paintshop Pro Photo X1 and I still cannot get the hang of layering with it!!
    I collect old postcards which is why I bought those textures from you, also I love the Carte postale design I have a butler tray in it.

    I'm a budding photographer and love playing with filters - it's the funnest part for me. I'm so looking forward to going through your blog.

    Right now I consider myself and iphoneographer... but I'd love to learn photoshop. Thanks for documenting your processes!
