Still adding TEXTURE to our images.

Click on any image for a bigger view.

Take an ordinary image and make it extraordinary!!

A plain ole tree, all alone. I added about 4 if not 5 different textures to this image. They were all added on separate layers above the tree picture. Changing blend modes and lowering opacities as I went. This look is very in right now. Remember you can erase the areas that you don't want to have texture.
I hope you give your kreative juices a try!!

Here is a site with some really great free grunge textures.
Matt's lightroom killer tips has a wonderful free grunge texture. It is on the post dated January 28th, at the bottom of the page. It says click here to download the aged texture image.
That one is on my image.

I have a free scrap paper with a texture overlay added that will be available Friday morning.
...see you then!!

As promised for you Kimi and to everyone else using Kimi's tutorial. This texture that I'm giving away as FREEBIE is a picture of my one and only Pampered Chef Cookie Pan Stoneware. Awesome look after some and wear and tear. It gets used daily, not just because of cookies, but dino chicken nuggets, fish sticks and french fries. I use this texture predominately to simulate the Holga camera effect (oooh, now that is something look up!!!). Enjoy!!
