A Texture Tutorial

Skeletal Mess (aka Ghostbones) has posted a wonderful tutorial about how he processes his Art. Not at all what I was doing! Do go and give it at try! I just love it when I am learning something new!
Here is the tutorial. The Resting Place
I also just posted it as kimi's Kreative homework #68, so do check in if you get a chance and let's see what the others have come up with. =)

Here is my take on his instructions.
Photobucket

I used the same two suggested textures with the same opacities that he used. I did have to go back and use levels to lighten it after changing my blend mode to multiply. Lastly I used the burn tool and burned around the edges. See how the dark edges make your eyes go inward?

Happy Weekend Everyone!!

Kimi,

Thanks for showing us this tut, I put the results up on the Homework page.

I do think it was much better with the levels and burning touches you added.

Kimi,
Love, love, love this! I collect photos of crosses and churches and this has to be one of my favorites! I'll have to try this technique on one that I have taken.

Would you allow me to add your beautiful image to my collection of favorites?

I'm sorry I had duplicate posts on here. I'm not sure what happened, but I deleted the extras!

ah, another homework assignment ... your photo is gorgeous! I'll put up my result at the forum.
I also wanted to let you know that I added a link to your "black and white processing" tutorial in my last blog post (my blog: http://peggy-s.blogspot.com/), I hope that's okay.
