A free textrure for you today!

Hi Everyone... Yes, I am still here. My creativity is still alive and well!
Not long ago, hubby and I snuck off for a weekend alone. I of course was playing with the camera on my iphone on one of our walks. So today I share with you one of the images I took. A perfectly good texture.
Taken with my Hipstamatic App. :0)

Photobucket


You can download HERE. Enjoy!!
One of the things I have been doing lately with my textures is this. Select a midtone color from the texture with your eye dropper tool. Select a soft brush and reduce the opacity of the texture a bit to see your subject underneath. (do this while you are still in normal mode) Paint directly on the texture with the selected color. This will keep the texture tone but get rid of the grungy bits on your focal point. Raise your opacity back up and finish the brushing. Now change your blend mode to soft light.
Easy Peazy!!

{hugs to everyone}

P. S. I did not include a TOU but you know the drill. Don't sell it as your own.

Thanks for the texture !! But ya do know that there is sooooooo many fun apps out there that you don't have to lose a beat being busy. Snap and play with your phone every free moment you get. Try instagram for one. So many trendy current photoshop action/lightroom preset looking filters to play with on your photos then post them easily and quickly to the forum and everyone will drool over them. Phones take great fine art pics too. just a heads up to keep ya' creative in a pinch. lol

Kim, I have so missed you but understand. I, too, have been involved in other things and know how involved we can get. I have my grandson now and life is definitely different but thankful to God for allowing him to be a part of His plan for my life. Blessings to you and yours.
