Texture Tuesday ... On Friday
I've finally had some time this week to delve into Photoshop and really begin to learn and explore all that it has to offer. One of the things I wanted to learn first was how to apply textures to my photos and use layers. I was referred to Kim Klassen and I was able to explore her site this week. Wow! If you are looking for great tutorials on how to apply textures in Photoshop, her site is a wealth of information. Her work is stunning and every photo is truly a work of art.
I went to her Textures in Ten Classroom and used the FREE tutorials. My final image is above! I'm in love with the result!! I photographed this beautiful Magnolia flower down the road at one of our local parks. The tree was loaded with flowers and the fragrance was euphoric. I just love how this photo turned out. I applied two of Kim's textures, first Be still and then Faved.
I also learned this cool mouseover photo trick from Project Alicia. You can mouse over my photo to see the original SOOC shot. I have copied the code below if you want to give this trick a try for yourself, or you can find it on Alicia's site here.

I'm off to walk my pup. It's a bit cool here today, but the sun is shining brilliantly!
Have a great weekend!
