Flypaper Textures

Grunge Hydrangea

I reprocessed this image for Mary’s article over at the Digital Photography School,  to help illustrate how using different textures on the same image can  completely change the feel of a photo, it’s one of the things textures are so useful for. The earlier version is much more soft, dreamy and subtle.
Anyway, here’s what I did…..

Catacomb Frieze @ Overlay 100% masked from the jug
Lyme Fossil @ Overlay 100% masked carefully from the focus areas as desired
It looked okay like this but to give it more of a grunge feel I added a Fly Edge
Fly Edge 13 @ Overlay 100% this layer was inverted using the invert adjustment layer and masked from the central portion so the grunge didn’t overwhelm the subject.
Catacomb Frieze and Lyme Fossil are from the Spring Painterly pack.

    Beautiful processing. Sounds very hard to do, but well worth it.
