I’ve been doing a 4 week project on one of my dams (in other places around the world you would call it a pond), and decided to combine 2 of the images. I liked the result but then added a few bits and pieces from the PS Artistry Course and used a brush to reveal the background white layer.
Leanne Cole made some textures last week that she shared both the textures and the method of making them on her blog www.leannecole.wordpress.com on Tuesday 2 July 2013. This is one of the textures called “crumpled” used on both images. The one above uses ‘difference’ blending mode and the one below ‘exclusion’ blending mode. I couldn’t believe the difference and love both of the effects. The first is dark and moody, second has an oriental feel to it and I had to put a frame around it. The original image was of reeds in the dam.
