The theme of this week’s meme is Create your Own Texture and layer it over a simple image.
The original leaf photo is here:
The photo I used for texture(“fossils” in grey rock) is here:
I softened the texture with a few filters(blur and something else I don’t remember!) and then layered it over the leaf photo in PSE. I found that the usual layer modes like overlay, screen and soft light didn’t work well, but hard mix worked great.
The first attempt was a bit extreme so I toned down the opacity of the texture for the next 2:
Of course I couldn’t stop here so I used the texture on 2 flower photos too:
Who knew that the photo of the “fossil” could work so nicely as a texture to create abstracts??
