Today's Daily Texture is another brushstrokes creation, this time with vibrant spring colors for all of your images from this wonderful season. I used the "Spring Splash" texture on the example images below. On the tulips image, I placed the tulip flower on top of the texture and masked away the background. Then I duplicated the tulip layer 2 times, and made each one a little smaller than the first, positioning them to line up across the middle. To finish it off, I duplicated the texture layer again, placed it on top, and set it to soft light layer mode at about 70%. On the Lhasa Apso art, I placed her image on top of the texture and masked away her background. I masked away some of her fur very gently to bring the texture colors into the fur. I didn't add the texture as a new layer on top on this one...I liked the soft and subtle look of using it as a background only.
