The Daily Texture for 05/04/2015
Today's Daily Texture celebrates the beautiful red roses blooming here, with gorgeous red and pink tones throughout. I used the texture as the background on the rose photo below, and added two additional layers of the texture on top -- one as a hard light layer mode at 30% and another as a soft light layer mode at 30%. I also couldn't resist using the texture on this sweet photo of a friend's little girl as she looked for flowers in a field. I used several layers of the texture on top of the original photo, which I desaturated in order to allow it to pick up the tones from the texture layers. Also, I flipped the first texture layer upside down in order to put the light from the texture at the bottom of the photo, as the original photo was dark on top with the light on the bottom.
