The Daily Texture for 01/29/2015
Spring is on the way here in Tennessee, so I thought I'd release a lovely spring texture today! "Berries In The Sun" has a variety of spring colors in yellow, green, pink and purple. I used this texture on the lovely little Robin eating berries below. I masked the texture strongly off the bird, but only gently masked it off the berries in the background...just to show a hint of his surroundings. I also used this texture on Spring Cherry Blossoms. I masked the texture softly away from the center of the flowers, but left the texture very strong everywhere else. Then I duplicated the main texture layer, placed it on top and mirror-imaged plus flipped it to change the orientation of the texture coloring around. Then I set that layer to overlay at 100% to make the photo pop with vibrant color. So who else is ready for Spring?
