For this week's Texture Tuesday over at Kim Klassen Cafe I tried something new - new for me at least.
Several months ago, Rinda sent me some book pages that are printed in the old German style. I scanned one of them and then used Kim's texture "vintagetexture" to make the book page more vintage and use it as my texture.
The photo of the birdbath is really boring and not even good. But I love this birdbath. So I did a levels adjustment and then blended it with "my" texture in soft light at 46%. Using a layer mask I removed the texture from the birdbath. Then I added one of Bonnie's texture "evelyn inspired" in soft light at 100%. Again, I used a layer mask to remove the texture from the birdbath, and in a final step I made a hue/saturation adjustment.
Here is the original photo (I would do a bit more adjustments to this photo first if I had to do it again):
Quite a difference...
