This Week's Free Texture

A warm, double kiss embrace going out to all who participated in last week's Photo Art Friday!  I'm so grateful for your participation - and so many inspiring images!!  Thank you ALL.

Last year at this time I had two broken bones in my arm near my wrist.  The photograph below was taken one-handed out of a moving car, during that time.  Due to that it's not a great photo, BUT with the addition of a texture to give it a vintage feel it becomes a viable little piece of photo art!

 This version has the texture Faded Fresco added and processed in Luminosity blend mode at 75% opacity.

 This version employs the same texture in Screen blend mode at 85% opacity.

This is the pdpa Faded Fresco texture used above and you can add it to your collection of textures by clicking HERE.  Enjoy! 

(Remember, if you try to simply click on the image in the post and 'save as' you are getting a 72 dpi image.  When you download it by clicking 'HERE' you get a 300 dpi image which is what you want for superior quality images.)
