Three Free Textures for YOU

It's that busy time of year.  Are you in the midst of all your holiday preparations?  Hope you haven't forgotten to take a photograph or two of your pre-holiday activities!  That's our theme for this week's, soon-to-arrive Photo Art Friday

The theme can be as broad as you want to stretch it - so could include shopping, traffic, people walking with their parcels, children writing to Santa, baking, decorating, gift-wrapping, card writing, etc. etc.  Can't wait to see what you all come up with!

This is a collage featuring two textures I'm about to share with you and three applications of them to one photo.  Don't hold me to it, but I believe they were blended in Hard Light, Color Burn and Difference.  You can, of course, blend these textures with your photograph in Soft Light, Screen or Lighter Color for a more desaturated look if that is what you prefer.

Let me introduce you to pdpa Vintage Wine Label texture.  It's sure to add a vintage feel to your photographs.  You can download the high resolution version by clicking HERE.

And this is pdpa Intensify texture - and that is exactly what it will do for your photos.  Don't worry it is not too strong!  Try it in all the blend modes.  I love the painterly effect you get along with the intensified colors.  You can download the high resolution version of Intensify HERE.

And for those of you who like a texture with a little French script on it, here's one for you:

This is pdpa Lover's Lament texture.  It will not, however, cause any 'lament' when you apply it to the right photograph.  Download the free, high resolution version HERE.

Can't wait to see what you create with these three great textures.  Enjoy!

See you at our virtual gallery showcase on Friday (Thursday evening for you earlybirds!).
