I've been busy making new textures and then making some photo art using them. Each texture in this new set of six contains a figure. The backgrounds in the textures give a painterly effect to any photo to which they are applied. Here are a few examples of what can be done with these textures.
Applied a new texture, "l'ennui" to my reliable old texture-tester pear photograph. Here's what I did to achieve this effect:
Apply texture to photograph of pear
Blend in Hard Light 100%
Levels Adjustment to darken
Filter>Strokes>Ink Lines>20% Opacity
Filter>Artistic>Dry Brush>27% Opacity
Filter>Artistic>Poster Edges>32% Opacity
"l'ennui" is part of a new set of textures that is available now in my Texture Sets Shoppe. Click on the image for a larger view!

4. Over The Ocean
6. Excuse Me
pdpa l'ennui texture
Added "The Vapors" texture from the "Artsy Apparitions" Texture Set to this image of angel that you have seen posted here before. I love that with "l'ennui" and "The Vapors" you can have her arm and hand reaching out to touch something in your photograph.
Again "The Vapors" texture applied to photograph of a rainbow shining down on a field.
pdpa Over The Ocean texture
Over The Ocean added to image of the Richelieu River near my home. Followed much the same recipe (process, not necessarily blend or opacity selections) as given above for the pear.
Added Over The Ocean to public domain image of passageway in a derelict building. A photograph of barren tree branches, another texture of text and blending in Difference Blend Mode. A Levels Adjustment was made and applied RadLab Punch Out and Prettyizer effects finishes off a rather haunting, mysterious piece of photo art.
There is lots of fun to be had in your photo-art-making adventures using Artsy Apparitions Texture Set. You can check it out HERE.
Hope you are having some happy photo art surprises that you can share with us at our next Photo Art Friday!
