Free Texture Time!

It's cold and snowing here in the NorthEast today.  A good day to hunker down, make a big pot of nourishing soup (borscht is on the menu here), and tackle some household design/re-organization projects I've had in mind for a while.

Before I begin the heavy lifting ...  :) ... there's a pretty, new texture I want to share with you.  It's called Sweet Secret ... for no particular reason ... perhaps because I have a few.  Don't we all?  Here it is applied to my old texture-testing pear:

Texture applied to pear and blended in Vivid Light at 85% Opacity.  A Layer Mask and soft brush was used to remove the texture from the pear itself.  A Layers Adjustment was made to slightly increase the Saturation.

  1. This looks like another good one. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Wonderful texture, wonderful pear! Not snowing in this piece of the Northeast, cold but sunny. But I did make a big pot of mushroom barley soup yesterday--yum!

  3. Thank you Bonnie, had fun last night discovering one of your old posts about creating your texture from a collage of worked a dream on some rural photographs I had. Cheers

  4. beautiful texture, thank you . . .

  5. Thanks Bonnie - this looks rather dreamy! =D

  6. How pretty! - I am still struggling with trying to figure out how to do a layer mask (I use Gimp) and don't know if I'll ever acheive success.

  7. What a beautiful texture this is!
    Thank you so very much for sharing it here.
