Hi Everyone! Hope you are all finding ways to stay cool, calm and collected during this heat wave. I'm blessed with 'air' and am so grateful. After I give a long, slightly cool drink of water to my outdoor potted plants, I plan to work indoors today.
Tomorrow evening the doors to our virtual art gallery open. Are you ready to hang your photo art?
You can hang anything you feel qualifies as 'artful' and we also have the prompt to hang a vintage-looking piece of photo art.
I've already been working on making some recent photos taken in my garden look vintage. I used this new texture, pdpa vintage craquelure with great results. So ... had to share it with you:
To download a free, high resolution copy of pdpa Vintage Craquelure texture, click HERE.
Three of the last four textures offered here as freebies (Nitty Gritty, Age It and Vintage Craquelure) are all great for giving any photograph a vintage feel. So with them and the skills you have tucked up your artistic sleeve you should be able to produce some great vintage pieces to share tomorrow.
Can't wait!! No literally, I can't wait. I want to show you what today's free texture can do ... Take a look (don't forget to click to enlarge!):
After edits to fade and blur the photograph, I added pdpa Vintage Craquelure texture blending it in Hard Light and reducing the opacity of the blend to 80%. A layer mask was used to remove only some of the texture from the flower (using a soft brush at 15% opacity).
I'll be looking for you tomorrow at Photo Art Friday!
