A Quick Hello

Hi Everyone!

A quick post to let you know I'm thinking about you.  Created this sweet texture this afternoon and want to pass it on to all of my favourite photo artists.

This texture/background is called "Light Source".  You can apply it to your photographs as a texture or use it as a background for a composite piece of photo art.  I just love it! Let me show you how I used it this afternoon.

 I selected this SOOC photo of gerberas from my front porch on which to apply the texture.  

 Here is the result.  Used the blend mode of Pin Light at 70% opacity.  How easy is that?!

For an extra dash of photo art panache, I applied my go-to PS filter, Poster Edges.  Love it!

No, I didn't forget ... 
You can download pdpa Light Source texture HERE.  

Thank you for all your recent comments and emails with good wishes.  My health is slowly improving.  In case you missed my previous post, Photo Art Friday is on hiatus until the Fall, but as you see, this blog is not on hiatus.  I will be posting regularly. See you soon!  Be well.

  13. "Bonnie Zieman" has been included in our third edition of Thinking of Christmas Gifts in July 2014. Be assured that we hope this helps to point many new customers in your direction.


  14. Was looking around my blog and spotted your button and hadn't been to visit. Hope you're doing better. And was thrilled to see when I visited a new texture. Thank you so much, but truly was just hoping things are going better and we'll be seeing more of you and your art meme maybe this Fall/Winter. Have a great week.

  15. Well, guess I should have looked at the comments. I already have the Texture from June. :)

  16. Thanks again for another fabulous texture, you're generosity is truly appreciated. I hope you're feeling better. Take care.

    Capture life!

  17. Checking in on you! How are you??

  18. It makes enough sense to understand that it is wise to outsource Photo retouching service to a firm rather than trying to perform them by self. view publisher site

While I do appreciate the honor, I do not accept awards or participate in assigned memes. Thanks for understanding. :)
