Thanks to Ashley Sisk, I discovered another cool site: Kim Klassen Cafe. I encourage you to check it out. Kim provides video tutorials and free downloadable textures. I’ve always wanted to try adding textures to an image and so here it is. My 10-minute first attempt looks very raw and nowhere near as awesome as Kim’s examples but I definitely like the technique.
I used a combination of LR3 and PSE8 to edit the image. Here’s the SOOC image:
On a side note, I used the same image as an example for The Paper Mama’s brown photo challenge where I was guest judge in between hosting a send off for my husband’s daughter (who is off to Australia in a few days), celebrating my youngest son’s 3rd birthday and getting ready for my other son’s 1st day in JK. What a busy week it’s been!
