I am thinking green this week in honour of St. Patrick’s Day. I took a photo of my cup of green tea in a green cup and saucer and then played around with some textures.
Straight out of the Camera
I need to brand my edits into my memory. I always fail to write down what exactly I do and always remember I am to do that after I have flattened it. The photo was put through Grant’s actions for a custom white balance. Then I do the layers adjustment for levels, saturation and brightness. Then I added a texture layer twice. I used Kim Klassen texture paper stained light because it had a green cast. I used multiply at 56% and then Overlay at 47%. I then dragged a copy of the background up to the top and desaturated it a bit with a adjustment layer. Have no idea what I am doing but I keep playing till I like it. It is finally flattened and saved.
I then remembered that I downloaded a lovely texture from Florabella this week from her facebook page that had shamrocks on it. I added it right over the edited version at opacity of 57% and added a little Irish saying. That is it.
I am joining Touch Up Tuesday with Paper Heart Camera for Touch Up Tuesday. Have a great day. Valerie
