Lenten Rose with Texture
Our Lenten Rose are finishing up, but this one caught my eye. Most of these flowers are bashful and keep their heads down, but this one was looking toward the heavens, creating a sexy little curve with the stem. The texture comes from a stucco wall that I photographed a few years ago. Once the flower image was opened in Photoshop, the wall image was layered on top and the blend mode changed to ‘Linear Burn’. Adjusting the opacity of the ‘texture’ layer finished the job. I’m always interested in how others apply textures, so feel free to share your techniques.
