photoshop textures.

…I can’t remember how I found kim klassen’s website, but I’ve been following along for several weeks now and I’m just in love with what she can do to a photo. last weekend she posted these beautiful textures and I’ve been waiting for the right photo to use them. yesterday seemed to offer a good opportunity. it was cold, and we had snow flurries on and off all afternoon and into the evening. I loved the way our tree looked from the deck, so warm and inviting.

and I’m really excited about the image I created.

I ended up using silent night 2 – and I used it twice. once as a photo overlay (on 100% opacity) and then again as a normal layer. it was really a happy accident. I’d planned to use the texture as background paper, behind the photo (with the overlay), but when I copied it into my photoshop file, it landed as the very top layer. and now I’ve spent way more time on this than I have. christmas knitting awaits!!
