Texture Tuesday: Little Things
Today's Texture Tuesday challenge was simply to use Kim's 'little things' texture. As I considered a subject matter for the photo, I remembered this photo of a monarch butterfly that I took last summer. Seeing as it is a 'little thing' itself, I thought it would be perfect. I opened Photoshop Elements and I started to play. I tend to fall back on the same few blend modes when I apply textures (usually soft light, screen or multiply at varying opacities depending on the image I'm striving to achieve), but this time I was just exploring some of the other options when I came across 'difference'. I thought it created a wonderfully intriguing change to the image. So much so, in fact, that it has inspired me to create a piece of fibre art with this image. I love the colours that resulted in the altered image. I'm not sure the direction this piece will take, but I will certainly share it as it progresses. For now, go ahead and mouse over the image to see the original photo.
