Lovely! Thanks for sharing your technique..... always nice to learn from others! I love the texture :)
oooh, lovely! I think this one is my favorite, but maybe that's because I was born in Seattle.
Beautiful colours and texture Pamela!
Thank you, Pamela, for all the details! This multilayer-staff is all very new to me but I realize that I need to add some depth to my designs so itÂ´s time to start experimenting :)
This is actually the result of multiple layers, some on my desktop and some using Picmonkey (the tool that SF links to). I could do it all on my desktop but I was checking out some of the textures and tweaks that they have. I start by creating two large background layers in different colors from the background and each other and applied a tighter weave transparent texture to the bottom layer than on the top so it will peek through. I drew the weave texture that I use so I could control the repeats so they fit on my images. After drawing the outlines and creating color layers under them, I opened them in Picmonkey, tweaked the colors and contrasts a little and added a weave texture twice - once as a lighter weave and the second time as a darker weave. You need to experiment until you have the percentages and depth that you want. Again, I could do this on my desktop with upper texture layers and transparent effects, but I was having some fun trying out the tool. Downside of using Picmonkey is that the PNGs it creates are incompatible with my Adobe tools so I can't edit them on my desktop if I do this.
Great pattern and gorgeous colour-combinations! How do you make that woven pattern in the background?
