 Texture



I Use PSE8, about the same process for other layer programs.
Wacom Intuos PTK 640
Texture Heavens Blush @ shadowhousecreations.blogspot.com/

1 Open photo and Texture file
2 Copy background layer ( Ctrl j ) ( mouse rt click on background and select duplicate layer, I crop and adjust on this layer
3 Open Heavens Blush (HB) file drag into photo it will create a layer. This will hide your photo don't panic, we will come back to this step.
4 Create 3 copies of heavens blush layer. see 2 for how to ( Ctrl j )
5 Close all Heavens Blush copies, left click on the eye at right
6 With the layer next to background, Heavens Blush layer open,
**go to blending mode located above copy 3 L/H side and it is labeled Normal, open window and select Soft Light. Your photo will appear, select the eraser, soft round, size 700px, Opacity 35%, gently erase unwanted texture. Best results use Wacom Pin

7 Open (HB) copy click on eye the photo will disappear, go to blending mode at step 6 and repeat **
8 Open (HB) copy 2 see step 7 and repeat
9 Open (HB) copy 3 set blending to Hard Light and repeat step 7
Leave Opacity at 100% on all layers, If to dark adjust in step 9

I think this will work with all textures, If to dark eliminate a layer or reduce Opacity from 100%.
Try and eliminate lines as you erase, you may have to reduce eraser size and Opacity %. If you see lines undo and try again.
