Jan 19: 366-19 Rug Back

The kennel manager, Jeri, isn’t a gal to leave a stone – or a rug – unturned.  When she figured out what I was doing prowling the kennel with my camera (and not photographing the dogs!) she rose to the occasion and shotgunned a lot of textures to me!  This is the non-skid backing of the rug featured in yesterday’s Free Texture post.  This is one to get the creative juices really flowing …

Texture 366-19 Rug Back

Now if this doesn’t get you thinking, I hope it’s just an off night for you … we all have those, and then we get right back into the game.  I just used this image of a Boxer puppy in a post at my DogBreedz Photo Blog so it came to mind first as a clean slate to use for today’s texture.  I used the texture in two separate layers and tweaked the hue and saturation in two different directions on each texture layer.  One I kept over the backdrop and the other I used for the white table covering.  I’m a huge fan of the monochromatic color look (white dog on white backdrop) but this gave a great funky look to the image.  One image, two completely different looks!

Hmm …. I wonder how this polkadot texture would look to turn the boxer pup in to a dalmatian wannabe?

Jan 12: 366-12 Paper

Oooh!  I am SO excited about today’s texture and tutorial – so very cool!  To start – here’s my free texture for you (and then on to the directions on how to do something similar yourself).  Here’s another Paper Texture to add to your growing collection:

 

Texture 366-12 Paper

I just LOVE how this turned out!  This is built upon the Paper Texture that was offered to you in my January 8 blog post.  On top of it I used a photo I had on file of a wonderful field of sunflowers that I came across while driving across North Dakota in 2010 (actually – the whole darned state seemed to be nothing but sunflower fields – miles and miles of them – amazing).  Jay Hilgert over at BittBox.com put up this tutorial … it’s so easy to follow and INCREDIBLY AWESOME to boot!  Take a look at it, located at http://www.bittbox.com/photoshop/photoshop-101-how-i-do-it-unique-texture-without-using-brushes .  I will caution you on one thing however … Jay mentions crawling the ‘Net for a cool-looking nebula photo.  PLEASE – if you do this, be sure that the image you lift is one that has given you permission to do that lifting!  Otherwise you are stealing and that is so incredibly NOT cool …   Back to today’s lesson, here is a cutie Dalmatian pup that I used to illustrate using this texturized image as a background.

Please do post links to how you made use of this tutorial – whether you use my new texture image or create your own.  We wanna see them!   Feedback is welcomed.  All textures are available for personal or commercial use.
