Texture Tuesday - 01 22 2013

My free and easy texture use for Texture Tuesday.

I just love these awesome, lucky suitcase finds of mine.  They've been a great asset to my 'sometimes portrait sessions' especially with the little ones.  And the fragrance.  You know the one?  Reminds me of my grandma.  The sunflower...another prop that just seems to love to rest right amidst the yellows and reds of the suitcase.

I added a preset of aged photo in LR, took into PSE and duplicated the layer in multipy mode and lowered the opacity.  Then I added a layer of KK-ugglovebandw.  Awesome crackly texture making the old suitcases..even more antiquated and awesome...if I do say so myself!!!


  1. I love the texture you used on this shot. Perfect for an old suitcase or trunk from yesteryear. And I really love the Ansel Adams quote in your header.

    1. Thank you so much. I love the old vintage stuff.
