My Go-To Processing Technique

This week's Photo Art Friday theme over at Pixel Dust Photo Art is to share a piece of photo art that has been made using one of your favorite, "go-to" editing/processing techniques. Well, My absolute favorite editing/processing technique is to apply a texture layer and try different blend modes and opacities until I find what works for my picture. I will repeat this process with different textures until I am satisfied with the results. Here I used pdpa_Soft_Echoes texture in saturation blend mode at 43% opacity and pdpa_Feelings texture in overlay blend mode at 58% opacity. Many thanks to Bonnie over at Pixel Dust Photo Art for sharing these textures!

Soft and lovely - and a process I follow as well. Lots of clicking and changing opacity and experimenting, but it's all so much fun!

By the way I used your Autumn Grunge texture for my PAF post. Loved how it turned out.

Your Black-eyed Susan is gorgeous, and the application of the texture a great choice.
