I "get" how to use textures. I get how to use the various blending modes, adjust opacities...it all makes sense. But for some reason I can't put it into practice. I want my textured shots to look more like art, not just a photograph with a big mess of texture on top of it.
So I figured the best way would be just to jump in there and give it a shot.
You won't laugh at my first attempt, will you?
I'm totally going to re-do this with steam coming out. Don't you think that would be cool?
Maybe one day (soon??) I'll look back and shake my head at this first feeble attempt - LOL! :-) But this isn't something I've experimented with much before, so there will be a bit of a learning curve.
Stay tuned for improvement, 'k?
