From Postcard To Background

Posted on July 07, 2014 by Leslie Nicole | 5 Comments

Use textures and digital postcards to create a unique background for your image.

For this self-portrait, I used the textures, Grit and Timeless from the Glorious Grunge collection and the digital postcard, Roses and Campanula.

By using layer masks, varying the opacity and saturation, and rotating and flipping the postcard, I was able to add the flowers in a way that fit this image exactly as I wanted.
