Project - Themed Projects : Notes from my 31st Year

Galleries: Scrapbooking

<p>Lately I've been inspired by <a target=“_blank” href="http://flickr.com/photos/dreamincolour/ [flickr.com]“>Beth Retro</a>'s photography – she layers beautiful bokeh textures over her images for a dreamy quality.&nbsp; Turns out it's pretty easy with photoshop and the result turns a somewhat blah picture into something quite ethereal.&nbsp; Definitely worth a play!&nbsp; Here's what I did:</p>
<p>*Open your photo in Photoshop.</p>
<p>*Open a second photo with the bokeh texture, like .</p>
<p>*Select all of the texture photo and copy it.&nbsp;</p>
<p>*Move back to your original photo.</p>
<p>*Paste the texture as a new layer.</p>
<p>*Move the opacity of that layer down until you're happy with the amount that shows through – somewhere between 20 and 40% most likely.</p>
<p>*Flatten those layers and then tweak anything else you would like, like adjusting the hues to be warmer, cooler, brighter, paler, etc.</p>
<p>*Print your photo and get scrapping!</p>
<p>&nbsp;</p>
<p>It seemed appropriate that if we're scrapping ourselves, we should include lots of supplies that we love – these are patterns and colours that make me squeal in delight.</p>
