Texture Layering

I have been enjoying photoshop since I first tried it almost a year ago, the same time my husband, Doods, bought me a camera. But I have never done photo layering. I've heard about it, but never bothered to find out how it's done. Today, I discover a link in Ann's blog that pulled up a site that generously shares not only tutorials on photo layering, but magnificent textures for layering as well. Am thrilled!

My gratitude to Jerry Jones of ShadowHouse Creations for generously sharing the textures and giving free tutorials in texture layering. Amazing effects, Jerry. Brilliant blog site! You are quite the guru. Thanks!

Thank you also, Ann, for sharing the link with us.

Here's my first ever attempt at texture layering. I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to more!

I think a photography class should be a requirement in all educational programs because it makes you see the world rather than just look at it.

Good job Tess. I have not tried this technique, am more conservative.

P.S. I hope you will enjoy Zee's blog. She's got lots of freebies and a great tutor.

Hi Tess. I use photoshop sometimes and I have looked at layering many times but still find it difficult . I saw that site before and I have to go there again if I want to layer my photo's

I have Photoshop Elements. I've read about layering but have done very little with it. I've been wanting to buy Photoshop, but it's too expensive :-(

Tes: A very interesting result, thanks for sharing.

Wonderful photo. I must get up the courage and "broaden my horizons" so to speak about photography. All I do is snap photos with my little camera. After seeing everyone's great photos on their blogs I am becoming more intrigued. Have a great day Tes!

Your first attempt at texture layering is absolutely fabulous. Thanks for sharing these links with us. I'm hoping we can learn to use some of these techniques.
