The Daily Texture for 04/10/2016
Today's Daily Texture is a bold, abstract one, filled with luscious purples, lavenders, lilacs and a touch of gold and green. It was the perfect texture to blend with this photo of some wild wisteria I took a couple weeks ago. The photo as a whole wasn't that great, but this one section of flower was good. By blending in just that one section with this abstract spring texture, I was able to turn it into a full size work of art! I used the texture as a background, and also as a soft light layer on top at 100%. Then I added the words to the finished piece with one of my pencil brushes.
