Introducing the Impressionist Spring Mini Pack Collection
I am SO EXCITED about this new mini pack, Impressionist Spring! Filled with all the colors of this wonderful season, this collection is amazingly versatile. I used one or more textures from this collection on all of the images shown here, both as backgrounds and as layers on top in various layer modes and opacities. The concept of using these textures is the same one I describe in my video on the tutorials page, "Working With The Nature Splash Collection". There's no reason to be exact with masking on these -- mask away parts of your subjects and bring the exciting, impressionist style texture right into and over your subjects to create a fun, painterly look.
The collection also works well with photos and photo layers when you use Topaz Impression to create painterly effects. In fact, I've used Topaz Impression on every one of these to some extent. I've even create a few "human" examples, to demonstrate how well these textures can work with people, too!
The collection began with 12 textures to form the mini pack, but then I thought it would be fun to create some colorful variations of the 12. Now the collection contains the original 12, plus one color variation of each, to make a total of 24 fun textures in this package.
Like this collection? Buy it here. Commercial Use OK.
