Good Morning! Fall is in the air here in Tennessee, and believe it or not, I still have a few magnolia flowers blooming. A customer asked me recently about creating flower art and how I get the softness and cloud-like look. So I decided to do a short video for you guys. I hope this is helpful!
• It's all in the masking! Flower on top of texture, mask away edges using a large, round, soft brush.
• Mask right over the edges of petals and leaves, varying size and opacity of the brush
• Duplicate the bottom texture layer and put it on top - try various layer modes and opacities for that layer. This brings the color and texture of the actual texture right into your flower
• Use textures from different collections if desired. Mask away parts of the texture layer if necessary.
