Playing with Pink


Today's Texture Tuesday theme is "pink" and pink is just everywhere these days. My pink dogwoods are blooming now and I am going to get some shots of them later this morning.

This shot of my neighbor's pink lilac shrub was another capture from my morning walk. I masked out out the background using Topaz Labs Remask plugin. What an awesome tool this is! It certainly makes creating textured botanical pieces a whole lot easier.

Topaz Labs offers great webinars and tutorials on their plugins. If you have any Topaz products, you need to make time to watch their videos. I learn so much every time. I'm sort of a jump in and start playing kind of person, and while I learn a great deal through my mistakes and doing things the hard way, there is a point where a good solid tutorial is needed to gain proficiency. I love to play with an application or plugin for a while and then watch the tutorials. I've watched this one on the Remask plugin more than once.

For texture, I used Kim's newest "Be Still" and also "Happy Heart", with various Topaz manipulations and multiple Photoshop adjustments.
