Red Umbrella after
Originally uploaded by www.photoshopforartists.com

This red umbrella is vivid enough already but felt it was a bit too flat and could use some textures to make it more interesting so used four textures from the BEST TEXTURES 1 set. See below for the recipe:
Started with the OUTER GALAZY using linear light blend mode at 77% opacity.
Then moved on to SILVER PENDANT in overlay mode at 100%.
Followed by TEACHEST RED with vivid light at 35%
And lastly FUZZY LINEN with linear burn at only 16%
To the SILVER PENDANT layer I then added an adjustment layer and brushed out the centre which was just a little too dark. And that was it. Hope you enjoyed it.
