Coffee Shop's New Web Colour Block It Action

I just tried the new Coffe Shop Web Colour Block It Action. It adds a custom colour block on any side of your image as well as giving you the option of plain or rounded corners. You can download this PS/PSE action for free from the Coffee Shop . Thanks Rita!

You can use anything for a backdrop

Don't have a backdrop handy? Not a problem. The photo of this gorgeous orchid was taken by sitting the pot on top of a board with another board hinged behind it.

My Dad made this backdrop for taking photos of model planes. I thought it would work well for flowers too. Thanks Dad!

A Rose for Valentine's Day

To make those beautiful Valentine's Day flowers last forever, why not take a photo.

Here's how I created this picture using Photoshop Elements 8 with textures from ShadowHouse Creations:
  • Open your photo - this will become the Background Layer.
  • Layer 1: Open your first texture. I used 'Lime' from the Heavenly Vintage Texture Set. Then set your blend mode to 'Soft Light'.
  • Layer 2: Open your second texture. This time I used 'ACT4' from the Aged Canvas Texture Set. Set your blend mode to 'Overlay'.
  • Merge Layers.

Thanks to Jerry from ShadowHouse Creations for sharing these amazing textures.

Happy Valentine's Day!
