today I have another suggestion for you concerning the creation of textures.
Lately I enjoy combining different textures I shot and trying to make something unique and new.
This is what I created:
|bed of roses|
I'd like to show you the main principle of my technique that I applied here:
1. take a texture with a fine structure
2. take a texture with a rather grungy structure
In this case I chose a picture of some pastel colored roses. I cut them out and placed them on one of the layers in Photoshop. I copied them over and over and arranged and positioned them until I liked the result. Here is what I started with:
Combining the pictures in Photoshop
As always its the easiest to show you the PS-layers:
I simply stopped after these four layers, because more wasn't neede to show the main principle.
Normally I go on adding layers of different textures, use PS-filters on some of the layers, add a layer mask and erase parts of layers and so on.
This is a very simple, but effective approach and I hope it gives you a good idea how of the texture creation workflow.
