February Wandering {Texture & Brush Tutorial}

Not much out there... This February season is mainly boring, grey, dull... But we are happy to have Photoshop! Let's turn our ordinary simple snapshots into a nice piece of art.

I call this one "February Wandering"

Let's see how it was done... Here is the original image.

First I cloned out top of the tree in the right bottom corner that I found distracting. Need help with cloning? - Check out the tutorial here.
After this I run 'Soft Urban' Action from Florabella Collection.
A little vignetting to add drama...


La Provence Texture by Pixel Dust Photo Art



Brushing in some additional clouds by Milanda @ Brusheezy

Adding birds by Distressed Textures and a moon by Hawksmont @ Brusheezy.


Here we are. It's a beautiful world. Enjoy!

  1. Oi wau!:) Tulinpa kurkkaamaan, kun olit käynyt blogissani. Ihanan satumaisen tunnelman olet onnistunut luomaan. Olen itse niin tumpelo kaikessa tekniikkaan liittyvässä, mutta pikku hiljaa yritän opetella valokuvausta, kuvankäsittelyä yms..
