Happy day after St. Patrick’s Day! Hope you all celebrated appropriately! We stayed home all day – been working on some images for my next Topaz Webinar – March 27th 5 p.m. EDT. Sign ups should be open shortly! http://blog.topazlabs.com/webinars/
This is one of the images I will demonstrate:
I’ll be showing you how to do composites and manipulate your textures in Topaz Studio, including how to apply two presets to different parts of an image! Come join us!
This week’s Sunday Sampler was inspired by my hubby, Dave. He was editing an image from Tucson in Topaz Studio. I said, “hmmm…..that would be a cool texture”! So I applied the preset he created to one of my similar images, cropped smaller selections and applied a slight Gausian blur. Enjoy!

Come join them for two fabulous sessions and learn how they utilize their iPhones with some very creative apps – including ones that let you create RAW files on your phone!

I’m always looking for cool tutorials and freebies to share with all of you! This week, from Hongkiat.com comes an article with “80 Best Photo Effects Photoshop Tutorials”
One of the best sources for Photoshop Brushes to create some awesome artwork is GrutBrushes.com. Nicolai spends a lot of time creating his beautiful brushes that help you create digital paintings – or like I do, use them to create awesome textures! Grut Brushes is also a sponsor of our Creative Photography Conference and will give each attendee a set of free brushes as well as a discount on the rest of the site. He also has some new textured papers that I’ve had a chance to try out – amazing! With most digital papers, the color is hovering over the paper. With these, you can actually see the texture of the paper through the color for true digital painting. Try them out! His prices are very reasonable and he also does have some Freebies at: https://www.grutbrushes.com/free-photoshop-brushes/
