Special Florabella textures Giveaway-transform your photos into works of art
A little while ago you may remember my post about Shana Rae and her beautiful pastel toned floral photographs.(the yellow roses above are one of hers) Shana has developed such a unique styling to her work and it really stands out amongst the many talented photographers on flickr,quite an achievement i think you'll agree. Now you can share in a little of her magic with Florabella textures which Shana herself has created and uses on her own work.
With the use of photoshop elements where you can digitally manipulate your images,the Textures allow the layering in of different effects. There is a vast array of creative choices you can make by applying one or many of the textures that come with the download.I like the idea of giving a washed out or vintage feel to my floral snapshots.
I think it will take me a little while to get up and running with the applications given that i have never used photoshop before (i am at present just working out how to put the Elements program i have had at the back of the cupboard actually onto my PC!). But its always nice to learn things via other people and before Shana emailed me about the textures i really had no idea that these sort of programs existed and could be bought by the talented photographers who developed them. I presumed they had just the limited options of washes and enhancing affects avaliable on the programs you buy, such as Photoshop.

I made these little mosaics up (using the mosaic application at Bighugelabs) to showcase what can be done with the Florabella set, see for yourself the world of possibilities it opens up to play around with your own images. All the pictures here are by different photographers,some professional, some not. They all have one or more of the Florabella Textures applied to them,and are part of the Florabella pool on flickr.
