I like the message painted graffiti style that I found in San Francisco, California. It's colorful, creative, and I wanted to expand on the idea of painting by using a few creative techniques in Photoshop. I like Snap Art Stylize. It removes detail and adds marker type black lines in the composition. I added several layers of texture for a watercolor type look for more depth. The finishing touch was a layer of Rustic Grunge from Action FX that blends beautifully with the image, creating another subtle layer of interest with leaf and rose patterns. The element of adding textures can enrich and enhance an image, creating an entirely new look, plus it's just fun. Make great pictures!
