Create a painterly look with your photos using textures and borders...

A texture layer can create a soft, painterly look, changing the overall mood of a photograph. You can overlay a texture layer with your photograph, and choose a blend mode to create soft brushstrokes of color throughout the composition. This is especially helpful with empty sky images, allowing the texture to show through. I used a beautiful texture from my favorite collection Spring Painterly from Flypaper Textures.

To accentuate the hand painted look, I used an artistic border from OnOne PhotoFrame. A border or edge treatment is often adds the perfect finishing touch. I like this simple creative edge from the Guru collection in OnOne PhotoFrame. By the way, get ready for some very cool new creations from OnOne! The next big thing is coming up soon!
