CoffeeShop "Cracked Glass Plate" Fine Art Texture/Overlay

Duke and I are still sick (coughs can last forever and really wear you down) but everyone else is getting better. What a month we have been having here at the CoffeeShop house. I am ready for cooler weather and a healed family. I know my husband Paul is ready for me to be back to normal. I get really grouchy when I am sick...

Today we are watching the eclipse. I think we will see around 2/3 of it in this part of Texas, and so far it has been amazing. We go out there every 10 minutes or so with our eclipse glasses provided by Paul. I wish we could have gone up north to see the full eclipse, but traveling would have been a nightmare with our bad coughs, so everything worked out ok. I hope everyone  in the path of the eclipse is enjoying this once-in-a-lifetime event. :-)

I have a new fine art texture/overlay to share with you today. I used this free texture and combined a few other textures and created this moody cracked glass plate effect. I use this one in soft light and overlay, but you can try some of the other blending modes too. I love using it with a B&W action. In fact, I wrote a new one that works perfectly with this overlay and I will post it later this week.

I want to thank the talented photographer at Unsplash for sharing their photos (woman with dog, flower, fox, roses, acorn, cat).

  1. Cool tex. Thanks so much.

    I'm sorry to hear that you and Duke are still under the weather but I am glad to see that you got to enjoy the eclipse. Up here in northern Ontario I think it was visible between 55 and 65% but we didn't have glasses to see it. Would have been awesome if we had.

    Take care my dear!
