Re: Tulips and Crocus!

One more...

I took a whole new approach to the Pattern Stamp Tool. I call it "Painting with Texture"

I did not create a Pattern from the Original. Instead, I painted on blank layers above the original using the Pattern Stamp tool brushes and selecting various patterns and textures that come with PhotoShop. Things like "Blistered Paint", "Peach Pebbled" etc. Some of these textures have their own color so I just desaturated the layer after using the brush and set the layer to Overlay. This retained the actual texture of the pattern, but discarded the color so that the colors from the original appeared when a brush layer was set to Overlay Blend mode.

I did add some film grain to one of the texture layers and I think on one of the layers I ran the Texturizer filter using the same texture as I painted with. This was all experimental and you forget exactly what you did, but the principal is the same as Using the Pattern Stamp Tool with the photo saved as the source.

I've included my layers palette as a guide if you want to play.
