I love messing around with my photos and using textures as an overlay to add interest to the image.
This combination especially pleased me as it used two photos taken the same day. Here is the combination of the two:
It started with this shot of the girls on the beach.
Then I took this photo of a mural I spotted.
I altered it into this background texture by distorting the photo.
And then I placed the texture over the original photo to get the combination you see at the top of this blog.
Long Live the Manipulative Queen
