More Photo Editing

Here are a few more nifty things I learned from the Jessica Sprague photo editing class...


I took the same photo as before (already "grungified") and did some hand tinting (like you see in old fashioned photos). You have to create a new layer, color over your image with a brush, and then set the layer to soft light. This allows the textures of the photo below the tinting (ie - the straw hat) to show through.


Here is the first "grungy" photo with a Jessica Sprague frame (freebie from the class). I made a quick 12x12 layout with it, and included a texture over my background paper. It is very subtle and not truly noticable until you see the paper without it. Then I added a random assortment of buttons, and this cute quote from the RPenn"express yourself" kit. I recolored it to brown and also to white, then layered the two to give an illusion of outlining. Then I replaced the "o" in "joy" with a button. The swirls on the left are just a copy of the journaling layers I created with the words erased. So fun and quick!
