I♥faces Photo challenge

I found this great blog, I♥faces... it is a photography blog of, you guessed it, faces. I have manipulated this photo for the Fix it Friday photo challenge.

Here is my attempt at 'fixing' this gorgeous photograph entitled "Silly Girl".

this is the original


and here is my attempt.
.I just duplicated the layer, then applied a gaussian blur. I then overlaid the image. I also used a glitter overlay as per the recent tutorial and burnt the edges a bit. I use Paint Shop Pro X, not photoshop, but am saving.... :)


Why dont you have a try too???

Great job! I really like the background. I am just learning how to use these graphic programs -- seems to take almost more patience than I have:)

Nice work! My husband is a graphic designer, so we have Creative Suite 3 (Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop). And, I don't know how to use any of them! I used to work on PageMaker when I was in the design field myself, so I know I can learn. Just need to try.... :-)

Love it Jen. I think you did a good joh. Have you used light room? My husband is a photographer...I know little about it but since he is a retired teacher I am learning by listening to him:>)...sometimes more willingly than others:>)

Welcome to Psyche Connections!! I look forward to seeing more of your blog.
