Hi everyone … I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. And I hope you all have food. 🙁 I would bring it to you myself if I could. I have been playing this morning as all the chores are done. I am after “getting the process down” and not so much on content with this one. So … I followed Shirley’s suggestion and went to unsplash. Wow – enough there to keep you busy forever! And large ones, too! So I found a lovely one of an owl. Then I wanted to practice all the things Cassel has taught us … so I changed the image to not really a cartoon look but pretty close by using the add remove noise, edge preserve, edge effects find all and then adjust and then the blend. Tried a slew of them until I got the ones I liked. Made a couple textured overlays, used the stitch brush that I made watching her class … I don’t know what else because I didn’t write them down. But a whole bunch of stuff I gleaned off of her classes went into the tag just so I could use them. That’s the only way I will remember them … is TO DO THEM. I would suggest if anyone, like me, who doesn’t have a lot of big pictures, which I don’t – try out Shirley’s suggestion. You can get lost just looking there. 🙂 Have a good weekend everyone.
