Kind of

The above is the pic I started from, cropped the center, put a lace layer over top with a gradient and something (hehe). I am not real sure of what I did, maybe a render? Then I desaturated and voila. I enjoy doing this, it gets me to play around with photoshop and see what I can do.

Picture of a dead rose. Reduced the saturation all the way. Used old photo effect and then old paper effect

My Threshold Try

I found an awesome tutorial that helped me to figure this out. What do you think?

Experimenting with threshold

Added a threshold adjustment layer above the original, merged down, deleted the white area, added a gradient layer underneath, merged down again. Then I used the cut out filter and added a slight texture.

Lets see what you can do with threshold.

sun challenge

I started with a circle, used the lasso tool to make the shapes of the rays and filled with color. duplicated the layer, lowered the opacity and rotated it slightly. Added a gradient layer. I used the paint daubs filter (I think) I play so much I sometimes forget. Underneath the sun I added a blue layer and then a cloud filter with the blending mode changed to soft light.

Sun Challenge

This is my sun. First I made a new layer. Then used the gradient to make the yellow/orange/red. Made another layer. Used the lasso tool to make the shape. Inversed the layer and cleared it to leave the shape. I played around with the hue/saturation and added an outer glow. Another layer and I used the cloud filter, and there you have it. That was fun!

My Edits

First I want to say thank you to Ann for inviting me into this fun place. I am really excited about it! With that said, here are my 2 edits:

Follow me challenge entry

Here's mine

Lets get this show on the road.

I suppose it's not going to be a very big show just yet, but here's to fun times and lasting friendship through the love of editing.
Lets start this off with a little challenge, shall we.
Since this is a new blog and I'm hoping we'll be adding authors as well as followers the theme of this challenge is "Follow me"

Incorporate the following lyrics from John Denver's song Follow me, into an edit.
Follow me where I go, what I do and who I know Make it part of you to be a part of me Follow me up and down, all the way and all around Take my hand and say you'll follow me

Submissions can be a design, word art, or a photo, as long as the above lyrics are a part of your creation.

Authors (at this point just myself and Miawa) may post submissions here. Everyone else is welcome to play along also. Just leave a link to your submission in the comments section of this post.
