Self Portrait

Found a super book on creating art with Photoshop Elements.  It is called “Digital Expressions” by Susan Tuttle.  I bought it on Amazon and did this piece by partially following a tutorial in it.  I used branch brushes and some grunge brushes in making this.  I also used Topaz ReMask to mask out my face from a photo I took myself. (Super hard to do without using a tripod and timer.  Both of which I have but was too lazy to set up!)  I used both a soft white brush and a dodging brush to fade the face.  Anyway, the book has lots of neat ideas and I hope to use them for future projects.  It’s all about inspiration!

Rose Hips Sketch

Processed using Filter/Sketch/Photocopy in Photoshop Elements 6.  Changed blending mode to color burn.  Used a wood texture set on Overlay for the frame.  I did a lot of burning on this one to bring back the outlines of the rose hips.  Hope you are all having a good week!
