I selected my Week 2 photo for Project 52. It's this door...the door to something delightful, but only in my imagination. Until I figure out exactly where it should lead, I spent some time having fun with it in Elements and even added one of my own textures! I'm gonna be learning a lot more about textures this year because I just signed up for a year-long adventure with Kim Klassen called "Beyond Layers." I'd love to thank my dear friend, Sally Russick, but I can't just yet because I have to see just how much time I'm going to lose staring at my computer playing instead of getting things done!! haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa Just kidding...the only way to learn how to fun-up pictures is to practice, so having a program to follow is a great way to work.
If you're interested...here's the before shot that I took with my iPhone. I used five different layers with various masks to make it look like this. My brother challenged me to never "just apply a filter" and be done...anyone can do that. It's the little tweaks that are going to make it all mine. So, that's what I tried to do here.
So, that's two for two in Project 52! Whooo hoooo.
