Mom was taking a few minutes this morning helping me catch up with a few blogs before getting started with the packing again. She was looking at some of the Caturday art and feeling bummed. It’s her favorite post — well, I guess it would have to be since it is her only post on my blog — and she was thinking she didn’t have time to work on one. Then she remembered that she had done one earlier in the week just in case things got really hairy as the move got down to the wire.
In this photo, mom “selected” Jan and put her on a separate layer. She then used a couple of filters on the original layer to decrease the detail then applied the emboss and chrome filters to the background layers.
Boy, did mom ever have fun with this week’s art project for the Caturday Art Blog Hop. She ran across a tutorial for creating an “out of bounds” effect and really liked the look. She worked on these earlier in the week in the evening, when she was exhausted from packing and needed a fun break.
This is the first one she did using the guided tutorial where everything is almost automatic with a few clicks. The main things she had to do was decide where the frame would go, the size and angle of the frame, and what part of the photo she wanted to “come out” of the frame, and then carefully select that part.
Mom wanted to try something really different this week but ran out of time with all that is going on. She worked on this project earlier in the week and decided to share it instead. It was done in Photoshop.
Under the distort filter, she used the turbulence tool under liquify to make the background wavy. As usual, she didn’t get it totally right – she can’t remember what she used to texturize the photo.
Here is the original.
