Card Scraps September Color Challenge
I enhanced Joey’s eyes a bit to add sparkle and brighten them. This is done with dodge and burn tools. Let me know if you want me to post a tutorial on it. The pic was taken with my Sony camera shortly after I got it. We are back to shooing with Nikon now, but I did love that little Sony! He was ten yrs old in this picture his smile could light up a room.
Another new challenge for me! Click the swatch to check out the challenge page. What fun this is!! This layout is loosely based on the sketch from Papers and Pixels. I print in 8 x 8 so the image is not as large as it seems on the page. The colors begged for fourth of july, but I wanted to do something else with it.
Papers can be recolored several ways in Photoshop (PS). The other day, I selected a single color and changed the hue and saturation settings to adjust the colors. This time, I added a new layer above the paper, filled it with the color from the challenge and then used blend modes to apply the color to the paper layer.
