Version #5: Sketch method from #4 set to difference mode at some point, then more glass/faded to lighten and set to low opacity overlay (?)...forget exact steps, but difference mode was a layer for sure.

Version #6: Oil painting from craquelure with all sliders set to left, then faded to darken. Brighten, then add oil paint stroke pattern layer and Trimoon’s canvas, embossed, in overlay mode. Tweak saturation and contrast.

Jeanie -- this is such a wonderful image!! Thank you for sharing such a beautiful family with us.

Everyone is doing such good work!

Phyllis -- I'm not sure which ones I like best of yours, and I'm glad you uploaded more than one.

Jill, Jean, Bill, Fishboy, Tye, Lacto, Pam -- you've done your usual good work on this beautiful photo. I'm having trouble thinking of something that hasn't already been done beautifully.

Question for TwinANJ

I like the effect that the pattern stamp gives you. What steps or methods do you use, I played around with it but didn't get anything like what you got.

Thanks,
E.B.

Here's my go at it. I used Phyllis' abstract tutorial, then used a soft smudge on the top layer. I changed the top layer to overlay after USM at about 300. I still need to work on this smudging stuff, but I'm getting close (I think).

It looked like everyone had fun with this image, so I decided to give it a try as well.

EB West..... I never write step by step when working. I have purchased a notebook and am going to keep it at my side!
Anyway the basic way I played with the picture was made two copies of the base picture. The middle layer I desaturated, then went to the color layer on top of the desaturated layer. Took the pattern stamp and changed the brush setting (dry media) and pattern styles and played until I liked what I got. . I used different brush styles and pattern stamp on the background and the birds. Made a new layer and merged visable layers. Then I used filters to sharpen and emboss being one of my favorites I may have used that also. I hope this will help, I am not really good at explaining what I do since half the time I do not know myself!
Thank you for asking and I hope it will help. Let me know how you make out!

Jean
