Christmas Baubles Ornament Snow Globe challenge

Ok something a bit different, no photo to artify but a sort of challenge
As it is nearly xmas ( you have noticed Dougs decorations at the top of the page )
I thought we could make our own baubles and post here.

There is a action here for a sphere which could be made into a bauble ( works in ps6 upwards (Ok SteveC))

http://www.chainstyle.com/free_actions.html

A tutorial here http://www.tutorialwiz.com/xmas_ornament/

lkroll has done a bauble already here
http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...ke-joey-4.html
(sorry if i have beat you to the punch here Lyle)

Just found a tutorial for a dreamy winter scene

http://myphotosoft.com/creative/winter-dream-3.html

so make a bauble with a xmas theme or what xmas means to you and post OR any other decoration you can come up with, also post any more actions/tutorials that you find (as well as too the library )

Re: Christmas Baubles challenge

Okay, I'll go first.

I did this several years ago, actually, for the company Christmas card. I tried adapting existing ornament photos to my evil purposes but wound up creating the thing from scratch (except for the gold hanger thingie (must be a word for it)). I have, of course, completely forgotten how I did it. The rest of the image is a photo I made.

I realize the context won't make sense to anybody; it's pretty much an 'in' joke.

Everything but the photo machine and the bg laces was drawn in photoshop.

Re: Christmas Baubles challenge

Dc that is cool and i think thingy is a brilliant name I have done a couple with the spherize action but trying to make a thingy now ! ! ! !

Godmother that is very cool love the top part of the bauble, I do mean the snowy/frosty bit (as well as your thingy)

When i get round to posting mine they are not going to be close to both of yours but i will have enjoyed myself and have something to learn for next year ( there may be questions)

Re: Christmas Baubles challenge

Yes you did, but still needs to be done. It's Christmas by golly. Looks like all's quite on the DPR's front, but I'll try to post another one here soon.

Edit:
Well I already did this one recently as a response to Jan's thread on Innographx. Here's my response.

Re: Christmas Baubles challenge

Well i think you are going to be disappointed here, as all i have done is a sphere using one of Paricia Kays photo's.

The darn thingy (hanger) had me beat i couldn't make one that looked as if someone over 5 had done it, ! ! ! ! but i will try again ( and i did try cheating but that didn't work either )

Lyle I like that one a lot

Susie that is great and you made a thingy (hanger) (can i bribe you to post it ?) Dont stop there try some more

Re: Christmas Baubles challenge

Palms, I think yours is beautiful!! I don't understand what you mean, "..bribe you to post it"? I thought that my 'thingy' really sucked, but, had to get going. I just used the directions from that 2nd link that you mentioned at the tutorialwiz to do the whole thing. Let me know what you're talking about to post, ok? Great fun everyone!

Thanks Patricia, you are very kind. And your snow trees are fabulous!

Edit: Palms, I think maybe you meant to post the "thingy". I saved its 2 layers as a gif, but, I had used drop shadow on it and it might not work for you. Let me know if you want me to save it without the drop shadow. Cheers!
