Christmas Holly

It's been a long time since I've posted in this section.
I don't know if this is actually holly, but it looks festive.
Have fun with it and Happy Hollydays!

Here is the link for the gallery where you can right-click save a larger size and view my edit in larger size.
Gallery links for larger images

I made an action for my technique if anyone wants to try out the action let me know and I can host it for download or something.
I'm still trying to figure out why we can't just post [img] links instead of posting super low-res images.

Re: Christmas Holly

holly salad, anyone?

(if this appears twice, sorry. I thought I already posted it earlier but I don't see it, so maybe I fumbled it the first time.)


Lyle, I like your ornament a lot more than mine!

Re: Christmas Holly

Looks like some holiday fun. Nice paintings and baubles. Lyle, you continue to amaze, and Marggg, I've never seen an ornament like yours. I'm assuming you used an action of some sort but I've never seen it. And your salad....LOL

Fran, lovely rendering.
Nature knows opposites attract with those reds and greens.

Re: Christmas Holly

Fran, yours is beautiful, like a real watercolor painting.

I made the "ball" (actually its a bell) with a photo of silver bell. I overlaid the holly and experimented with so many filters and blending modes I'm honestly not sure what I used in the end. And I made the dumb mistake of not taking snapshot before I flattened the layers. I was aiming for a painted ceramic look but couldn't achieve that, so I went this direction instead.
