Creative interpretations: Cabin, Janet's
Forgive me for already having done some mild retouching. I, uhmmmm, uhhh, blew out the sky pretty badly while trying to get the cabin exposed correctly. Therefore, I took the liberty of replacing the sky. If you don't like it, take it back out.
Another kinda P Stewart effort. Wanted to keep the juxtiposition of the quiet, safe, sturdy homestead and the barb wire fence surrounding it. Great image. Thanks
The setting for this old cabin is so very picturesque and isolated that I wanted someting dreamy, but not watery, romantic but realistic.
I enjoyed working on this. I used a variation of Trimoon's sketching technique, some overlay and blending, smudge and whatever worked.
I uploaded the wrong pic and screen shot the first time. Go figure. As an addendum to the screen shot, I added one extra merged layer at the top and used the impressionist filter Damp/Translucent Wash set to image with settings of 100, 80, & 60.

Fun picture to play with, Janet. Reminds me of "camping at the cabin" when I was much, much younger.
First I enlarged the image to 12" tall and 80 ppi. After duplicating the Background I tried experimenting with the Filter > Distort > Polar Coordinates method (described here ) using Dry Brush as the filter.
Then I duplicated the background, applied Dry Brush and set the blend mode to Difference. This gave a black with outline effect. This dry brush/difference layer was duplicated to restore the rest of the detail and colors.
Hmmm... pretty interesting so far. Better than just plain Dry Brush.
New layer followed by Alt + Layer > Merge Visible to combine all layers onto the new layer. I then applied a megadose of Unsharp Mask for some contrast and color.
Optional: For those who have the Impressionist plugin, I applied custom style Oil#24 (see this thread ) and blended it in with a layer mask.
Finally a Levels adjustment layer was added so I could lighten up a few places that looked too dark.

Your little barn's just so cute, Janet.
Wonderful creations, everyone!
Here's mine, using a define-pattern image and brush. I first manipulated the image for the pattern using g'blur and median filters for the effect i was after. Finall, a sandstone texturizer.
Thanks Janet, I'd forgotten to come back and grab this one......
