Well, Uncle Danny, this has been a feeding frenzy.
I guess all us lost souls crave direction and discipline.

Credit goes to the very inventive member who suggested this twist via the "lurker" thread.

It just goes to show I should ask for ideas more often.

To create this little 4-up interpretation I got to messing with some Photoshop filters (identified in the pic) that I don't usually tinker with. Each corner was futher modified by cloning or using the Healing Brush to touchup blobs or blank areas.

Thanks for the inspiration, gang!

Painter 8.1

Filled an empty layer over original image with Black as if for cloning. Clicked on transparency button and used "white" chalk. (Unticked "Use Clone Color")..

Great results Danny, Love the stamp best though!

This doesn't do her justice at all!!!

...but look at the inventive technique you tried and shared with the rest of us.

That in and of itself is worth its weight in gold.

This one...basically three layers, each from duplicates of the original BG:
* Top: Photoshop Dry Brush (twice). Added a hide all layer mask and airbrushed with white to restore some facial detail (eyes & mouth, mostly)
* Middle: Impresssionist > Charcoal > Default. Added a hide all layer mask and airbrushed with white to tone down some of the edginess of the layer below.
* Bottom: Impressionist > #djroils24 custom setting.

Added a Channel Mixer adjustment layer to the top of the layer stack, checked the Monochrome option and fiddled with the sliders.

Played around with Danny's suggestion about using Smart Blur, Edges only. Masked out Pamela and changed background to frosted ice sheet.

Cheers
Dave

Thank you Elle! The background on the first pic really doesn't do justice to the ice. We had a beautifu, sunny day on the island today. I broke the ice on top of our Koi pond and it had this wonderful bubbly texture. Holding it up to the sun was spectacular. Couldn't capture it in the image though. Keep on truckin' !
I really like a lot of the stuff you're crankin out!

Dave
