Did a lot of playing around with a little of everything on this one. Still not sure what I did is anything postable. Sometimes one's inspiration falters. Don't say you weren't warned.

Thumbs down Terivon-CP AutumnGirl

Hmm..
Well, I through just about everything but the kitchen sink into her HA! Had a fabulous time though. I had this little leaf brush I've never had a chance to use, and decided to take her camoflauge up a notch in a few zillion layers of colour, however looking back, I think I went a bit nuts.

My husband on the other hand, took a peek and said if she was the poster child for Canada, he's moving.

Thanks so much for this one!
Teri

Very cool second version, Twin.
Amy, what a beautiful combination of effects!
I think your inspiration is alive and well, Steve, awesome textury look.
And Ms. Pam, a flawless smudge painting, of course.
Teri, I get some of those husband remarks over my shoulder. I just give him the look and keep going I happen to love that shadowy, leafy look you got.

I started out to make a mosaic background and then said what the heck and did the whole thing. It has so much texture I had to do a screen capture to get a pic small enough to upload here, but the link leads to a higher res version. This is my first attempt at a mosaic portrait.

This is definetly one of the more interesting pics to play with. Worked in LAB, reversed curved the A and B Channel, then Z curved both to bring back a quasi skin tone. Ran Impressionist>Watercolors Splatter Colorful>Brush: Watr9b>Smudge:5/Pressure:83

Cheers

What a great photo and awsome art interpretations being done from it. Thanks Catherine.

I used Studio Artist and Painter for this one.

Oh, that's a LOVELY mosaic! I'm so not showing my husband that one, or he'll be redoing the entryway using it as a pattern! Great Job!
