Yeah, you're getting more intricate all the time with your creations! I don't care for the outer lacey border, but the rest of it is wonderful! (sad, though!)

Tammy, I wish I could tell you exactly how I achieved this. Have you ever made one of those camp stews on the last day of camp when all the ingredients that remain are tossed in and the results are a suprise. That's kinda how this worked. I worked on it for a day on and off. Lots of layers, worked with some different hues, textures. Worked with contrast and saturation throughout the process and some of the other tools in the software. This was the final outcome. I am certain there is a more direct and easier way than I used to accomplish this effect. I thought I needed to keep the little redbird from being wasted. On a cloudy day I believe he flew into a window but at first I supposed it must have been one of the cats. I hated to let the little guy to have no purpose. In Winter, they make a person look forward to Springtime. Guess this is his tribute. Wish I could have helped more with the technique, Tammy. Kim, I wasn't sure about the lace but it gave it that feeling of finality. I'll experiment a bit Tammy and post some more of the technique if I can pinpoint more of the steps used to accomplish it. Kim I'll try and post the original without the lace. Hope you both have a good Groundhog Day and don't end up with 6 more weeks of Winter. ~Sky

Well, I'm ready for spring, but I guess we need more snow, so...


I admire your dedication to learning this art; you are doing so well at layers and things!

Nice work, Sky. You do seem to have a lot of patience for your digital experiments and the outcome is beautiful. I've seen such tragedy before and it was a mild shock for me.

Thanks Thai, I suppose patience provides for learning. A more appropiate use of time would be paying a teacher and learning faster and probably easier.


Kim, I've posted the original for comparison and left off the lace .


Tammy, I apologize for the loss of the techniques used here. The main step was to break the photo into layers then much of it from there was indeed experimental on my part.


Regards to all, ~Sky
