FIX-IT-FRIDAY - #73 ~ Chalk it Up!


This weeks original is so CUTE! 
It's also incredibly nice to work with :D 
A little sharpening & warming and then it's all about creativity!! 

LRE3 edits first...

Basic Fix #1

Part One (read from bottom to top for all LRE histories)
+ Part Two

The brush strokes were adjustment brushes; (A) iris enhancement and (b)sharpen (just around the eyes and her necklace)





Click here for Soulshine preset 



Click here for Wedding Look preset





Click here for Vivian Chung's Preset

(I did this to fit in with this weeks chalky theme, but I don't really like the effect much!)


PSE7 edits now...
(read histories top-bottom now)


imported #1 and worked from there;
Did a simple sharpen on a duplicate background layer x2 (made original invisible) and erased from her skin and hair (you can see this on the history screen-shot in the next edit as layer labelled 'orig dup sharp' ), lowered it's opacity and merged down.
Applied Paper Mama's Brighten Me action and played with the layers to taste!



Used Amanda Padgett's Florida Action
The brush tooling was working on the vignette layer to darken the edges a little.
After this I used AmaPad 'add a border' and filled it pink :D
Actions from HERE



Applied a simple black and white gradient map



Applied a second gradient map in bronzy colours


Used fix 8 (my favourite) and set it behind Coffee-Shop Distressed Flower Card template ~ Just for fun! 
The text on this is editable, but I chose to leave it.


I had REAL fun today!! :D

Wow! I love that you included your creative process for the images. I would have never thought to do it like that!

That said, they are all beautiful, but I adore #3. I'm a sucker for the soft, vintage look. :)
