Interesting filter this one, but one I had to use in a very subtle way to be able to live with the result, LOL! This has 2 layers of photo...one with the bas relief filter applied and an overlay blending mode. Beneath that is a textured plain paper from Weeds and Wildflowers - Cherish kit - and above is the original photo with a multiply blending mode. This gave an old photo kinda feel to the page and yet allowed a little of the colours of the original photo to show through!
LOVED playing with this stuff! I inverted the pattern to get white snowflakes instead of black, and rather than use someone else's paper, I stuck to just Hummie's texture and added a solid white and a solid orangey layer and changed the blending modes to make it all work together!
Great fun! Check out Hummie's blog to see more of these gorgeous patterns!

Here are my homework pieces! LOVE the effects the textures give. the old barn photo was provided by Kim for experimentation and using one of her fabulous 'recipes' for textures and blending modes. I then used this recipe just slightly changed for the bottom photo!
Had such fun playing with these! The top one has 6 layers of the photo, each with different blending modes and 3 with different colours and the stamp filter applied! The 2nd has 4 layers of the photo, with different angles and ranges of motion blur applied, as well as 2 textures by Kim Klassen (warm grunge and live, laugh, love) and a solid black layer in overlay mode for good measure, LOL!
Had to download and install a plug in for this - who'd have thought I could do that?!!!!!
I wanted to make this for Julia. Although Donnie is still with us, I wanted to create a happy page with a positive thought attached, that she might be able to come back to as and when.
Julia, I hope you like this, and it doesn't make you too sad right now! And I hope you'll be able to come back to this afterwards and enjoy it!
Credits: I got a bit caught up in this page and forgot to note down everything I used - sorry! there are 3 masks, stash from a freebie kit from A-Liya which was in today's newsletter. Warm grunge and Live Love Laugh Textures by Kim Klassen, and several brushes, one of which was dance of the flowers.
I was hoping this photo would work well with this filter, and I wasn't disappointed!
Loved playing with this! I used several layers of the photo, added a gradient map layer to change it to a sharp b&w, then changed some blending modes, including one layer using 'dissolve' to give an added snowy effect in the sky! I selected the b/g to add a medium dotted mezzotint, and then long strokes on the tree and on the 2 border layers - this really helped them merge into the page and continue the texture to the edges!
A page for Antoinette! I used papers and an element from Girlboheme Studios' Autumn Daydream kit and changed the blending modes to add a tint and a bit of texture. Then I layered up two textures. One from Hummie @ Hummie's World - the Day 1, 30 Days of Gratitude Texture - and warm grunge from Kim Klassen. Other elements from Girlboheme's Sail Sail Away kit.
This is SUCH a beautiful kit, it almost seemed a shame to use it for a Hallowe'en page, but it shows just how useful it will be in your stash!!! The work of Girlboheme Studios, Caged Bird Designs and Dora's Lemon Love, it has 1 full alpha set, 36 papers and 52 elements!
LOVE this new kit - esp. the beautiful papers which are right up my street! Cute and yet not, this kit is so versatile and great for anyone's style of scrapping! It's available now at Digital Design Den.
Added a texture and loved the effect but then couldn't see the glass effect! So I duplicated the photo and added it in overlay mode above the texture. Then I went back and added glass blocks to just the background of the bottom photo...LOVE the added depth that gives to it, esp. around her chin!! I used frosted on all of the 2 photos initially btw.
Not the easist technique to make a natural-looking photo with, but GREAT for a more special-effects-type pic!! had a good play and settled on this degree of blur. I used the first giveaway by Hummie during her 30 Days of Gratitude - a lovely gentle texture - YUM! I used it on the photo layered up 2x with diff blending modes, and then again on the b/g paper to produce this more dramatic effect, esp. around the edges! Thanks for that Hummie!
It's so good to have started to catch up with my Hummie's World classes!! Slow but sure wins the day!! That's what I keep telling myself anyway!!!
