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!!!
