Some of you have seen me use

this image of a mannequin in previous posts.   I just love her, so

I'm using her again.

Layer 1 is one of my painting texture/backgrounds
Layer 2 - I duplicated the background in overlay blend
Layer 3 - I layered the mannequin image
Layer 4 - another duplicate of my background - this time on Multiply
Layer 5 - A texture called "it's all about color - medium copper"
Sorry, for the life of me I don't remember where I got it.    If anyone knows, please leave a comment or email me.
Layer 6- Pixel Dust Photo Art "dream" overlay in linear light blend
Layer 7 - I rotated PDPA "dream" overlay 180º and used hard light blend
Layer 8 - I added one of my own textures on color burn
All blends were 100%
Layer 9 - added text

WOW - LOVE this piece Marilyn. All your editing produced a piece that intrigues. As you look at it, you slowly see more and more elements. I love to come here and see your work - thanks so much for sharing it at Photo Art Friday!

muted palette said...

Very striking.
And that golden copper is evocative. I never came across it so can't help you with the name. It is easy to forget whose is whose [?] texture. I mark them now out of respect to the designers. They are so good to let us use so many.

That's such a strong graphic image. I really like what you've done with the colors. Beautiful and haunting...I really like it!

Ida said...

Oh wow, Now I am "jealous" for sure because I have no clue how to do layering like you just described. - Don't have PSE. I need lessons me thinks.

This is just amazing. It's would make a wonderful poster.
