Pink

The subject today is Pink.  I do love pink in all its various shades from soft blush to hot pink!  I love pink dress shirts on men too.  It's a very flattering color for almost anyone.  I'm using hot pink today as you can see......  Run your mouse over the image to see the original.



I love the effect of Kim's two textures "So True" and "Absolutely".  I used two layers of each in different blends.  I ended up with about 15 layers.  I can't remember all the steps I took because unfortuately PSE does not record filters in a layer.   Lots of experimentation to see what different adjustments, filters and blends would give me.
For fun, I'm adding a collage of several other edits I did.  As you know it can go on and on!!

You can stop by Kim's blog and see many other Pink creations!  There are usually 140+ contributors.....all equally talented.

What a gorgeous pink! I tend to stay with the muted colors when I plant tulips. I may need to plant some of these next fall! :)

You created a real beauty from an ordinary photograph. Transforming the mundane into art! Fun to see the different versions in your photo collage.
