I liked this challenge, April! I used items I owned but hadn't used, and when I was done applied Syndee's Photo FX Action radial blur to the entire LO, then used the built in layer and a large, soft brush to brush away the area I wanted to show through, varying the opacity of the brush here and there. I skipped the last two parts of the action, which adjusted contrast and clarified and sharpened, since I wanted a softer look, but they did work very well. I changed the blending mode of the action layer to Exclusion in PS5, which resulted in the bluish cast. I really liked this action! Thanks, Syndee and April, and Diane and Durin for the beautiful papers and elements!
Photo is of my niece and her new husband...I will do more with front views. She was a beautiful bride! (Her waist is tinier than Kate Middleton when she was photoshopped on a magazine cover- LOL. She eats like crazy and yes, I am jealous, LOL.)
