For the Wed. High Noon Challenge, Manipulating Photos, 130130
Another LO using things from the collection I created called “An Old Fashion Love”, celebrating my nephew’s engagement. Also used the swirls, KSC_BrushSet_GoWithTheFlow-5. Font is CK_Heritage.
Started out with a photo my nephew took of their hands after placing the ring on her finger. Extracted just the hands, cleaned it up with the Spot Healing brush, and used two copies at Soft Light blend and different opacities until I liked the way it blended into the background paper. I extracted just the diamond from the original photo to place on top at Normal blend, adjusting the opacity so that it blended well with the photos underneath but made the diamond stand out in all its importance.
I think the prose came from a LO here at SG's, but didn't put that information in when I saved it to my 'sayings' Word file. I added the last sentence. I tried to search the web and found a couple of places where the phrases were attributed to Judy Garland.
