Mandarin Orange Monday/77

Good morning from an overcast Hastings morning.

Today is Monday so time for LorikArt‘s challenge. I loved her post this week which you can find here:

I also was totally impressed by lady sighs post for http://sonelscornerphotochallenge.wordpress.com.

So I thought I would have a go with these two photos.  I can’t show you what I did as my blog crashed when I uploaded the photos for some strange reason.  I can tell you that I used Photoshop for editing the photos into the orange colour.  I used a couple of the filters – poster edges and fresco.  Then it was over to GIMP for a tweak with the cartoon filter before I used the paper curl filter to do the final image.  It took me a bit to work out that I could actually load two images together to get the layers.  But here is the final result.  At least that wasn’t corrupt.

I hope lady sighs doesn’t mind, but I was totally wowed by her post.  For me it was more of learning about different editing programmes and to stretch my mind.

Thanks for visiting.

  1. No, ladysighs doesn’t mind at all. lol
    What a lovely effect you got. And I am so glad you tried something new. The page curl is not so hard to do…..just press the button. But choosing the picture and a background is what makes it interesting.

    🙂 I could just curl all day.
