TAKE A WORD


BLUE is our word for inspiration this week at Take A Word which I thought was a great opportunity to play around with layers.  Using two blue flower backgrounds by NumbBumm I layered one on top of the other with an Overlay blend.  The face detail layer, courtesy of Efie,  was given a Luminosity blend, then the layer was duplicated and a Lighter Colour blend was used to bring out the detail.  A Plastic Wrap filter completed the effect.

Thank you for looking.

Oh, I really love this one. It definitely expresses someone with the blues. The effects make it seem like the canvas itself is weeping.
