Awesome! Fix it Friday at I Heart Faces is BACK!

I adore fix it friday! If you are not familiar with it- get over to I Heart Faces and check it out and try your own hand at “fixing” the photo at hand. I did not take this photo- I just edited it. I tried to break out of my au naturale (aka…boring at times) editing shell and get a little artsy! What do you  think? My fix was done in CS5. I fixed the color and contrast using color balance and contrast layers, cropped the sweet girl in a bit closer. Brightened a very small smidge, ran Florabella “Mademoiselle” and adjusted the overall opacity to 33% and adjusted each individual layer to suit my taste. Then I overlayed Florabellas Jubilee texture and adjusted the opacity to about 60% and erased it from her skin using a layer mask. And VOILA! My “artsy” not so “boring” fix! 2011 is going to be the year I break out of my editing shell and get my artsy on!


Here is the “BEFORE” (it was already a nice photo…dontcha’ think?)



And this is the “AFTER” my “fix”
