There's no doubt about it. Fall is my absolutely favorite season. I love cool, crisp weather. Hot bowls of soup. Thick wool sweaters. Rainy days curled up with a good book. But, most of all, I love the jewel-toned autumn colors. The red and gold palette is the one I turn to time and again. It's the palette I used in this week's Three Muse Challenge to use windows in our art.
This piece came about as a result of a tutorial on fantasy photo effects in a recent issue of "Photoshop Creative." I used color-matching, the dodge and blend tools, and lots of blending to get the effect.Photo by Heather Sorenson, stock.xchng; background paper from the Picture Yourself Digital Scrapbooking disk; leaves overlay from Lie Fhung's Lumoz Whimsy; and frame from Sussie M's A Little Piece of Summer.
