I ♥ Faces Fix It Friday

Yup, it's that time again. I love Fix it Friday at IHEARTFACES It gives me the chance to play using my Photoshop Skilz....and the photo this week is just darling!!! I adore cruising the participants versions. You have professionals, amateurs and those who just like to play, like me!! I did 2 versions...

This one is the original...
This one I applied an oil painting technique using Corel Paint Shop Pro and Photoshop CS5. Just playing around with different textures and strokes. Then tweeking color and adding a slight vignette in Photoshop.
This one was done all in Photoshop using Florabella Actions and textures fron the Luxe II set and the new Texture III set. I am so addicted to Florabella Textures and Actions. They are my favorite next to Kubota and MCP..Oh yea, and Totally Rad..I am an action junkie. I mix and match all the time!! I like this edit the best. I must remember the formula...
