Thank you, Dawn and Dee!
I didn't use Painter (I only wish I could work in that program!). I used layers, filters and the smudge tool to create the soft look and blend the image. The original was actually a product of a bored mind...Sometimes that's a good thing to get the creative juices flowing (lol)! ;)
