Calico Creations #3
Foreground image elements; grackle photo and scanned calico fabric.
Using different blend layers I applied the calico to the bird and masked the original background.
Background elements; photo of my kitchen countertop, photo of cornstalks.
I blended the cornstalks with the counter top photo and shifted the hue to a complimentary color. I applied a texture to the background. On a duplicate layer I masked the shape of the bird and applied a pillow emboss to that layer.
