Thanks Colette, Carol and Suzie! I appreciate it. Let's see if I can remember what I did, Carol...

I did normal processing of the shot and did a crop. I made three layers from the background. The first layer was Smart Blur, Edge only, invert. I wanted the lines more distinct so I bumped them up a bit with Poster Edges. I made the second at 75% opacity. I increased the hue and saturation there and used the underpainting filter. I played around with the settings for the filter till I got something I liked and used the sandstone texture. I saw what I wanted with the two layers that were done so I lost third layer. I merged the layers on normal setting and used the texturizer again for sandstone texture. I increased the size of the canvas by one inch around. I made a layer of the increase and used the Silver filter (Flaming Pear) to make the frame choosing two colors in the image. That's about it.

Thanks again! #216277
