Fantastic artwork you have done here did you use Corelle painter? #589800

Dee Ann Young 1/17/2007 11:31:11 PM

Sherry, once again a fantastic portrait and composition! #3832748

Sherry S. Boles 1/17/2007 11:39:08 PM

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)! ;) #3832762

Janine Russell 1/18/2007 12:08:45 AM
