Thanks Cindy, Jessica, Jeana, John, Stefania, April, and Inge.

Cindy, I used a variety of photoshop filters on this. I made lots of layers. Then on each layer I would try an effect or brush stroke. I used layer masks to apply different effects from each layer that I liked to different parts of the photo.
