Thank you so much, Joannie and Stephanie--I really appreciate your great comments.

This wasn't that hard, just a lot of playing around with layers until I liked the result. What I think is really hard are the "painted" images that people do in Photoshop, Corel, Painter, etc. I couldn't begin to do those! #6136852
