Default July 2011 - Creative Techniques Challenge - SKETCH FILTER

Hello ladies!!!

Sorry I am late!!!

This month I thought we would look at some more Filters in Photoshop Elements, particularly the Sketch filters.

Like most Filters, the end result will depend a lot on the type of the photo you have. To use the Sketch filters effectively your photos need to have a bit contrast in them. As these particular filters are designed
to give you a 'sketch like' result, think large portrait type photos of people, furry friends or objects.

As in past challenges, if you are not using PSE then take a look at the program you are using, perhaps you may have similar features that are named differently.

Here is the tutorial for this page I did of my grandson.








CHALLENGE RULES:

- You need to create an LO using one (or more) of the filters found under SKETCH
- Scrap about anything you like
- You need to use at least 80% of Oscraps designer products - check out their FREEBIES!! (note: Freebies from Oscrap members do not qualify)
- Make sure to load your LO into the Creative Techniques Challenge Gallery and then link your LO to this thread. (SEE IMPORTANT NOTE BELOW!)
- Challenge closes at midnight Sunday 31 July 2011 (CST)

VERY IMPORTANT - PLEASE NOTE:

1. Once you post your LO in the CREATIVE TECHNIQUES CHALLENGE GALLERY and you need to link back to THIS CHALLENGE THREAD and pop in the LO too so we can all drool over it. (Don't know how to link a LO to a thread, then check this out: http://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=18158 )

2 To receive your points credit for the challenge, YOU MUST LINK YOUR PAGE IN THE CHALLENGE TRACKING THREAD AS WELL !!! (But NO pictures this time! )

3. AND ABOVE ALL ELSE........... HAVE FUN!!!

Here's mine:



I just took my sketchy photo, sized it to fit on the background paper - made it an overlay (think I took the Soft Light option) and added the wordart.

Oh, and you might want to edit the link to THE CHALLENGE TRACKING THREAD - I clicked on it, and got confused since everyone seemed to be done with the challenges ... turned out it was October's challenge tracking thread

Thank you for your tutorial! Using the sketch technique was easy now.
And then .............. I started blending ... almost all day long. Oeps!
