Default Challenge No 2 - Creative Techniques January 2013


HAPPY NEW YEAR! I hope it is a good year for everyone, and sending you all lots of wishes for a healthy and safe year ahead filled with joy and love.
Like this time last year, I went looking through all the techniques we covered over the past year and I realised that I haven't used some of these for ages! What about you??

So this month I want you to look through the challenges from last year and pick one (or more) to work with.

Feb 2012 - We looked at Gradient and Blending, I have started using the gradient tool a lot lately as it gives such a lovely soft result.
Check it out here: https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22119

Mar 2012 - Recolouring PNG's - another technique that is very handy.
Check it out here: https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22383

Apr 2012 - We blended three photos together and also did some blending (but instead of erasing I now tend to use masks!)
Check it out here: https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=22741

May 2012 - Beaded Water, remember this one? I haven't done it again but I would like to.
Check it out here: https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23027

Jun 2012 - I was off on my Big Adventure around Europe/England so didn't do this one, but my lovely friend Trudy did and she challenged you to incorporate a title into your photo.
Check it out here: https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23246

Jul 2012 - Gradients and Blending again, this time to give your photos a more artsy feel to them.
Check it out here: https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23485

Aug 2012 - Adding texture, I really love doing this technique, over and over again.
Check it out here: https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23680

Sep 2012 - Photo blending using the Pattern tool, another technique I haven't done in awhile!
Check it out here: https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=23950

Nov 2012 - Minimum Filter to give a sketch like appearance to your photo! Totally love this one!!
Check it out here: https://ozone.oscraps.com/forum/showthread.php?t=24482

So there you have it! Some great techniques to revisit or discover for the first time!

Here is my page. My daughter in law Ange took this delightful photo of her niece a few years ago.

Love the review of 2012 technique challenges as I didn't make Oscraps my home until sometime in 2012.
