multilayered

day 3 of bootcamp and the prompt was ‘multilayered’.  Now as my chosen medium is photoshop elements I could have done pretty much anything because the real magic and reason for its popularity is the manipulation of multiple layers.  So I thought more broadly about layers – cake, rock, personality – that last one seemed a goer.

I used 27 photos of myself taken in 2nd half of last year. I ran the Pioneer Woman action called soft and faded over each one then cut a zagged oval and reduced opacity, mostly to some where in the 30-40% range.  And then I piled them all up, pretty haphazard.

It is interesting, different, something I have not done before and totally multilayered.

What a fun experiment using the prompt for today! I love PW's site but have not used her actions (am I the only one who finds using actions in PSE awkward?).

Wow...that's great. That really gives a whole new meaning to multi layered. I love the psychology of it as well.

Love it! I almost did some photoshop magic to my sketch today but thought it was beautiful in it's simplicity. Maybe I'll try it tomorrow!
