I ♥ Faces Fix-It #14 - “Ponytail Princess”

It's time for Fix-It Friday #14 at I ♥ Faces.

This cutie-pie photo was submitted by Katarina from Rambunctious Joy. Thank you so much for letting us borrow your photo this week Katarina!

By now, everyone knows how much I love I ♥ Faces and editing photos! After working 10+ hours every Friday, this is so much fun to come home to!

Here is the original:

and here are my plays using CS3, some actions, some textures, and such :)

This first one, I duped the layer, turned that one into a soft light layer, 25% opacity. Edited the color and softened her skin. Sharpened the eyes, and added a layer of texture to cover those bare walls.

Pretty much the same with this one. Not sure I like the pink texture, but thought I'd post it anyway :)

This one is my favorite. It reminds me of a photo you'd find of your grandmother in an old photo album. I just love this action by PW! It's called Heartland, and it's amazing. I also used her "Boost" to bring up the blacks a bit. Just sharpened and flattened. Love it.

I like the second one with the pink. So pretty!
