Behind the Lace

For Mandarin OrangeMonday I am using two photographs.  One a copyright free vintage photograph I found on the web.  The other a picture of lace I found at a website I discovered this week at, a wonderful place where you can down load for free wonderful backgrounds for digital manipulation.


First I gave a bit of colour to the lady and distorted her lightly in the lens filter in Photoshop.

Then I distorted her a bit more and merged her with the lace photo. And then fiddled a lot!

More distortion and fiddling.

Then I went back to the original photos and merged them, a shy lady unlike the confident Miss above.

Decided to crop image and get a romantic look.

Finally decided to bring her alive with lots of orange!
