I Heart Faces - Fix It Friday - March 26

When I saw the photo - I knew this one would be fun!

Love the colors and the beautiful eyes!

Below is the original photo.


I immediately did just an auto levels correction in PS CS2 which
corrected a lot of the brightness and exposure levels.

away the chapped little cheeks and brighten up the eyes a bit, and
make the colors pop.
Used a healing brush to correct the little bruised area between her eyes.


Then I thought it would be fun to add a texture to the photo.
Again one of the free texture packs that is out there. I erased nearly all
texture from the subject.


I've been wanting to learn more about using clipping masks and had
these free frames from Coffeeshop - this one turned out really cute.


And here's my final -

Lots more to see over at I Heart Faces - Fix it Friday!
