Enhance Your Own Art With Photoshop Elements
I love painting and drawing, and I also love Photoshop Elements. Letting these two worlds collide has become one of my favorite things to do. It's amazing how you can enhance or even completely alter the look of an original piece of art in PSE...truly amazing!
A few days ago I painted this floral "B" in my sketchbook...it's very basic and I simply traced an old, copyright-free embroidery pattern onto paper and filled it in with watercolors (I'm no painting expert). Painting still intimidates me, so it's comforting to trace a copyright-free design and simply practice with my paintbrushes. Next, I scanned my painting into PSE, saved the original, and started playing around with duplicate copies to see how I could change its appearance. Here are three different results I came up with. The possibilities are endless!
