Self portrait....

Blogtoberfest day 13:

Today the hostess with the mostest has offered the theme of self portrait for us all to embrace.

I agree it would be nice to see the faces of all the blogtoberfest participants.

Alas....my web cam is pretty sucky, so I may have gone a bit silly with photoshop trying to make my portrait a little more interesting.


For the photoshop gals out there wanting to play too... all I did was change my colors to teal and white first, then selected my silhouette with the polygon lasso tool....then under the filter tab in the category of sketch, I selected halftone paper as my filter this gave me the teal and white version of me. Lastly I cut and paste some flowers and layered them over top.

But for the naturalists out there...

Here is the real pic.

Hair not done, no makeup and poor quality web cam.
See...that's why I needed photoshops help.
