BEST VIEWED IN LARGER VERSION!!
2 group features…
TO all my friends here on RB, who want to know how………
This began with the warm colors and I at the last minute changed the color hue to cool colors. which is explained here.. click the SHOW FULL DESCRIPTION BUTTON below to see the steps taken….
this digital abstract painting was created from a photo I took of a Christmas tree in the park, that was not real good,, so using PSE 8 and FotoFlexer programs.. I intend to give my best I can do of a tutorial of how to create an abstract like this.. obviously it is about.. getting in there and just playing around with all the tools, and effects offered in these programs.. I find them very calming, and refreshingly creative feeling. when I am tired, sick or stressed.. today, just tired…so here goes.. if anyone has any questions please ask, again you will not create the exact.. but this gives you some tools to try.. hope you do♥12/08/2011
I decided not to post this in JOURNALS, because most do not look at journals, and many groups do not except journals, so here we are… peace and love to you all♥linmarie

use the straighten tool,, usually to the left of your PSE program page
click on it, draw the line on your image at whatever angle pleases you.
the rest of the blank space around it will fill in with black automatically, but you can change that color using your paint bucket and drop another color. I preferred the black, it is more dramatic for doing the collective collage effect.
