Hello again and welcome to our final week of February’s One Four Challenge!
Hope it’s been a great week for you and a creative one!!
Another quick word
Another quick post from me this week. Things are still busy here (with work) and it’s ongoing for now. Should be back to normal hopefully by next week. Just letting you know as I still haven’t been around everyone’s posts from this past week. My apologies 🙂
Really looking forward to a catchup to see everyone’s 3rd and 4th images.
I really didn’t know what to do this week, so I ‘hummed and hahed’ and finally decided on a light painterly approach.

Using last week’s base image in PS, I went straight into Topaz Simplify and chose a watercolour preset. Back to PS and added a light vignette, but then reduced the brightness all over, so that it wasn’t overpowered by the whiteness. A bit of dodging and then I adjusted the midtones, desaturated the pink slightly and cropped the image.
At the end of this process, I’m not too sure if I like it – (I’m not rapturous about the colour – maybe I need to step back and re-view it – will do that tomorrow) but this is due to my time restrictions this week. I was looking for a suggestion of the image.
I haven’t included a poll this week, but I’d love you to tell me which image (if any) you prefer for February. Thanks!
Kind thoughts and comments are welcome and appreciated!
Edit – Monday 10ish am – I forgot to add a gallery – you can tell where my head is presently 😉 Here goes..
..your turn again… 😀
About the challenge and how it works:
This challenge is about processing 1 image in 4 different ways over 4 weeks. We will all process / post edit (our own chosen image) and share a different version each week. Process it however you like… and tell us a bit about it. You don’t have to show the original image unless you’d like to. (I’m going to show mine in week 4 along with the 4 variations from the month). Try new things, experiment. Be as creative or subtle as you wish to be. Each week starts again on Monday (Aussie time) and closes off the following Sunday (at the end of the day), so there is a whole week for you to create your post, link up here and tag your post. This is a ongoing challenge. We will do the 1st four Mondays of the month. If there are 5 Mondays in a month – we’ll still only post on 4. Please TAG with One Four Challenge – thanks so much. As well as a link (to my blog post) in your own post – would you mind leaving your post link on my blog post too please – in comments if you could – this way we are aware of everyone’s blog posts. Thank you!
Hope to catch up very soon. Thanks for your patience with my busy-ness. Next week is March!! Wow, this year is going faaaasssst 😉 Have a great week!!
