This week I followed a tutorial to give me my week 4 end result… more about that further on.

As I said above, I used a tutorial this week which created a graphic version of my Autumn leaves.
Inspired by Lynne who’s been using the median filter this month- I wanted to give it a try for myself. With no idea where to find it and not having used it before, I did a search on how to use it in PS. I found it under the Noise filter and also found the tutorial that uses it to create a water colour effect. You’ll find this tutorial here.
I’m starting with last week’s image file again. I added a couple more very soft water colour marks into the background.
Next (using the tute), I created a layer using the Filter Gallery – Cut Out – Blend mode / Luminosity 50%. Again another layer using the Filter Gallery – Dry Brush – Blend mode / Screen 100% and finally another layer – This time using Noise, Median – Blend Mode / Soft Light 60%…and finally I reduced the brightness.

This is my final result for May. As Nic suggested, I was going for a very colourful finish!! Good guess Nic 😀
Your kind thoughts and comments are always welcome and appreciated!
..and because it’s week 4, I’m including a gallery of all of my images for May.. I’ve really enjoyed this image. It hasn’t been a hard one to work with. Phew! 😛
I’m also including a poll, so that you can vote for your favourite, if you’d like .
How did you go? Looking forward to seeing what you’ve done again this week and your May finale!!
I am still making my way through everyone’s posts – please do bear with me – I’m a little busy with my day job presently 😉
Ok, let’s finish May in grand style and cheer each other on 😀
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.A bit about the review month/s
The review month will be a regular part of the challenge from now on. I hope you like the idea and make it work for you.. You can read more about it ‘here‘
This is how it will work – and this way we can plan ahead, knowing what’s coming up.
Please TAG with One Four Challenge – thanks so much.
