Photo Manipulation in Photoshop

I’m not going to lie when I say that this wasn’t easy to do. When I first looked at the tutorial I was just like “ok cool this is going to be a piece of cake” but boy was I wrong. There is a lot that goes into this but I will say that this is such a cool skill to learn. I have this weird (almost impossible) dream of knowing everything there is to know about Photoshop so when I learn new things like photo manipulation, it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. I don’t know what I’ve become either haha.

So for the process, I followed this tutorial. It was actually very clear but I don’t know what was going on with me while I was in Photoshop. I used this image of my roomate Paige that I took for a fun shoot. She’s an art person so I figured that she would enjoy being turned into water color. I basically selected her head then opened a water color texture and placed it on her then added some text. In all reality, there were a few more steps that went into it but that’s what I did for the most part.
