Three Muses Challenge



The theme this weekat the Three Muses is bottles and jars! The bottles in the window image is from Howard33 on Flickr, the ladies are from June at ArtFreebies. Being new at this photoshop stuff my skills are limited, so I was quite proud of myself to be able to get the ladies on the outside of the window.

Now if I could figure out to how to get things inside those bottles.....lots to learn, lots to learn....
I am trying to do one or two challenges a week to force myself to experiment with different tools in my Photoshop Elements 8 program. I sometimes start and don't get finished. I made sure I started right away on this challenge so here it is, hope you like it!

Well to me this looks amazing and very clever. Does not look like the work of a "beginner" at all, - wished I could do it, well done!!

Beautifully done Lucy. I think that must be a beauty shop window they're looking in to and drooling over all the lovely things inside.

José said...

Beautiful! The bottles are great, it's a mysterious piece.

You needn't apologize, Lucy. This piece is a visual feast of color, and the ladies outside the window are beautifully blended. Pat yourself on the back!!! Thanks for joining us this week.

Looks great so far. The beauty of Photoshop is that you can't really go wrong. Just keep playing. I love it!

Good on you Lucy to get those ladies on the outside of the window to make such a lovely piece.

I'm smiling, because you will soon realize how to get things 'into' those bottles and then you will smile too.

Great work ...... keep on experimenting.

This is fantastic. I cannot believe you are new to photoshop. Just fantastic!

Svenja said...

I like your ghostly ladies. As I don't do any digital work (yet) I guess I can never fully appreciate how much skill this takes - and your picture didn't strike me as a beginner's work (if that means anything to you, coming frome a digi-dummie).

Effie said...

Fab dreamy colour combo! Love it!

Silvia said...

Fantastic digital work in great colours.

Carol Anne's Boutique said...
