Assignment: Do Lesson 9, then expand the graphic and add your own line of text to which you've applied another style. Then, add it to the pear project and apply a filter.
Let's see... I followed the directions for the diesel
picture. Then went on to the pears and did basically
what they said to do, but then applied some different
filters to the bottom row of pears. Once that was
completed, I put the pear picture where the rust copy
layer was combined with the diesel text. I followed the
same directions in the book to do it. I also added
another layer with the pear picture right above the rust
background. I did a horizontal and vertical flip and
moved it around under the grill to the desired location.
I then merged down so that the pears and the rust were
merged together. Then, I used the smudge tool to mesh
the two images together, so it didn't look so 'straight
line'. Then I added text in black. The font is Italian
Cursive 16th Century (my favorite font!). I did a drop
shadow and bevel and emboss with default settings.
Then flattened and saved. This was neat, but I can't
wait to get to something where I can be a little more
creative...I'm not really into diesels and pears...lol
