on
Art Creations Friday

How it was done using Paint Shop Pro

I started with the vintage picture of a lady from France
with the background made transparent

Made a new layer and then did Arrange/Move to bottom
Select all.
Pasted into selection a background picture
Effect 1: Applied default Seamless Tile to this background layer
Then applied Gaussian Blur 15
Then on to the Effects.
Effect 2: Simple/Diamonds
Effect 3: 4 Way Average
Added a new Layer above background
Did Flood Fill with selected light color from tube.
Reduced opacity to 50%
Merged down
Buttonized the whole to make it look a bit like a French postcard.
Working on the top layer tube now.

Effect 4: Art Media/Brush Strokes (not default)
Effect 5: Edge Effect/Enhance More
Effect: 6: Eye Candy 3.1 Glow (not default)
Effect 7: Xero/Porcelain to soften any too obvious lines or sharp edges.
Effect 8: VM Natural Sparkle (not default)

Added Border 25 pixels in white
Selected with magic wand and pasted pattern previously created from the Background
Into the frame.
