I ♥ Faces! Fix-It Friday

On Monday I entered my first challenge at I Faces and today is "fix-it friday" so I thought I would jump right in and try this for the first time as well.

Here is the original picture submitted for us to "fix":

and here are my edits:
I used Photoshop 7 to adjust the curves and brighten the picture up a bit, added a bit of contrast and sharpening to her eyes, took the color streak in her face/hair out with cloning and used a couple of filters from virtualPhotographer on different levels and set at different opacities to give the picture a finish that I was happy with.

Here I used my second edit and then did a "rough pastels" filter only on the background and then did a partial vintage action on top of it, brushed on a few sparkles and butterflies and added the text.

For the third edit, I started with my second edit (without the sparkles and butterflies) and then used the attic vintage action from CoffeeShop to finish it off.

Be sure to check out the other entries at I Faces Fix-It Friday : !!
