Fix-It Friday #59 at i heart faces

It's Friday and time for another "fix-it" at iheartfaces! 

Here is the original picture, taken by Julie Rivera:
I seriously could not find much of anything to "fix" with this weeks picture and to top it off, she is just adorable! Here is what I came up with:

As usual, I opened the picture up in Camera Raw of CS5 Photoshop and did a really slight white balance adjustment and then brought it into photoshop. I ran AMPs "clean it up" action over it and "softly" from her "A Little Sugar" set. Then I choose a texture to play with because this picture was really calling out "texture" to me. I did a few different layers of the texture, masking out parts of her as I went along and changing the modes on the different layers. And in the end I brought a layer of just texture to the top, cut out the middle, leaving a frame. Did a drop shadow and a bevel and emboss on the frame. Then merged all the layers except the frame. I duplicated the merged layers layer and brought it to the top and made it into a hidden mask, revealing only parts of the picture (the top of her head, the bottom part of the blanket) to make it look as if she was crawling out of the frame.

A super cute and fun picture to play with!!
And if you want to see more "fixes" be sure to head on over to!



  1. I like how she's crawling out of the frame - I'll have to experiment with that.

  2. I is a fun fix with her crawling out of the frame...well done!

  3. LOVE THIS! Exactly what the other two said...LOVE how she is crawling out of the frame. Can you tell us where you got your frame?

    Following you...

  4. Thank you!
    Jennifer- the frame is made from the texture I used. I explained how I did it in the last part of the description, but if you have any questions about it feel free to ask and I'll try to explain it better/more.

  5. oh how sweet is this! Love the border and is that a texture you used? Not sure but what ever it is it just turned out great! I think this would look great converted to B&W also with the border kept in color. What do you think?

  6. So interesting and unique with the border and texture. I love it!

  7. I love your fix! That is very creative and amazing!

  8. This turned out beautiful, i love the OOB effect, thank you for choosing my Texture:))


It's always so nice to receive feedback! Thank you!
