Here is my Vintage Image

Click on an image for a larger view.

This is my neighbor Grace. Cutie isn't she!
I did a few things... I followed yesterday's tutorial on my original image. I then duplicated that layer and applied the Orton effect to the original image. Combined my layers into one image using the shortcut Ctrl, Alt, Shift E. I then deleted everything but my original and the Orton layer. Next I used a layer mask to make her eyes and lips clear from the original. I then lowered the opacity of the Orton layer, used the earlier shortcut to combine the layers into a new image yet again. Applied a chocolate filter to the new image and an Antique frame. I am not sure where I downloaded the frame? If someone knows, please leave a comment and I will add the link.
Thanks so much for looking.
Hope you have a great day!

As a side note: If you do not know how to apply the Orton Effect? The directions are coming soon. See you then.
