I don’t know why I like doing these, but I do… part 9…

I know, that looks simple, but there is some level of difficulty to this. I have to take an image and somehow separate the part I want to leave colored from the parts that I don’t. For this one, I made a copy of the image first. Then, I removed all the color by changing the image to gray scale. Then I changed it back to RGB color. Trying to cut all the little details and protrusions off at one go was impossible, so I did it in parts, on the copy of the original image. I actually ended up cutting the little crosses and details off last, zooming in very close to the image, and cutting around individual pixels in some places. I did have to go back and clean up the final version a little, getting rid of blue sky that had transferred with my little cut-and pastes. Staying zoomed in, I just used the eyedropper to pick up the gray sky color, and then used the pen tool to get rid of the little bits of blue.

It took me about half an hour to do that image, for those of you who care.

This one was actually tricky to do, but I am getting better, learning a few tricks… I am going to do more of them.

So, yeah, it’s just a photo. A super-close-up macro photo of the bubbles in this…

… which is a glass paperweight I made in my glass blowing class. But then I put the photo in Photoshop and did a bunch of mirror image effects on it…

And then I put the first image in a free online program, and did some other digital effects to it.

So, as far as medias go…

We have glass blowing, photography, and multiple digital effects…

And now I am sharing these on my blog, Twitter, and Facebook.

So I suppose that technically, I could throw a few more ‘multiples’ in the title.

But you know me…

I don’t like to seem like I am showing off… or bragging… or anything like that.

Oh, and I may have gotten carried away with the mirror image effects on another version…

“You know, in terms of water, this storm is really wet, the wettest water ever, and probably the most moist moisture the world has ever seen”…

Okay, I might be paraphrasing just a little, but I guarantee that what tRump said was at least as stupid as that.
