SPC - Paper Cutout


The theme for this month's Self Portrait Challenge is "Online Tools". This photo was modified using the Cutout effect in Photoshop. Looks a little bit cartoonish. I used to love making pictures by cutting out various layers of construction paper and gluing them together. I wanted this photo to be a little closer to the more primitive paper creations that I made as a child, but I couldn't quite get the look that I wanted, so this one will have to do for now.

This one looks really nice! The transition of the colors reminds me of the paint by numbers technique.

Nice!! This will go really well in your tshirt collection, which - by the way - I was not kidding about. Faith is still waiting for her pink "EatYO Breakfast" tee.
