An old photo, taken a few years ago, converted to b/w and played with a bit using filters and blending. Texture by Pareeerica and the text overlay is a brush. The balloon I painted red was originally green, and the sky a brilliant blue!
The photo below was taken in 2004 on a trip to San Francisco--another brilliant blue sky! I added a layer with the Photocopy filter applied, then a bit of blur. Bonnie's texture, Nitty Gritty, was also added, for...well...texture.
