the CoffeeShop's Perfect Portrait 3 for skin softening, but I lowered that down to 38%; even still it might have taken away more detail than I intended. I also used the soft glow layer on her face (18%). Now here is where I have to laugh. I had softened to death the background, but I needed to use a texture. So I added Kim Klassen's Canvas Magic~screen layer per her tip. LOVE it! But her face...well, not so pretty, so I circled her again, but this time used a Gaussian blur on the part in the circle to remove the texture from the texture but keep the color. Seems kind of silly that I used so many different softening methods to make a picture with textures.
Anyway, the important thing to note is this is Canvas Magic on 100% screen mode~awesome! Now I am tempted to edit even more of my old pictures; I may not have time to take new ones!
