October Challenge #4 - Seasonal — At Oscraps https://oscraps.com/community/threads/october-challenge-4-seasonal.34213
The challenge required us to scrap the least favorite part of the season and although they might not be the #1 thing I dislike about fall, acorns are truly a pain in the butt. When I am trying to walk on my uneven lawn, acorns make me lose my balance, and one of these down, they are going to bring me down.
I tried something new when I made the gold glitter leaf, there might be an easier or better way so if there is, please share
I opened the leaf file in photoshop, then duplicated that layer. I added a layer mask to the bottom layer. Then I went to the top layer, Image>Adjustements>Threshold. I adjusted the slider so there was a speckling of white in the black. Then I went to Select> Color Range. I lowered the Fuzziness to 9 and then selected the white spots, Next, I turned the visibility of the top layer off, clicked on the Layer Mask, and then erased the selections. Last I used the glitter layer style to make it look like a lacy gold leaf.
