Photo Painting Computer Background

Today's project is my design team image for Digitally Made.

The prompt we have for you this month is
to use Pets/Animals on your 100% digital project.

Although I have had several pets over the years that
I could have easily made a digital scrapbook layout of,
I decided to edit a digital photo of a bird for this project.
I wanted to make it look sort of like a painting.
I then added a quote. 

Original photo before editing in On1 Photo 10 software.
This pretty sandpiper (?) had been flitting back and forth
between a little bit of wood still above the flood waters
and the exposed gravel at the end of our flooded driveway.
It was late in the evening, the sun was well behind the treeline
so the lighting was not great. I took a few photos of it anyway 
since it's not a bird we would normally see in our yard !
The flood waters obviously pushed it inland. 

Simple edits to the photo to make it resemble a painting: 
Painted Photo filter, Watercolor Bright
Brown Rice Paper texture
Fibers texture (reduced opacity)
Text box added in Photoshop Elements 14, GistX Upright Bold font
Embossed edge in Photoshop Elements 14

The edited photo makes a nice computer screen background.

It could be printed onto card stock to make a card:

or even made into a print for a wall !

Upload a digital photo to nearly any photo processing site
for numerous product ideas to have it put on!

Thanks for looking =)
