Experimenting with PhotoShop (and getting a little bit excited about the possibilities)

I am forever looking at other people's work (Adam Bird and Holly Rose), and thinking..."I want to be able to do that!"

Now, I have by no standards cracked the code of PhotoShop. I mean, let's face it, that programme is like a black hole; never ending editing techniques which I find almost impossible to tackle because of the sheer anxiety it gives me. 

But I decided today that I would experiment, and try out one of the gazillion ideas I have floating around in my head. 

Now, please don't be too judgemental will you? I know this is a very rough first draft, but I would be lying if I told you that I wasn't happy with it. I'm bloody over the moon. I've had so much fun doing this and trying out one of my ideas. 

I hope you like it! I've included a few different edits and then the original so you can see what I had to work with to start off with. 

Ta Dah!


And...here is the original image
