What's your favorite line from a song, and why?

"Babe you've played my heart but the way you played it, it was art"
Julian Plenti - Games for Days
'Cause it's poetry and art.

Do you collect anything? If so, what do you collect, and what made you start your collection?

I used to collect snow domes. But they really need an awful lot of space and cleaning so I stopped :)

So here's another tutorial for you. Hope you like it! Have fun :)

to

STEP 01

Choose your pic, crop it down and sharpen if necessary. I took this one of Kristen Stewart. Gosh, you guys must be thinking that I'm a Twilight fan oÔ Ashley Green, Kristen Stewart. But I'm NOT. Just wanted to make that clear ;)


STEP 02
Duplicate your base and set it to "SCREEN 100%". Maybe you'll have to change the opacity 'cause for some pics 100% will be to bright. Just play a little with it and find out what matches your pic!


STEP 03

Create a new color balance layer.
MIDTONES -50 37 0
SHADOWS 33 -13 -100

Now it looks a little bit weird actually. But that will change in the next step :)



STEP 04

Create a new channel mixer layer.
RED          GREEN          BLUE
144              -51              -105
 -60             148               175
   0                0                  44


STEP 05
A new channel mixer layer again.
RED          GREEN          BLUE
155             -32              -105
-44             132               177
   0                0                  10




AND NOW YOU'RE READY :D

Hey (:
So after letting this journal untouched for more than three years I decided to start it.
I'm not sure what I want to do, but I think it'll be mainly about music, films, books and designing.
This entry is more like a test-entry, so dont' expect something important from me ;)
