Fairy Garden Effect

After I attempted the fairy garden effect edit in my previous post, I took it upon myself to try it again and see if I could create a better result.  Well, I did it two more times, so I will show you the progression of my work, starting with the SOOC image.

SOOC:  Just my Afton being her cute little self.  Shot with my Fujifilm JV100 point and shoot.

First fairy garden edit.  I didn't quite understand how to use the paint brush to paint off effects, so she became really washed out.

Second fairy garden edit.  After messing around for awhile, I finally figured out how the paint brush effect worked, plus I did a couple extra edits before I started to make the photo a bit darker to begin with.

Third fairy garden edit.  In this one I actually tweaked a few steps of the tutorial, just to see how it would turn out.  I added a black fill to a second layer mask, which really helped to keep the photo from getting too bright.

All in all, I am pretty proud of how much I was able to figure things out for myself, and I will definitely use the effect again in the future on other photos!

Yes! It was sooooo much fun learning how to do something different with my photos, my husband was starting to get upset because I was spending so much time at the computer putzing around, ha!
