Dream Girl Image Manipulation
Create a new canvas of 400x400 with a transparent background
Import your picture of your dream girl, my girl is:
Now, duplicate the layer, and to your new layer do a filter>blur>gausian blur> 1.5 and then set your layer mode to overlay.
click on the duplicate layer of your dream girl, and press ctrl+l to get the levels edit and so something like this, so that she becomes even more vibrant:
You should have something like this, you should also see how its becoming "dreamy"
Now take your brush tool, and with brush like so:
select white as your colour and create a new layer and draw around the edges of your canvas, so that there is no edges that are touching your dream girl.
Now make press ctrl+f (which should repeat your gausian blur, if it doesnt undo and put a guasian blur on it).
You should experiment with this a little with rough zig zags of your white border so that it is not a box, and has a more cloudy feeling.
Now create a layer inbetween your duplicated layer and the original.
Now, you'll need a picture of clouds, I have provided on here.
Open this picture in phtosohp, and then cut and paste into the new layer you have created (layer 4 in my screenshot)
Press ctrl+shift+u and it should desaturate your clouds (make it greyscale) and then set the layer mode to screen
Press ctrl+l to bring up the leves again, and drag the arrow to the left to the middle, this willl increase the black in the image, do so until you can see the clouds on the images like so:
Now duplicate your clouds layer, as well as play with the levels and the rotation/size to make all the edges a little more cloudy, I got this:
Now take a render like this one, and put it in a layer that is underneth your clouds layer.
*NOTE, it can be any render, or stock photo, this is just supposed to give some detail*
Press ctrl+u to make it greyscale, and the layer mode to overlay.
Now move it around so that there are some lines on her face, and it looks good:
There isnt much else you can do but play with the level of the original or the duplicate layer of your dream girl, but i hope you can use your skills to great something like this:
