Summary: A little bit of Joan and Randy

mirage

This one was fairly simple. Applied a smart blur layer, high pass layer set to overlay, hue/sat and curves layer to lighten. Then overlayed a coloured texture layer set to exclusion and masked the central charachters. Exclusion setting gives a nice outline in colour, just for something a bit different.  A white layer reduced to 7% and set to screen and then a masked black layer for the vignette which I duplicated to bring it out a bit more. I use teh marquee tool with feather set to 100px to create the mask so that the black bleeds back into the picture a little.

Ooh, I like what you've done with the scaling of the textures in this one! It gives it a nicely surreal pop-arty feel.

Dear, sweet Joan and Randy. At least we know they're not lame. And the banner is just as lovely. Good job, sweetie.
