PostSubject: January Technique - Stained Glass Filter   Tue Jan 02, 2018 5:42 am

Hi Everyone! It's 2018 - crazy right?! It's freezing outside, and we are all huddled inside in our cozy little house. I'm enjoying the family time and the down time that the after holidays brings! I love winter only to become a little hermit a little more often!

Today, we are going to continue to explore filters available in Photoshop. I happened upon this one by accident playing around with other filters, and loved how it turned out! I'm using papers from Mirjam's Time Flies Kit (http://the-lilypad.com/store/Time-Flies-Papers.html).

Here is the original pattern of paper:


Next, I will choose Filter, and Filter Gallery from the drop down menu. There are so many available, and so many more to try! lol!


Once the pop up screen opens, you will choose the Texture Folder, and then within that, the Stained Glass Filter. There is also a drop down that you can choose the Stained glass Filter from as well. Here are both, and you will capture a glimpse of the paper.




For the settings, I have a Cell Size of 42, Thickness of 3, and 0 for Light Intensity. Cell size determines how big or small the colors sections are. 42 is on the smaller side. Thickness is referring to the line that separates each colored section, just like Stained Glass. This color is based on the Foreground Color. Light intensity removes color from the section.


Here is what my paper now looks like!

Somehow, I have one grey colored section. I would either cover that with elements or other papers, or recolor that to match another section.

Here is another paper:


And, here is how it turned out when using the Stained Glass Filter. Again, one odd section, but otherwise really cool! I love that it kind of keeps to the pattern!


For this paper, I changed the line color to a darker blue to match the paper. I just used the color picker to choose the color, and then the filter does the rest.


Last, it a fun way to use this filter and combining texture and stained glass. I've grabbed a wood grain paper. Who doesn't love woody paper!?


Next, when choosing the options, I made my sections a little bigger to 45 and the separation lines a little thicker at 11.


Here is the final paper.


Now, I decided to take this paper and place it on top another copy of the original wood grain paper. I then changed my blend mode to Multiply at 58%. Here is what it looks like now. What do you think? You can also see where the darker spots on teh wood grain have darker Stained Glass sections. Pretty neat to see how the software works in that manner.


I hope you found this technique different, fun and simple to try! We would love to see what you create using this idea!
Have a great time trying it out!

Thanks for stopping by,
