    This is called "Reconciliation at the Altar" . Started with a brick wall and developed the object from there with roses and shadows, blurs. I like the effect and mood.

    Zebra Crossing. Shadows are all wrong, but the illusion somehow works. Created from a photo I liked of the sea and made the table from the textures of the photograph, added shadows, then rippled the whole thing to look like a wall hanging. Love the effect. Love using paint.net Paint Spill uses the spaces between the letters to form the words. This drawing is called "Worship from a wounded heart". It's a religious piece. Angel wings. Really liked the effect of this. Colours came from a photo of the sky flying home from Europe (from the plane window). Another take on Angel Wings. Soft effect and colours from the sky at sunset from a plane window. The words Lost and Found are made from the space between the two words. It took ages to get the rust effect. Again, fiddling around with the spaces between the words. Picture for a blog. This started off using an ancient coin for the middle and ended up as quite a nice shield and sword. The shield is marked by the fight already. This was created from scratch also, to depict "age" but based on some photos I liked with light coming through a window. First came the floor, giving it perspective and texture, then the light from the window and giving it perspective over the top, then rays of light coming from somewhere above and finally the old man and his shadow with a little vignette to finish. I was really pleased with the result. Love using Paint.net. Old table-top truck. Build this up piece by piece, layer by layer until I achieved the effect I wanted. Has atmosphere. Reminds me of an old farm. All Seeing Eye. Experimenting with getting glass effects. Glass Portrait. Wanted to get the effect of glass in the shadows. It has partially worked. I have called this "Jealousy" which eats away at a persons soul and their ability to see reality. Did this for my blog. Goats. I like this collage effect. Created for my blog on a story in the Bible about Jacob. This looks like a Space man but look closer. His head is made of a camera. His body is a latch from a case, His arms are pipes. His legs are those of an elephant. Loved experimenting with this. Removal Van Blues. used different textures to create boxes. Just having fun with Smudge and Liquify. Where is that Cat? Australian Pelican landing on water. Used distortion addon for the water and fiddled with the reflections. Background photo from a photo I took in Europe of a beautiful sky and Pelican photo I took while on holidays recently at the Entrance in Australia. Distorted some colours for the spray of water on yet another layer. Created shadows etc. The Pelican was simply flying up onto a cement landing but I used it to make this picture instead. Loved the result. Key to Internet

    Try this: Select the text tool. Click on your canvas and type some text. Click the font drop down. (It drops down) Click it again. (It closes up) Keeping your mouse over the font names, use your mouse scrollwheel to preview fonts.

    Another option for softening the hairline is the Edge Expander. Use the Lasso tool to select the hairline region. Set the Edge Expander Maximum Distance very low, the Fade Rate to 1, and the Opacity Threshold to some value that gives the best result, probably mid-range. For either FurBlur or Edge Expander, I suggest duplicating the foreground image, then applying the effect to the lower layer. That way things like the contrast and brightness can be tweaked, and perhaps a small blur can be applied. A third option is the Zoom Blur. After duplicating the foreground layer, make the Lasso selection, then apply Zoom Blur to the lower layer. Set the zoom origin in the center of the head and apply a small zoom.

    As an alternative to Surface Blur, you might try Laplacian Pyramid Filter with Detail handling set to greater than 1. One trick is to apply smoothing followed by Sharpen.

    Pixey, I think you're the PDN user that some of us here wish they can be. A new thing comes up, you make something out of that and make it your own. The latest one is something of awe as usual. It can be hung as a wall decor on a dining room and I imagine having a glass table on a nice front porch and that beautiful piece sits elegantly on the top of the table covered with glass as I sip my morning and afternoon tea. Amazing!

    Thank you very much @lionsDragon . Good luck with the texture merger - it certainly took over my life for days on end and less time shopping at the mall
