La La La Lemon revisited

Skinnymini ecourse (see http://www.kimklassencafe.com) in Photoshop and layers homework for Day 4. This took a lot out of me! So not used to layers. This one had 6 layers in the end. Background, then screen blending mode, then a paint layer using a sponge brush to fill in areas of too much light from orig image and used the pin light blending mode on that, then a solid color adjustment layer that I used a yellow from the lemon to deepen/brighten, then a text layer that I used warp text to match the curve of the lemon and soft light (not sure I like that blending mode for the text though), then an adjustment curves layer to whiten the white and bump it up a little.

Whew! What a work out!
