Digital Expressions-Veruca's Dream-Painting with Color Fill Layers

From Susan Tuttle's "Digital Expressions."

This one is about trying to create a timeless feel with hand-painted portraits. The technique is simple: Select area, Feather, Fill Solid Layer with a matching color, adjust opacity of new layer. You do this over and over again for each area you want to color, such as skin, hair, lips, eyes, hats, boas.  Here's mine. So much fun! I used Coffeeshop's Vintage Lace Texture. I tried other textures but the effect was not subtle enough or was too much for the photo. This works pretty well.
