Let’s Blend Challenge – Threshold Filter

It’s the last Let’s Blend Challenge of the decade! I thought it might have some fun and work with the Threshold filter. It is really quite easy, so here we go.

I used this image a few years ago for our Christmas card, and it’s a pretty good example of how the filter works.

First, Activate the image you want to use in the layers palette.

Go to Image, Adjustments and Threshold. Drag the slider over until the photo looks the way you want it.

With the Threshold layer still active, use the Magic Wand tool and tap the black part of the image.

With the marching ants still active, Command(mac)/Control (PC) +J to duplicate the black portion of the photo. You may have to do this a few times to get all of the black areas of the photo. Just keep duplicating your threshold image and highlight them with the magic wand tool.

You can now clip a paper to those black portions, by turning off the eye icon to the bottom photo and activate the threshold image.

Add any brushwork, paper, or elements you want to complete your page.

When creating your page, you can use all or some of the products Katie has generously  provided in the freebie pack. Remember to post them in the Mask Appeal Challenge Gallery and link up your page in the December Challenge Participation Thread, for proper credit.

I hope you all have a wonderful Holiday Season. See you in 2020!
