I used one of the filters from the 100 Cameras App for iPad to achieve an old-timey Painterly effect.
I love the names for their filters. I think this one might have been "I Remember the Clouds from that Day" or maybe it was "The Light Fell Between the Trees." I saved several versions, but it doesn't save the meta-data, so I'm not entirely sure just which filter this was.
But I couldn't stop there ... Back into PhotoShop Elements to add Kim Klassen's Linen Texture Brush for that little something extra. If you click on this image to see a larger version, you'll see the linen texture. The addition of the Linen Brush makes it look like it's painted/printed to canvas.
Here's the original image, with pesky power lines and antennae removed.
A real Wisconsin Barnstead, complete with a dusting of snow.
