Pastel Portrait

I have been experimenting with different filters in Photoshop Elements.   The possibilities are limitless!

To the original photo: duplicated photo, adjusted sharpness, removed color, adjusted lighting levels; hard light blend mode; artistic filters (poster edges and rough pastels - canvas texture); hue/saturation adjustment layer. Finally added a texture over top and lowered opacity.

I need to do a self portrait...but since I have let my gray grow in I haven't gotten used to the new 'me' :) Love what you did with this one of you.
