Leo: App Recipe

I put this image together while watching the Season Finale of Game of Thrones. I'm not a fan of the Lannisters (except for Tyrion!), but I do love lions.

For this one, I took a star photo from Wikimedia Commons (public domain) and another dictionary shot, this time with the entry for the constellation Leo.

I took both photos into Image Blender, with an 80/20 blend...

And then I took the resulting image into Image Blender (40/60 Blend) with one of my lion statue pics, taken with Instagram's Earlybird filter, and then put through Magic Hour's Sepia setting. (I also used Photo Forge to give it a horizontal flip.)

From there, the resulting image was taken into Photo Toaster, given a Yellow Filter, Old Paper Texture and the Funky Frame.

And here is the result...


  1. Now this is so cool!! I would have never thought about combining these three images...very impressive, indeed!! Thanks so much for joining in the fun at The Recipe Book Project!

  2. Oh wow! Fabulous end result. Love your lion!

  3. Thank you both! :)

    The lion in the image is one of those plastic garden "statues" that's supposed to look like stone. He somehow got a hole in the side of his head, so we hide him on the corner of the patio so you can't see it. I love it too much to throw it out just because it's broken.

  4. Very cool! Glad you joined the project!
