My inspiration was the Rise WordART Mix No 1 Quote #3, “Turn your face to the sun and the shadows fall behind you.” - Maori Proverb
Construction: I used ArtPlay Palette Gentle Morning Solid Paper #1, with Solid Paper #2 blend mode Linear Burn.
I placed the 12x12Page FotoBlendz No 9 # 1, clipped the photo (Public Domain on PxHere) and shrank the mask to fit the vertical photo better, then using some brushes to blend.
I added ArtsyTransfers Gentle Morning #1 and #4 (some under the fotoblendz).
I used several brushes and art strokes from the palette.
I placed the 2 elements, foliage and bark, from the palette. I used Rise WordART Mix No 1 and “exquisite light” with a stroke around the word “light”. Under the cluster and word art, I placed FotoGlow Mix No 2 #5.
